With so many of the younger generation hooking up at the drop of a hat, there’s always a dearth of opportunities to “get to know each other” on a physical and emotional level. What we really need is a good restaurant/cafe with pleasant romantic music playing in the background and the kind of lighting that camouflages your actions and “respects your privacy”.
Moreover, the singles too are finding it difficult to spend some quality time alone in a soothing atmosphere. If you’re looking for all these and much more, ‘The Gallery’ is the right kind of place to invest your time and money in.
WHERE CAN YOU AND WHY SHOULD YOU FIND IT?
Nestled comfortably in the prime area of Siripuram, opposite HSBC, in the City of Destiny aka Visakhapatnam, this place has an aura about it that draws people like magnets. There are various reasons for this being the case:
A HEAVENLY HAVEN FOR BOOKWORMS
If you’re a bookworm and an introvert, your idea of relaxation would most probably involve sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee with a book of your choice nestled in your lap.
The Gallery provides a conducive atmosphere that makes your pastime hobby even more addictive! It provides high-backed, classy coffee shaped wooden chairs with a sassy wooden table running along the length of the walls and a collage of various small sized photo frames depicting just about anything and everything from landscape, the medieval period, travel, people! If nothing, you could just stare at them in admiration all day long!
A ROMANTIC NEST FOR THE LOVE BIRDS
A striking feature of this cafe that makes it stands out from its competitors is the elegant and subtly romantic air it brings to the place. If you want to have a tete-a-tete conversation with your partner/crush or spark a fire of romance in him/her, take them to this place and order “Rocky Overload”, a dessert that’s in a class by itself.
Freshly baked waffle with nutella spread and chocolate scoops dripping with hot chocolate fudge, topped by choco-chips and dry fruits, this dish will DEFINITELY melt your partner’s heart and spike up their libido by leaps and bounds! After all, a way to a lover’s heart is through their stomach! With “Closer”, by Chainsmokers, playing in the background, surely there would be would love and “other things” in the air. ;)
A GALA OF GAMES FOR BUDDIES!
‘The Gallery’ comes with an assortment of indoor games for you. Imagine a classic game of chess with your buddy over a cup of fresh hot coffee! The caffeine would surely help galvanize your gray cells. There is also a motley of other games like UNO, snakes n ladders, crosswords, and puzzles.
TITILLATINGLY TASTY DESSERTS!
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, then you must definitely try the freshly baked and CARAMELIZED WAFFLES served here. There are a whole lot of new kinds of desserts with these crispy waffles as their main ingredient.
FANTASTIC PLACE FOR THE FITNESS FREAKS
Good news for all those people out there who are slogging along on their treadmills and trying to shed those extra kilos. The cafe has got a variety of tasty snacks and drinks that’ll conform to even the most calorie-conscious of people.
Green tea, Black Tea, White Tea, Yellow Tea, Assam tea, Kashmiri Chai, Herbal Tea, Darjeeling Tea…What not! You’ll find all kinds, colors, and blends of teas here, and they are a sight to look at! Freshly served in a ceramic teapot with a saucer and cup, they give you the feeling of sitting in a countryside cottage in London. *SIGH*
