Mumbai has got its new space where one can find the calm within the chaos. Located at Bandra, the newest Insta-worthy cafe, Grounded, is now open in the bustling neighbourhood of Bandstand.
As the name suggests, Grounded is simple in nature but holds a lot of value to its customers who can come, converse and share their experiences over their favourite brews, food and desserts.
This complemented by the sea breeze and sounds of the waves creates a tranquil ambience at the cafe.
The brainchild behind this new establishment is India’s youngest entrepreneur in F&B - Yuvika Wadhawan.
Yuvika, fuelled by her passion for food and baking since the age of 7, has curated the menu at Grounded. With the desire to bring uncommon flavours to the plate, she has crafted a delectable dessert menu that is set to swoon anyone who walks in.
The food menu has been designed keeping in mind the cafe’s audience and offers dishes that can be enjoyed throughout the day. On the menu, one will find dishes like Californian Benedict, benedict but with a twist, fresh poached eggs on a croissant with in-house garnish; New York-style B**f Burger, organic veggies, chipotle chilli and marinated patty served in a house made burger bun; and Spiced Chicken Stuffed Buns, Minced chicken in their flavourful sauce, stuffed in homemade buns to name a few.
The food menu is complemented with an extensive coffee menu, made with beans sourced from select estates and different roasts, to offer an immersive coffee experience. The brews offer a unique range of flavours and an unparalleled experience that this neighbour is yet to witness.
Designed with a blend of Greek and Mediterranean influences, the space follows a unique approach. It is accented with a burst of blue color and muted tones. A key feature of the cafe is its signage, which conveys a modern and innovative concept in an eye-catching manner.
Adding to the wonderful aesthetic of the cafe is the terrazzo countertop with its attractive colour and pattern. The glass ceiling floods the space with soft natural sunlight. As the evening draws closer the soft glow from ambient lighting adds a comforting atmosphere to the space making it more welcoming.
