Crepestan, Jodhpur Park, Kolkata - A cosy room decorated with tiny light bulbs on glowing pipes, board games here and there with classic rock ballads, bright coloured walls make it a beautiful place to hang out.

Marbella's, Hindustan Park, Kolkata - Straight out of Europe, this quaint little cafe makes you feel good from the minute you step in.

The Daily, Desapriya Park, Kolkata - Which one is the best part of this cafe?
