Prana Cafe at Vaayu | Mandrem
Prana Cafe is a tasteful surf inspired cafe with delicious healthy fare, easy cool ambience, and friendly staff in the Vaayu ‘village’. Found across the road from Mandrem beach, its hipster roots helps break it away from the countless other ‘Jamaica/Hawaii’ beach shacks in the area.
Delicious, light and medium portions. A relatively wide range, made from mostly locally sourced ingredients. Priced fairly and below comparable cafes in Panjim and South Goa.
Allergen friendly options are not easy to identify, but there are options on the menu. Almond and coconut milk based smoothies for emergencies. If you’re allergic to something, the staff don’t necessarily check, so make sure you do. We ordered a seemingly gluten free ‘Spicy Coconut Zaika’ bowls with kingfish and it arrived with batter-fried chunks. Our fault for not checking or specifying.
