Delicious daily specials, weekly monsoon Sunday brunches, smoked salmon, hearty salads and strong dark espressos, this is one turn off the main Calangute – Mapusa Road you don’t want to miss.
Open year round and occupying an airy outdoor patio, Cafe de Goa is a true gem amidst the otherwise hectic and often over crowded Northern beach belt. Somewhat tucked away from the main drag, this little cafe-cum-grocer which opened in 2012, is the perfect place for a relaxing break whether it be from the high-season heat or the monsoon rains. Not only that but they also tend to fill their menu with all those specialty ingredients you just can’t find on your regular trips to the market. Using them throughout an extensive range of sweet and savory dishes as well as stocking the shelves of their adjacent shop. Here you can find a wide array of local organic produce, select wines, handmade pickles, jams and jellies along with an assortment of artisanal crafts.
Great for an everyday breakfast or lunch date, Cafe de Goa can also be booked for private functions, charity events or seasonal gatherings. The service is both efficient and friendly, the prices justified and the food served fresh and healthy. It’s also obvious that this is a business that is keen to support the local community and constantly reflects a mindfulness in their promotion of a reduce, re-use, recycle philosophy. Committed to leaving the smallest carbon footprint possible in their partnerships and always looking to impart sustainability in their practices. So the next time you’re in the area and in need of a place to fill up, simply look for the tall red tower and you’ll be sure to find something to hit the spot.
