A place that breathes Royal Enfield’s heritage

Flying Flea motorcycle in Garage Cafe

If you are a diehard Royal Enfield aficionado, and Goa is your top choice for a vacation, then there is a must-visit destination in your schedule.

Located on the banks of the Baga river in Arpora, Royal Enfield’s Garage Cafe is not just the normal showroom or service station, which we see across the country. This venue houses a motorcycle museum, exhibition area, bike customisation area,  cafe and service bay, all celebrating the legacy and spirit of the RE badge.

The most attractive part of the Garage Cafe is its museum, which will get visitors to fall in love with Royal Enfield bikes even more. This houses a multifunctional gallery and a mini museum that visibly speaks of the past and present of Royal Enfield bikes. From the 1939 Flying Flea motorcycle, to the original 1963 Continental GT cafe racer and 1965 MK-2 750 cc Interceptor, all other replicas are also there to see. Royal Enfield’s rich history is set up on a half-acre plot.

The strategic initiatives of the cafe are carried out by Arvind Iyer, who wanted the place to not just suit Royal Enfield-lovers, but also the curious lot. “The cafe is designed using laterite, which is abundant across Goa. We have made this a part of our design philosophy,” he says.

The place also has a cafe. Jamshed Madon, the Chief Food Curator at the Garage Café, has something to offer every visitor. The golden chrome vinyl jukebox, made from the ground up in the UK, is the show stealer at the cafe. This allows visitors to play their choice of music, which is the most engaging part of this cafe.

Charan, a regular visitor at the cafe, says, “We love to hang out here, as it gives a proud feeling of owning an Enfield.”
