Bloom & Brew, the popular cafe from Mumbai, has a pet-friendly and inclusive branch in Assagao. The Balinese-style cafe offers low seating as well as comfortable chairs. With soft sand as your floor, every table and corner here sees a different story unfold. The place is perfect for relaxed conversations and hosts lively jam sessions and drag shows on some nights. We recommend the Brekky Lasagne on their all-day breakfast menu. And if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your diet, give their protein brownie or grandma’s guilt-free banana bread a shot.

Kefi is a café and bistro in the middle of a lush green, sun-lit garden in Anjuna. With open-air seating and lots of natural light, the place has a breezy, laid-back vibe. You’ll walk into the place to hear Greek music playing in the background, adding more charm to the ambiance. The place serves authentic Lebanese cuisine, and we mean it. Apart from breakfast, we recommend you try their signature carrot soup or Shorba Adas – both bestsellers for all the right reasons. The place was founded by Mr. Tony from Lebanon, and connoisseurs of Lebanese cuisine consider Kefi the best breakfast place in North Goa.
