From a College Canteen to a Thriving Cafe

Kasturba Cafe's story began at Gujarat Vidyapith. Hitesh Donga along with six of his friends, started serving food at their college campus canteen. Their "ghar ka khana" like meals, prepared with fresh ingredients, were a huge hit with students.

Inspired by this response, Donga decided to open a cafe that offered healthy, home-style food at affordable prices. Their focus on Gujarati Thalis quickly garnered a loyal following.

The cafe's biggest thali boasts two types of shaak (vegetables), Rotli (flatbread), Navtaad Samosa, Khichdi, Daal (lentil soup), Kadhi (yogurt curry), Chhash (buttermilk drink), Keri no Ras (mango curry, a summer special), Papad (fried lentil wafers), and more. The shaak selection changes daily, so check their WhatsApp channel for the latest menu.
