Whether you're a fan of relaxing brunches, fancy squeezing a quick snack in between your work or just love a late afternoon coffee, Goan cafes have all your moods covered! Given all the options at hand, finding a cup of coffee ain't really a task in Goa but finding the perfect cuppa which ain't anything less than perfect, surely is.

To make up for this lack, Goa has churned out some really cutesy yet ahhhmazing coffee bars in the recent times and joining this snowballing bandwagon, is Babka in Anjuna. The vibrancy of this European-like cafe coupled with the laid back Goan air, has made it our go-to spot for a cup of joe and it is indeed a gem, which we're pocketing!

What's Good?

With colourful murals, flowery pots and a whole lot of black framings in the interiors, Babka is brimming with aesthetics and is definitely amping up our Instagram feed. Once you take a seat inside, you'll try to find reasons to stay a little longer.

Equipped with free WiFi, a kick-ass coffee menu along with diverse breakfast options and sumptuous desserts, Babka knows how to allure foodies into their space. Once you see what they whip up and serve on your table, you'll instantly be drooling like a baby!

If you're battling a hangover from the previous night and need a fresh start or if you just wanna begin your day with a tummy full of wholesome breakfast, Babka will have you smiling.

They make everything from scratch and only the freshest of ingredients are used in their kitchen, which sets them apart from the generic shacks and coffee joints around. Although a lil' heavy on the pockets, they're even heavier on the taste and the quantity they serve so it's all worth every dough you spend here.

For your rumbling tummy, go for their quiches, croissants and puffs and wash it all down with their selection of hot and cold brews. We personally loved the Vietnamese variant but if you aren't much of a coffee person, you can check out their smoothies too!

With their wide-ranging offerings, come here for a meal and we're sure you'll be leaving with a lot more than you expected. Perfect for a first date and even weekday hangouts, Babka has our hearts!
