They make great coffee and the food is top notch. A third deciding factor in making a café super hit? Its Instagram-worthiness.
Here’s listing 5 cafes in Calcutta I heart clicking pictures at.
MARBELLA’S makes for #Wanderlust
Spain on your mood board? Park yourself at this quaint café on Hindustan Park, painted a refreshing shade of white with carefully curated décor offering pops of colour. Every corner at Marbella’s makes for a perfect Instagram back drop no matter where you’re sat. Bonus point? There’s plenty of natural light in the glass enclosed space for the perfect picture!

ROASTERY COFFEE HOUSE takes us back to #OldCalcutta
Also in Hindustan Park, housed in Calcutta South India Club, this massive space has both indoor and outdoor seating areas. For the perfect picture get yourself a place in the courtyard where white painted garden furniture juxtaposed against yellow and white colonial décor makes it all oh-so-romantic. Definitely a throwback to Calcutta of old!

PICADILLY SQUARE serves us #MinimalistAndHow
Straight lines and unpretentious is a vibe at this popular veggie hangout joint on Sarat Bose Road. Their recent expansion- a glass enclosed outdoor seating area in shades of brown- makes for perfect pictures which spell minimalism as a #Mood
SIENNA vibes #Aesthetic
While Sienna’s Hindustan Park address has been a popular #InstaZone, their new Park Street address is all that wow! A bigger space, this café housed on the first floor has nooks and crannies made interesting with touches like a book case here, a type writer there, or massive wall art. There are even umbrellas in signature Sienna prints suspended from the ceiling. Such a variety, much amaze!

THE DAILY CAFE is #StraightOuttaLA
Everything about this Deshapriya Park café screams West Coast with a mood reminiscent of Los Angeles. From pastel coloured decor to flamingo themed everything, the millennial vibe at The Daily Café is strong. Oh, and there’s even a section with a vertical garden and clear ceiling in place. You won’t need to use that teal filter around The Daily Café!

Book marking this list, remember permission to shoot or click pictures remains at the discretion of the management.
Be kind, and ask for permission should you want to shoot with something bigger than a phone camera! Done up with love, the cafés would be happy to be a part of your pictures. However, asking first means not disturbing other patrons as they go about enjoying their moment there.
Reach out the cafes on their Instagram pages.
That done, get posing and #WerkItGirl
