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.
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)
