Her art accomplishes this by bringing nature, divinity, and imagination to centre-stage, ultimately pulling-off a difficult task.”

Goddy's Cafe – A Combination Of Food With Music!!

Goddy’s Café is a new resto cafe that has emerged in the ever happening Nungambakam area in a complex of Haddows Road. The outlet is done up nicely and looks sporty and elegant. There are some couches to sit upon, a space for jams and open mic arena. It is believed that it will soon be a music cum food cafe with music being belted out by various bands in the evening hours. We decided to go to the place, which was recommended by my son, on the occasion of mother’s day.The ambience of the café is as good as anything, adding on, the combo of music and food is just as splendid as it sounds! exciting! Another defining feature of this café is the varities and the options that it provides to its customers. It was really a hard time to pick the items from a large mix. It basically provides us with three categories, Starters, Main-course and the desserts.We handpicked the following respectively,For Starters,Jughead says… Garlic bread:The unorthodox garlic bread. The more creative and funnier the name, the tastier it tastes. It has a spongy and a crumbled base, topped off with bell pepper and a generous helping of parmesan. It is one of their signature dishes and is a must-try starter.Thy Fries:This is the mammoth-sized fries, which consists of Mediterranean piri-piri, Piri-Piri, Honeyglaze and Hazelnut fries, with a range of dips. These fries are the best in town and is a stomach-filling starter. Each of the four was so tasty that we were left licking our fingers.Cheesy Bread Pockets:These are cup-shaped baked breads filled with cheese and veggies. These bread pockets are mouth-watering when served and are hard to resist. With loaded cheese, it gives a melting look when cut. These pockets are an ideal starter for everyone.For Main Course,Lasagna Exotica:The love for lasagne never drops. In this veg. compilation of a creamy layer of cheese and exotic vegetables baked to delight your palate.Pesto Besto:In the pastas section, this seemed to impressed the most. It is the perfect combination of spice and can set your tongue rolling and topped with a healthy dose of parmesan. Along with it, comes breads which is a heavenly combination and as well as a top pick.For Desserts,The desserts are something, that I always crave for, the café had so so many varieties of mocktails, juices, mojitos, monster shakes, hot chocolates and waffles. We ordered ourselves the following,Blue Hawaiian:The perfect blend of a summer mock tail, which includes the likes of pineapple juice and blue coracao! This does give a relaxing feeling once it slurps down your throat, giving a magnificent feeling.Flamingo:The red-sweet devil of the town is here. This provides us a striking combination of Strawberry, Pineapple, Watermelon and Orange for a refreshing ride.Master Cleanse:These cleanse juices, are the most, healthy ones with real fruit pulp and it includes the pulps of carrot, beet, orange, apple and lemon to make you feel light as air. It also improves your mood! When nature enters you.So Ran the Berry:The king of monster shakes, this has become my instant favourite, the looks of this monster makes you drool all the way until sipped. This basically is a cranberry and blueberry shake, with the topping of whipped cream and sugar-sprinkles, it also has Cadbury gems embedded on the whipped cream. This one’s a must-try.Blue Lagoon:The all-time favourite combination of soda, sugar syrup and blue coracao pulp just got even better! The blue lagoon cannot be replaced and refreshes our mind to the fullest.Oceans Lassi:This is a freak-combo which will bamboozle you. The combination you never would have thought of, raspberries in a lassi. It is so tasty that you will slurp out the last drop of it, just like a kid,Winter is Here… :The best of its name. the most creative of names! I just ordered because of the name, being a big fan of GoT. This is basically waffle with a twist, shaped in bubbles and is known as “Bubble Waffle” it is filled with white chocolate, with vanilla ice cream at its core and filled with whipped cream and sugar-sprinkles. This is a perfect dessert indeed.[wpvideo g1zLZZhA]This is one of the best and the most innovative cafes in Chennai. They serve Allday breakfast and it’s open from morning till night..Rates are bit higher but it’s worth for the best. This is the one that will go the distance, trust me. It is the best spot for hanging out with friends and you can also play board games, sing a song or listen to some stand-up comedy. And, most importantly, the food, which is the best.
