Review: Jiwa Cafe

Bandra is a hub for health and organic cafes as one more enters the market.

Jiwa Roti Concept CafeBrainchild of Mr Raghav Gupta,  Jiwa Cafe offers customised healthy wraps with different Rotis to choose from as your base – Multi-grain, Slimming, Diabetic, Women special, Youth Plus Atta and some more. Choose a main from their limited options as your filling Butter Beans & Feta, Exotic veggies in Balsamic, Tandoori Bhindi Aloo, Paneer Shazlik, Char grilled Fruits and Tofu Parika and top it up with some sauces – Mexican salsa, Greek yogurt, Hummus, Asian Wasabi, Desi Chutney, Nutty Peanut or Pesto.

The cafe has no options for the junk food freaks. Also, they serve only vegetarian fare. The seating is uncomfortable and they don’t deliver so opt for a take away. They also sell packaged atta which is their USP.

Would we go back here? Maybe not. If we do we’d only have a couple of Popsicles.

Overall, Jiwa Cafe didn’t seem to impress us with their fare, although the effort of starting up something different is commendable. If they work on their flavours and prove it to the market that healthy food can be tasty (like their neighbours, Gostana), there have a chance.
