Love & Latte is a chain of cafés with some amazing coffee and tea options on offer.Having visited three of their outlets, I can say they are all outstanding… in terms of service, ambience and well, coffee!! The Andheri outlet is located near the Lokhandwala Circle and is just the ideal place in the swarmed area to enjoy a good cup of coffee. The outdoor seating and evenings are a perfect add-on to that cup! The one at Fort is immaculate in all ways! Perfect location and perfect ambience!
The Malad outlet is located in the commercial Mindspace region, but completely away from the traffic and chaos of the streets. In fact, the outlet located in such a far off corner.. that you can get a little confused locating it. This off-beat location is one of my favourite things about this place. The outlet has an indoor as well as an outdoor seating.The café is huge and spacious. Grab the sofa seats by the windows if you can, they are never available though, so, good luck with that!! The outdoor seating here is not suitable for those who are not comfortable with smoke.
They have a wide variety of beverages to choose from. We tried Coffee Tiramisu, Vintage Cold and Bronze Frost and were absolutely amazed!! It is difficult to pick one from these, but if ‘cold’ is your coffee type then these are your handy options!
Tiramisu Hot Chocolate – I just can’t get over it! It is the perfect blend and the fancy taste blew my mind away! If ‘hot’ is your beverage-type…you have to give this a try.
We also tried the Passion Fruit Mojito which is surprisingly good. I expected a regular lemon based drink with a hip name.. but they meant passion fruit when they said passion fruit… giving us a tangy refreshing drink.
We also tried Paneer Tikka Sandwich, Chicken Tikka Sandwich and Pasta Arrabiata. They are good but not much to rave about.
What you must never ever miss here is their Red Velvet Pastry/Cupcake. What a delight! The soft cream and the delicious cupcake are to die for. I have been a fan of this bundle of happiness since forever!
We also tried the Walnut Brownie with Icecream which is just as amazing. Served hot with dollops of chocolate sauce, it will melt in your mouth and make you fight for another bite!
Overall Experience: The service is friendly and the beverages are amazing.I would suggest you stick to beverages as the sandwiches and pasta are just basic (sometimes not even that). But the coffee will more than compensate for the rest!
Also, the place is open till late making it the perfect option for satiating the midnight coffee cravings!
The battle: Are you kidding? I was raving about their Tiramisu Hot Chocolate and Red Velvet Cupcake like ten seconds ago!! Try them and you will know what a battle is when you have to decide which one to repeat!
