A friend of a friend who knows we like to try new places told us – if you are ever in Thane, try out Café Amigos.
Zomato, when we were in Thane last week showed suggested places – Café Amigos.
A coffee mug we randomly spotted with a Sombrero and moustache again reminds us of Café Amigos.
So before the universe got any more obvious, and dropped a coconut on our head that said ‘Head to Café Amigos now, you dimwits’ we decided it was time to check this place off our to-try list!
Café Amigos is a cozy place with a happy vibe. The moment we stepped in and the aroma of something nice being cooked hit us, we smiled thinking what we had been missing all this while! The café is not very huge, with 2 tables downstairs and 3-4 tables on the mezzanine floor. There is an outdoor sitting arrangement as well, that is so apt for evenings!
Raw undone ceilings with light bulbs hanging via long wires add a rustic charm. The walls are adorned with number plates, colourful metal boxes, a vintage camera here and a typewriter there, aluminium kettle, a vintage recorder and more. We love how messily good these look! A small open kitchen is located on the lower floor and it whips up awesomeness! The service is super friendly and impeccable!
The menu is pretty spread out and one can find English breakfast options, cereals, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, shawarma alongside salads, smoothies, tea and coffee! The café serves breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. There is plenty of parking space nearby and the place is located on a comparatively peaceful lane.
Here is what we dug into:
Veg. Melting Sandwich – It should rather be called heart melting sandwich! A triple decker surprise with veggies, cottage cheese, lots and lots and lots more of cheese, spices, mayonnaise and more sauces! It just drives you crazy with that cheese-filled aroma and then makes you lick the last morsel off the plates. So filling and delicious! Yummy!
Egg Omelette Sandwich – An Indian spiced and perfectly cooked omelette sandwiched between grilled bread pieces! It is served with a chilli mayo dip. Loved it!
Pink Sauce Pasta – Apparently, their pasta is well known and now we know why! Penne pasta in a deliciously creamy and herbed pink sauce with lots of veggies. It was non-spicy but well flavoured.
Now that we are done with telling you what we hogged on, let us take you to 7th heaven with the shakes at Café Amigos! Trust us when we say, the phrase ‘No one can have just one’ was made after taking a sip of one of these delights!
The have an extensive list of shakes and some will just take you by surprise! The shakes are thick, very flavourful and refreshing. All of them fall in the price range of ₹150 to ₹200 and are totally worth it, although, we would definitely want their quantity to be a bit more!
♥ Cookie-Gingerbread Oreo Shake – What is not to like in this one? Oreo with a slight hint of ginger and cinnamon flavours! Superb!
♥ Mudpie Shake – If we had to pick a favourite, we would without a doubt pick this one. At first, you think it is only a chocolate milkshake but give it a maximum of two seconds and you will know the full depth of flavours in this one! Love at first sip we say!
♥ Rajbhog Shake – This saffron spiced refreshing drink takes you to another level. It has authentic flavours and is not overwhelmingly sweet. And the aroma is amazing!
♥ Paan Shake – The first sip of this minty delight and you will know why paan is called a mouth freshener! So refreshing.
♥ Cold Coffee Shake – And of course we tried coffee! It was perfect. Strong coffee kick and not too sweet. Loved it!
There are many more flavours that we wanted to try here. So yep, there is going to be a next time and soooooon!
Overall Experience: Café Amigos is our new amigo! Delicious food, pocket-friendly prices and superb service. And did we tell you they have a kick-ass playlist as well? Our total bill came to ₹1352 ,which is a steal for that delicious food 😍
Tha Battle: You and your amigos will no longer be amigos if one of them lay hands on one of your shakes! Speaking from experience, ‘coz our friendship got seriously tested here! :D” width=”16″ height=”16″>:D” width=”16″ height=”16″>
