Sip, bite or just chill at this Howrah Cafe
Is there a cafe where you can sit and read a book or have a hearty adda with friends without feeling obligated to order anything to eat or drink? We have found one, in Shibpur, Howrah!
It’s called Cafe by the Lane, where from Wednesday to Friday, you are free to sit and spend time from 3.30pm to 5.30pm, without the guilt of not ordering food. You might be tempted to order though, as the kitchen serves up quite a mouthful.
If you bring an under-privileged person to the cafe for a treat, the beverage for him/her would be on the house.
“I always believed I would run a cafe that could give something back to society. There are many Chinese and Mughlai eateries around, so we thought of introducing Continental cuisine,” said owner Armit Mukherjee.
