Cafe in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

Pocketed away in an otherwise unexciting mall, 2km east of central Trivandrum, this laid-back self-styled cafe-bistro is run by a duo of hands-on actors. Indian and international flavours mingle on the punchy menu – from masala omelettes and chilli paneer to pastas, veggie burgers and chocolate sizzler brownies, all carefully prepared with a smile.
