Hyderabad is known to be a foodie paradise. But not many places offer food in a unique ambiance. Coco Cafe, located in quaint Sainathpuram in Secunderabad, is one place you must check out if you want a different eating experience. The huge draw in this place happens to be the two-year-old pet Macau of the owners, which sits at the restaurant. And no, it does not sit in a cage. It moves around freely and spends time with customers. Yes, you read that one right.
From calling out the names of the waiters to yelling out for food to spending some ‘quality’ time with the guests at the restaurant, Coco is also game for pictures with guests and poses happily for them. The owners R Akhil and Akhileshwar Reddy, who happened to be intermediate classmates, started the restaurant after their pet and passion. The duo believes that spending time in nature boosts one’s moods and helps in mental calm.
Though they had plans since their college days, they decided on the Coco Cafe theme once they completed their graduation. The cafe was opened in 2019 and is quite popular with youngsters and families alike. Coco Cafe also has games, board games, books and is considered to be a perfect option for birthday parties.
While both the owners swear by their cappuccino, one can also have pasta, cold sandwiches, and milkshakes while here. They also have yum desserts, burritos, and sizzlers. Sizzling chocolate brownie is one of their best-sellers. Soon, the owner duo plan to add rumali roti and grilled chicken to their menu.
Though, like all small restaurants, Coco Cafe was hard hit by the pandemic, things look optimistic for the place as the crowds seem to be returning.
