Bodega Cafe | Panjim

Set around a sunny courtyard and serving up some of the best espresso in town

Located within one of Panjim’s best known art galleries, is a well loved café called Bodega. Finding its home in the restored heritage mansion atop Altinho’s hill and catering to frequent patrons of the centre. Off late, however, this café has also developed a clientele all its own. A testimony to just how great a café Bodega really is.GM_Bodega Cafe PanjimChef Vandana Naik is the mastermind behind Bodega. After having spent almost two decades in the Big Apple, New York, where she worked in a variety of restaurants, she has since returned to open her very own café. She now doles out an extensive variety of soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts, having  acquired quite the reputation for them as well.

The café is situated right in the heart of the Sunaparanta Centre for the Arts and cannot be missed. Be it the constantly changing art and decor on the walls of this centre or the different specials every day at the café, things are always interesting at Bodega. If you enjoy solitude for a few hours or less, grab a book or your laptop (they have free Wifi) and head on down to this café. Another great thing you should know about Bodega, and we wish other eat-outs would follow this trend, is that they update their daily menus on their Facebook page everyday. So you can see what they’re serving up that day and make your way accordingly.
