After a successful chain of cafes all over Indian, in cities like Pune, Mumbai, Goa and Delhi among others, Buddy’s Espresso stepped into Eastern India with their first outlet in Calcutta. With ambitions already to expand further in the region, the cafe brings innovative continental food at a reasonable price. Spread over 1,300sq ft, the 52-seater cafe on Southern Avenue is pretty and provide you with a lot of Instragrammable photo options.

“From the start, the aim has been to provide the regular crowd with good and innovative food at an affordable range. Thus, people would feel comfortable to come every day to spend some quality time here,” said Apurv Chokhani, who’s bringing the brand to Eastern India. With some really innovative items on the menu, t2 was very curious to go through it!
