Cafe Bodega at Sunaparanta Centre for the Arts | Altinho, Panjim
Since moving to Panjim in June of 2012, Cafe Bodega & the Sunaparanta Centre for the Arts have become relatively permanent fixtures in my life. Providing a welcome oasis from the rains during my early days in the city as one of the only places to serve quality coffee before quality coffee shops became abundant in Goa. The prize destination at the end of a long day's walk in the sun and the perfect place to take a friend during their first visit to the capital.
I've lost count of the number of times I've walked up the steps from the corner at the Portuguese Consulate to reach the upper Altinho road where Sunaparanta is found. A sense of comfort at the sight of the grand blue house which hosts both gallery and cafe. A hub for the contemporary art lovers of Goa as well as one of the most popular breakfast, brunch & lunch spots in the city.
Owned and operated by chef Vandana Naik, Cafe Bodega's menu is frequently updated, full of healthy, comforting dishes with plenty of options to suit every diet. So whether you're vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, lactose intolerant or a lover of all things meat, wheat & dairy, you won't have any troubles finding something to eat. Plus all of their bread & baked goods are made fresh in-house by Tia Vienne and their selection of desserts are delicious.
