Cuppa Joe in Bandra might be small but it’s ready to pack a punch! Samreen Samad tells you more about it and the delicious Butter Beer

If you’re passing by Bandra’s most happening street, Carter Road, it’s not hard to miss Cuppa Joe. Located next to Yogurt Bay, this tiny coffee shop comes across as really brave to have entered not only the same vicinity but also the same building as the well established (and much bigger!) coffee chains, Café Coffee Day and Costa Coffee.

We entered to find out what makes Cuppa Joe different and whether it will survive the heavy weights. And, ladies and gentlemen... we have a winner!

This tiny coffee shop is not that tiny, so don’t let the ground level misguide you. Like Pandora’s Box, the café will surprise you with treasures hidden on the lower level, including plush white sofa sets.

Since we visited them on a hot afternoon, we skipped the hot beverages, despite them being tempting, and opted for a chilled Butter Beer (`130) and a Snow Frappe Mocha (`120 for regular). The Butter Beer was refreshing and light; Harry Potter fans should try it to get the feel of Three Broomsticks. On the other hand, the Snow Frappe was filling. The thick frappe blended with ice is available in bubblegum, toffee, cookie and caramel flavours.

We moved on to the Dijon Mustard Chicken Panini (`145), which was filled with chicken, onions, mozzarella and mustard. I enjoyed the Panini and for the price, the serving is sufficient for two people — that is if you’ve gulped down the Snow Frappe before.

Besides regular coffees, espressos, teas and hot chocolates; you can treat yourself to salads, wraps, pasta, paninis, waffles, desserts and an all day breakfast.
The most appealing thing about Cuppa Joe is that everything is under `200. I’m definitely going back to try their mouth-watering Marshmallow Café Mocha (`200) and their luscious Ultimate Red Velvet Cake (`150).
