Visiting a cafe sometimes is a good recreation. Though I’m no coffee snob but I do like latte and if I don’t find one I tend to move on. Few days back I popped into a café just next to South City College named “033 Café”. One of the owner greeted me in a friendly manner, gave me some personal attention and showed me to a table. There were also others sitting around. The music was the kind of stuff I like to listen to. The whole vibe was a lot more on my level.
The main eye catching thing which I found over there is their idea of setting up the décor of the wall in a garage with amazing white wallpapers which add on contrast to the colourful and a totally different kind of a table setup. In this café you will find one more special thing which acts like cherry on the cake is their lights. The owners have invested their time to create a new kind of light setup using pipes and giving a shape to it. They didn’t use any kind of fancy lampshades or light holders but what they did is really amazing.
While I was there I managed to have some words with one of the owner of the café Mr.Ranajit Dey who is a very humble, down to earth and a young owner. According to him , the reason behind keeping “033 Café” as a name was that they wanted to connect with the people as we all know the calling code of West Bengal is “033”. They tried to create a communication essence with the people who would step in. There is a trio pillar that gave birth to this café : 1) Mr.Bishan Mukherjee who is a IIM passed out CEO of a baby food company named SINCOM, 2) Miss Madhurima Saha who is a designer and 3) Mr.Ranajit Dey who is a management degree holder. They are friends before business partners. These three executed such a concept of making up a café which came into action since last year and started from this year July 25th . They launched their own brand on shakes which is SHAKESPURE. They have new kind of menu card which looks exactly like a telephone diary which connects with the name of the café and it is very easy to understand which guides you straight to the page of the menu which you’re seeking off.
The young man Mr.Soumalya Banik is the Executive Chief of this café. He is the man behind each and every new innovation and improvisation on the food dishes. They serve such fine dishes and shakes at a very pocket friendly amount which is really a hard thing to find in area like that. The special dishes of this café are 1) Fried Bang Bang Chickhen 2) Barbeque Wings 3) Deconstructed Cheese Cake 4) Mushroom Cappuccino 5) Wild Fungus Soup and 6) Black Havana.
- PUJA SPECIAL
Mr.Ranajit said that they are thinking of a new range of dishes with different varieties in this puja and they are hoping that the cafe will remain open whole night even in the puja days. Usually they are open from morning 8 a.m. – 1 a.m. at night.
He added one more thing in the conversation specially for the people who resides in North Kolkata. They are now serving the people in the South Kolkata, soon they will be opening up their another outlet in Saltlake area!
