Ever since I got to know Seed Snehal, I had always wanted to visit his Sapney Farms and his KofiBar cafe. Yesterday, I did both during our visit to Pondy. At KofiBar, we had the highly recommended Cold Coffee, which this place has become famous for. Here are some pics of the place.
The front facade of the cafe. Notice how the door has been converted into a social notice board.
The place is made up of my favorite materials, granite pillars and coconut keeths.
Notice the menu boards. The Cold Cofee is such a speciality that it earned itself a whole board for itself.
We particularly loved the pebbles. Walking on them was like getting free foot massage. Definitely getting these pebbles for our farm too.
Shot these photos on the way to Lavasa, the newly created hill city. Its about an hour away from Pune. The drive was absolutely beautiful. Found an amazing dam with water filled till the brim. — at Lavasa Hill City.
Am a big fan of garden benches. Found these two beautiful ones at the Chail Palace in Himachal Pradesh.
What a brilliant idea! As we were driving from Shimla to Chail, we had to cross a bridge over a small river. The one thing that caught our attention were a few tables laid out in the middle of the river. It turned out that a small time hotelier could not afford to get land to build a restaurant on the road side and instead chose the river to be his spot. The water was ice-cold but super refreshing during the afternoon. The biggest USP was the unique experience of dining on the river. He was doing wonderful business. Hats off to the guy.
I particularly loved this thatched roof setup. Most people preferred to bask in the sunlight though.
These guys were enjoying their whisky and truly chilling out.

Awesome weather. Picturesque views. Stunning terrain. Head-spinning curvy roads. And a great car. A combination that any motorhead would kill for. Over two days, I had a chance to drive the soon-to-be-launched Skoda Octavia from Chandigarh to Chail via Shimla and back. Here’s a photo album from the trip with an emphasis on the car. A detailed travelogue on the journey will soon follow. — in Chail, Himachal Pradesh.
