You would want to settle in there with the type of ambiance put up. Lanterns done up like kettles, welcoming staff, artsy kind of crowd. a mysterious kind of peace. Don't want to experiment? Try their Irish Coffee with the maska bun. Another point i couldn't not mention was that despite the open air ambiance, they've done good by putting up sockets so that you could plug in all your devices. For the kind of the crowd, the ambiance, the staff their prices are definitely fair and the surely VFM.
Prithvi cafe is the place for everyone. Wanna be actors, established play writers, Shashi kapoor if u r lucky enuf, college students pretending to complete their assignments, young old and the guy with long beard who plays the flute. Personally, play or no play, prithvi cafe is the best place for me to catch up with friends after office or over the weekend for a chai or chat. The place has the best tea - i really wonder how they make it the same everytime, anyways - this place has chats, paav bhaji, coffee, soft drinks and THE CHAI for people like us who live to drink tea. Its light on the pocket, the ambiance is cool and people make this place the place it is. You will find all kind of people as I referred in my opening. Cheers
