A good book, cosy place and a cup of freshly brewed coffee sums up my kind of reading experience. Book would obviously be your take but if you guys are keen to experience some really explicit reading session with coffee that touches your soul, you must read this.

Books, Coffee, Silence and More books! Doesn’t it sound like the perfect set of ingredients to a peaceful day? There’s something magical about the smell of books along with a cup of coffee. These book cafes lie exactly between noisy coffee shops and extremely silent libraries and that’s what sets them apart.



Food for Thought (FFT) is a book café inside Kitab Khana at Flora Fountain. Housed in a heritage structure that is almost 150 years old, the shelves here stack books that range from the contemporaries to the classics in English, Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi and Urdu languages. The ambienceoffers a blend of the charming books coupled with the fresh aroma of coffee.They say that books are for people who wish they were somewhere else.Book lovers long for their own private space, away from the hollering sounds of traffic, work and sometimes even home. While some read to think (these are rare), some read to write (these are common) and some read to talk (these form the majority), a book café is a space that is well-suited for every reader.
