So, we have something for everyone here. And you have to stay to uncover it all. Where do we start, though? Let’s get a freak shake at Cafe De Italiano, first. Come!
Stop 1 – Cafe De Italiano
Cafe De Italiano is known for its magnanimous freak shakes. The rustic ambience of the cafe welcomes visitors all throughout the day. It is often noticed that people are either savouring delicious pizza or sipping the infamous freak shakes. We strongly recommend Death By Chocolate Freak Shake; it lures every taste bud that is present in the cafe. Along with the shake, you can munch on BBQ Cheese fries.
Cafe De Italiano is loved for its homely interiors and scrumptious food options.

Stop 2 – The Cafe Baraco
The cafe baraco has been the oldest cafe at Sindhu Bhavan road. However, it is relocated to a new location. Wondering which dish to try here? Order Ravioli Al Pesto. The creamy green texture makes it extremely appetizing. Along with this, you can order The TCB Mojito as an accompaniment.
With modest interiors, Cafe Baraco makes it a great hangout spot, and it is budget-friendly too.

Stop 3 – Parosa
The freak shake was fulfilling, but who says NO to North Indian Cuisine? This thought struck our mind when we spotted Parosa at the opposite end of the road. At Parosa, one must order Veg Mac and Cheese right away. It is fully loaded with cheese and has a mouth-watering creamy texture. In addition to this, let’s dip our fingers in the delicious Dal Makhani with Garlic Naan. Parosa has already got us licking our fingers through its flavoursome food.
Uff! We are full, so full… oh! hey, did someone say Pizza?

Stop 4 – Xero Degrees
Pizza ne kon na pade? This question has led us to our favorite innovative pizza joint. Xero Degrees!!! The hippie interiors of the place welcome us with a wisp of yummy food in making. Well, for pizza tumhare paas 2 raaste hai. Order Pizza in a jar, or eat it in a creative shape. Yes, they serve heart-shaped pizza. Hello lover, rings a bell?
For the Pizza in a jar, try out Minty Tandoori, and for the flatbread, Xero Extravaganza wins the game. We proudly fought for the last slice!!! Why? You’ll know once you get your hands on it.

The relaxing ambience of the cafe is inviting, and the food is delectable too. So it’s a win-win situation right? You can chill out, read a Dan Brown or just soak in the evening breeze.
You should definitely check this one out, as it is steadily becoming the talk of the town.

Stop 6- Ares
We cannot sign off without having a cup of coffee. Ares is an underrated cafe joint. They have such wonderful flavours that have the power to entice the non-coffee drinkers too. Their Mocha Frappe (Hot) is the widely chosen beverage. Ares’s open-air vibe invites visitors in the evening to chat over a cup of coffee. It is a beautiful place to view the sunset.

Stop 7 – Tea Post – The Desi Cafe
Oh hey Chai Person, ruko zara. Hum karte hai kuch prabandh. Tea Post – The Desi Cafe is here to serve you. It is the most favourite chai stall for every amdavadi. Order your cup of tea along with thepla or the OG Maskabun. Even this is an open-air space; perfect for after-college banter.
We feel, we have done equal justice to both the parties, and are ending the food excursion on a delicious note.
