Kafeoke is a café- restaurant in Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai which is definitely worth a visit, not because they have out of the world food there but because of it’s location and the sea-beach view that you get when you sit in the first floor balcony. Ask me to define the place in one word and I would say: ‘romantic’. The food and drinks are costly but the pleasure of having them at such a place is worth it. Also, location wise, it is an extremely isolated structure, and a typical beach-house which looks likes a home in every way you look at it. I love places which look and feel homely.

This place has a website, and let me quote some useful info from there:

The food menu comprises of coffees, teas, milkshakes, fresh juices, mocktails, vegetarian and non vegetarian sandwiches, burgers, frankies, hot dogs, kebab platters, fries, salads, cakes, ice cream, desserts and continental dishes in addition to continually updated features from the Greek, French, Lebanese and Italian cuisines. The Lounge works from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm and there is a Saturday night buffet from 8:00 pm and a Sunday Brunch from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

How to reach: To reach this place, turn right from Thirunvamiyur bus depo, hitting the ECR and then take a left from the first traffic signal (immediately after Olive hotel on the left side of the road). Then keep going straight till you hit the beach, and the Kafeoke.

By the way, if you have a band, then you are going to love this place more than I can ever. They have all the facilites for you to play your own song and even record it. Find more of these on their site if you are interested.

Happy Kafeokeing!!

PS: If you saw the traier of Karma, the first scene where characteres are introduced, was shot in Kafeoke.

Update: Map added (Kafeoke is marked with A, notice it’s proximity to Thiruvanmiyur bus-stand)

I have been there a couple of times. First time there was this guy with a horrible voice, who got excited and started singing some crap song… and I spent the rest of the evening searching for cotton swab.

The second time I enjoyed it … the food is pretty cheap too… considering Kafeoke is trying to be in league with Amethyst and Anokee.

Oh and I hate the glass that shields the sea breeze from the balcony area.

Hey! I’m new to the city and was looking up karaoke bars when I stumbled onto your entry. What is the easiest way to get here from Anna Nagar?

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon! 😀

Take a rick. From Anna Nagar it will charge about 150-200 bucks.

Ask the rick to take you to the signal that comes after Thiruvanmiyur bus-stand (the road turns right, almost ninety degress, after you pass the bus-stand on your right-side). If you are seeing the map, you would be approaching ECR from top (north to south).

From the signal on the ECR (it’s less than half a kilometer after you have crossed the bus-stand), take left (East direction) (right side on map), and keep going straight till the road ends and you can spot Kafeoke which is an isolated structure, bang on beach.

All the best.
