Cafe Lalten, as fresh as it gets!

Cafe Lalten is an innovative name and goes well with the ambiance of the cafe. The decor is chic though very homely at the same thing.

A make shift library adorns the walls on one side of the restaurant while the other side is stacked with Cafe Lalten mugs and bottles and other accessories. One can pick up any book and spend hours reading and subsequently forgetting about hoohalla outside. Infact, while we were seated there, we had enough of privacy along with a sense of tranquility that resulted in us losing track of time and reaching home late!

We were sitting in the AC section while most of the crowd was in the non-AC section probably for the WIFI available here. Probably that was the reason for the enhanced privacy, if I can say so. Oh my friend also noted that a lot of people who come to Lalten areaantels (slang for intellectuals) probably for the awesome ambiance and the WIFI.

Anyways, back to Lalten, we ordered for Watermelon Juice and Shaadi Walli Coffee. The watermelon Juice was fresh and extremely refreshing in this hot and humid weather. The coffee, besides being very frothy, wasn’t much different than a normal Nescafe coffee.

We also ordered for a Chicken Kebab Sandwich and an almond brownie. The Sandwich was fresh. It tasted fresh. The veggies were freshly cut, the bread felt fresh (and not microwave reheated bread) and the chicken was soft and tender. One single sandwich made me a fan of Cafe Lalten.  Nevermind the great ambiance and the WIFI and the hours and hours one can spend here chitchatting. The almond brownie was a first for me! And they were very liberal with the almonds which truly made it an almond brownie and not just a brownie with a couple of almonds attached.

The food was good, the drinks were refreshing and the ambiance was pleasing. The pricing isn’t too bad either and easily affordable. Lalten also serves Chaat items which is what I really wanted to try but couldn’t as the counter was closed that day! Probably will keep it for my next visit!

    I never had a Chicken Kebab sandwich but it looks very yummy. Also, the watermelon drink looks really refreshing. Was the watermelon drink sweet?

      Yes but it was naturally sweet 🙂 and very refreshing indeed :). You can avoid the chicken kebab sandwich here and instead go for chicken kebabs available in most restaurants in Mumbai!

    Love the photo, the place looks authentic,charming and inviting. I kinda get a kick out of the “Red Bull” cans in the chiller.

    I love to eat at places that are comfortable and casual. This place looks like it’s both. I’ll echo what it seems others are saying; the chicken sandwich looks fantastic.

    Of course, the brownie would have a special place in my stomach too. 😀

    Thanks for sharing!

    I would be 350lbs if I followed your diet, but I sure do enjoy living vicariously through your posts and pictures 🙂

    That’s one delicious looking sandwich.
    The brownie you had is technically a “blondie” based on the photo. 😉
