There are Cafes of Bombay that come with stories of their own, and that are so old that they have a significant impact of them to the city. Visiting them is a mandatory part of having the real feel of the city. And the Cafe of Leopold is one such example that resides in the shopping lane of Colaba region of the city.
The cafe is always jammed in with people and has an old school vibe to it, still refreshing in the best possible way, the cafe has seen some dark times as well in past of which the signs still are very much visible with the three gun shot spots still very visible in the walls of the cafe.
But, let us tell you about what it stands for and as even today. The walls grab your attention first. Each corner speaks and tells you how funky yet old school it is. From an old wall art which captures the vibe of the café to a wall covered with Harley Davidson metal plates, Leopold will give your eyes enough to relish. It even has a wall art of Abbey Road in its full glory, with waiters flaunting Leopold T-shirts as they walk past it. With an attentive staff in their arsenal, you will feel nothing but comfortable once you have taken a seat.
Leopold flaunts a wide variety of snacks, salads, appetizers, burgers, pastas and other dishes from the tandoor. The quantity is awesome and we can vouch for the quality. Try out their chicken wings and chicken stroganoff which is absolutely delicious. If you are in the mood for some Chinese, they have a special menu dedicated to that.
Leopold has a variety of fresh juices, milkshakes, teas, coffee and cocktails. Apple martini is strong and tasty and a glass of watermelon juice gives you refreshing start. Try their coke float and chikoo milkshake too while you are at it.
If you still haven’t entered Leopold cafe till date, let us assure you what will catch your attention the most and in an instant are the desserts that sit in display right beside the entry way of the cafe. They are highly vouched for by everyone and are astempting and delicious in taste as they look. Coming to Leopold cafe and not relishing on their desserts is like a work half done.
