Hidden Gem of The Week: Food for Thought Café

Housed in a vintage bookstore near Flora Fountain, Kitab Khana, this quaintly-simple café is perfect for a rainy day, when all you’re looking for is to get stuck in a new book whilst tucking into a Bombay-style toastie. A steaming cuppa apple tea or melted hot chocolate are always an inviting proposition here too, mellowed by a lively hum of chatter as Food for Thought has amassed something of a cult following over the years!
