What’s it about?
The swaying boat lends the motion of the waves to your body as you sail towards your destination which is silhouetted in the glow of the setting sun. The motion rocks you into a state of tranquility which is further enhanced by the fresh air, greenery and beauty of Eco Island, where Cafe Ekante is situated. Let me repeat, Kolkata now has a cafe on an island which can be accessed by a free boat ride. With hot beverages and delicious snacks on the menu, I don’t know what could possibly keep a person from going on this adventure.
Setting foot in any other cafe in the city is a matter of stepping off the street and entering through a doorway. But, going to Cafe Ekante is an experience which is separate from the experience of the cafe itself.
Built on an island in the middle of the lake, Cafe Ekante in Eco Park should immediately be put in your winter bucket list. Not every city offers the chance to get on a boat and go to an island in order to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and some snacks while breathing in the serenity of nature.
What to eat?
The fish fry is to die for. So, if you have the taste buds of a Bengali, then you know what you will be eating there. The vegetarian fried snacks are equally delicious. I believe food becomes even more enjoyable when all the other senses are being pampered. And thanks to the crisp and caressing air, natural silence and unique view, all your senses are in for a definite treat at Cafe Ekante.
What to do?
You can choose to sit inside or outside, but, no matter where you go, the water won’t get out of your line of sight. Mostly, the silence, peace and purity of air is what this place has in store for you. The setting of Cafe Ekante emits a soothing power which is unparalleled by any other cafe in the city. The best thing to do in the cafe is breathe, eat, talk, then go outside and take a walk, maybe click a few photos with the best backgrounds ever. It offers you a chance to feel like you are on vacation and this experience is priceless.
