Sometimes, the craving for a little ‘me’ time starts distracting you from your daily routine so much so that you have no choice but to give in. So, what do you do when you are really longing for some alone time? I’m a person who knows no better place than home but sometimes, I also get the feeling of going to another place (where no one knows me, not even the place :P) and spending some long and good time alone! One such place is The Willow Cafe!
I was travelling to Chandigarh for a short weekend visit when I came across this quaint little cafe with checked white doors, calling me in. It is located at a small corner of Sector 10 in Chandigarh and is spread over two floors. The manager greeted me with a smile and offered me a seat in a pretty little corner of the area. However, I decided to go down to the lower level and have a seat there. The lower level has a bigger area and lots of floral decor to offer. They also have an outdoor seating but I decided to sit inside since I was in no mood to beat the heat in the sunny afternoon. They have used pastel palette for their interiors; something that I already have a weakness for. I had a nice and comfy sofa all by myself with light music playing in the background. The walls are decorated with lots of food quotes, paintings and pretty bone china plates as well. This is a place where you could go, on a breezy winter afternoon for a brunch or in the evening to catch up with some friends on a cup of coffee and some other continental dishes. You could also spend some time alone, reading a book, working on your laptops, or writing a blog (like I would do). *wink* I highly recommend visitng this place for an English breakfast as well.
Coming to the food part of the feature, they offer both north Indian and continental food. We ordered for some spaghetti and ravioli and I was quite impressed with the food. With an English feel like ambience inside, I doubt you would want to order any Indian food though. (personal thought, go ahead and order if you feel like). They have some nice mocktails (recommended – the English Willow) which you should definitely try as well.
I had zero planning going on with the outfit I’m wearing in here. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon, calling for an easy breezy dress which I found in this lavender cut shoulder piece from Koovs. I’m wearing a bare face with subtle lined eyes and a nude lipstick here. To add to the bohemian touch, I chose to wear one of my favorite earrings which I had bought for dirt cheap price from the streets of Mcleodganj. A pair of tie-up beige flats from Street Style Store finished out my easy and relaxed kinda-bohemian look perfectly. A messy hair-do suited my lazy mood fine as well. *wink*
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Do tell me what are your favourite eating joints in Chandigarh as I would love to explore them the next time I’m there. If you want me to change/add somethings of these follow me around posts, do not forget to comment below to let me know as well!
