In a place like Bandra, we can never have ‘just enough’ coffee shops. The more, the merrier, is what we believe.
Replacing Basilico, this newbie is not so new afterall. They have outlets in Surat, Lucknow, Jabalpur, Vapi, Kadodara, Bardoli and now Mumbai. It’s amazing to see how cafes are taking an effort to do up their interiors and gone are the days where all you got in a coffee shop was a display of cold food and a table to keep it on.
Coffee Culture, located on Hill Road, is chirpy and colourful. When we entered, on a weekday evening, we were quite surprised to see that there was no place to sit, inside or outside. After a wait of ten minutes, we were given a table. Since it was too loud inside (constant chattering and no music), we asked to be shifted outside, which definitely had a better vibe.
We ordered for the Chicken Pizza Wich and Culture Addiction Cold Coffee. The Pizza Wich – a grilled sandwich with cheese and chicken as the filling, was average. The filling could have been better and definitely more cheese! The Culture Addiction was listed under the Dessert Cold Coffee section and was rich, creamy with a hint of hazelnut and was topped with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. It was great, definitely coming back for this one. The menu is so vast that it’s going to take us many visits to try out more stuff on it and we are looking forward to it. The service lacked promptness, hopefully only a teething issue and since it was packed to the t, we can excuse them.
Overall, Coffee Culture is a wonderful addition to the coffee scene and it makes us happy that they have a range of food options. Going back there soon!
