Blue Planet Cafe | Agonda

Set in the middle of a dense forest in the hills, with spectacular views of the valley and greenery as far as the eye can see; Blue Planet Cafe is one of South Goa’s best-kept secrets.

A quaint, somewhat tilted building located right next to a yoga and wellness retreat, getting there is an adventure in itself. A narrow road in the woods leads you to this lovely cafe in Agonda – you have to pass a playful brook on your way. Needless to say, thanks to its obscure location and quirky character, Blue Planet is not exactly famous – we too, heard about it only through word of mouth. But the long, bumpy ride was definitely worth it, for what awaited us at its end was a beautiful, ‘ethical’ meal enjoyed in a tranquil ambience.

The menu is refreshingly creative and catering to vegetarian and vegan gourmands. We tried the Grilled Tofu Steak, which was a lovely assemblage of soft, golden fried tofu served with peanut sauce, organic boiled sweet potato, guacamole and gluten-free Millet bread. This scrumptious dish was washed down with a glass of creamy avocado dark chocolate shake – we could literally go back to this place only to drink another glass of that!
