I wanted to have a cup of coffee and some light snack before exploring the busy market in Brigade Road. When I looked around in search of it, I saw a couple of places and one of them was Hatti Kaapi.
Hatti Kaapi is a popular chain that serves a variety of filter coffee, tea, and snacks. I had earlier visited a few outlets of this chain so I was quite familiar with the brand.
I ordered a Bella (jaggery) coffee, a special coffee, and mini Idli.
Bella coffee was good in taste! It was neither too strong nor very mild. A perfect balance of milk, sugar, and coffee liquor. I felt refreshed after having it.
The special coffee was although good in taste that was similar to the taste of Bella coffee but I didn’t find anything special in it to call it as “special coffee”. What I noticed was that the “special coffee” was a bit on the milder side with perhaps more milk in it.
Now, comes the mini Idli, which is the main highlight of my visit to Hatti Kaapi. They served us about 6-7 tiny Idlis dipped in delicious sambhar. It’s not that the taste was totally out-of-the-world but definitely I didn’t expect this tasty South Indian snack at a coffee shop. It was really good in taste. The small size Idlis looked yummy!
It’s a pocket-friendly chain and a medium sized cup of special or jaggery coffee costs just Rs. 50. The range starts at Rs. 30. for a small cup. They have multiple joints in Bangalore so it’s easy to locate a nearby joint.
They are quick in service and the staff is courteous. But there is no seating available at Hatti Kaapi. So, it isn’t a place to sit and relax while having coffee. I didn’t mind this because I was in hurry and just wanted to have something quickly.
