This concept takes me back in 2005 when I was pursuing DNIIT from South Ex. We had to prepare a presentation in pairs and I along with my friend Bhavna sat in a cafe and made notes. At that time, we didn’t have android phones I guess and no laptops to carry for work. I remember we brought print-outs and took out relevant information from those. That day made me feel like a busy working woman. And today I am one! Every phase of life has its own charm whether with current facilities or not.
The story in their own words
At Qahwa, they believe in the use of freshly prepared, tasty food with fresh ingredients, fresh spices, fresh herbs and a lot of care. They make it so fresh as most of the doughs are prepared in-house like their hand made pizzas & garlic bread! They serve an all-day breakfast, scrumptious lunch & dinner meals and tons of coffee, tea & other beverage options. Qahwa’s aim is also to serve and promote quality coffee, selectively sourced from south India. The word ‘Qahwa’ is the original name of coffee in Arabic, although they also serve a Qahwa-style Kashmiri Kawa.
How to reach there
