A languorous air at this moderately priced, open-air (non-airconditioned) Bandra restaurant — one block from the ocean — encourages lounging around (especially on lazy afternoons). I try their famous tasty Mutton Biryani. Bheja Masala, Hariyali Fish, Nalli Burrah Kebab that are all well-made and well-priced. Nalli Nihari and Mezbaan Kebabs are worth ordering too. You won't find a bar (but you can order interesting drinks like Mezbaan Special, Pink Special, Mezbaan Masala and more) or great desserts, but ita lovely place to lounge.

Come here for the coffee and the buzz. "A lot can happen over coffee" is the tagline at these gleaming white-floored cafes throbbing with loud music, with oversized movie posters plastered on the walls and a mix of bright colourful sofas as well as relaxed cane furniture all around. Sandwiches, snacks and coffee for the young and young at heart. When you visit, stick to the coffee please - it's grown on 6,000 acres and each location serves an array of international coffees (Aztec, Ethiopian and more) in hot (Espresso, Irish Coffee and more) and cold (Iced Eskimo, Kappi Nirvana to name a couple) options. Rich and frothy Devil's Own and Caffe Frappe are popular. Pastries are strictly average and food (parathas, idlis, dosas and biryanis at some outlets along with the usual pastas, sandwiches, burgers in non-veg and veg options at all outlets) inconsistent - undercooked pasta and dry sandwiches. Quality has taken a bit of a hit as the number of cafes keeps mushrooming (100 and counting). But there's a touch of thoughtfulness in the menu - Vegan Shakes (creamy cold coffee on ice without milk), eggless pastries, Jain-friendly fare and even a couple of Vegan options. Hardcore CCD fans will delight in the array of goodies on the glass-shelves - everything from a tin of coffee powder (try Arabica) and cookies (Choco-Chip or Oatmeal 'n' Honey) to mugs and Espresso Makers. Wherever you are in the city, there's always a CCD near you.
