Downtown's royal blue and teak theme whisks you away from the maddening Bessie beach road and the little book rack makes it worthwhile to hang around. Sit by the large windows on comfortable teak chairs and order a fresh fruit shake or smoothie. Lamentably, the coffee is not too great and there is no WiFi.
Fun little cafes on every nook of Chennai has many fans, including posse of students and large number of foodies, who like to hang out at the chilled corners and sip on their delicious brews. It’s not much hard to laze around all day pouring over the latest bestseller while nibbling on some delectable food that comes through their kitchens. Although the entire city is crammed with some fabulous trendy cafes, Besant Nagar has become quite a magnet for the local trendsetters due to its awesome collection of gastronomy. Out of all the places we have a special fondness for ‘Downtown Café’, which is a popular and hip spot to hang out for the party set. The café is a never-ending hub of lively conversations, music, food and tranquillity, an ideal place for friends to catch up.
Food maybe a huge factor in making the place a hit but its stunning ambience also plays a big role in its popularity. Downtown Café has an exceptional charm that winds around the heart with its promise of warmth and ease. This quiet corner of peace is thriving with a casual ambience that seems to attract loads of punters every day. Fashioned in a warm, earthy and modern manner, Downtown Café is perfect for get-togethers and even for some alone time with your book. Interiors are created on the contemporary side with heavy usage of dark wooden tones to infuse some homely comfy feel to the scene. The café is split onto two levels so there is plenty of space to sit around even if you are accompanied with a large group of friends.
Downtown Café carries a predictable menu of Continental and Italian fare that manages to hit the spot just right with its spectacular range of shakes and burgers. The café is affordable in bargain too which is a huge plus. The chef prepares a delicious array of beverages to go with the savoury tit-bits. Start with shrimp basket, stir fried sausage, potato balls, fish finger, crostini, orly prawn, BBQ chicken wings, spring rolls and move on with, burgers, sandwiches, pastas, pizza, crepe, steaks, bakes and lasagne. They do all-day breakfast too for those who like to start their day a little early. Round it off with an assortments of pastries, stuffed crepes and ice-creams, before heading home satisfied.
