There’s homemade and there is Om Made. The striking name is probably the first thing you notice about Om Made Cafe. Started as a small affair in Goa, the cafe made it to Bengaluru in October 2013 and has not looked back since.

Be it the breathtaking view of the Bengaluru skyline, or the food that takes you on a mini world tour in your head or the beautiful vintage decor, customers find it difficult to mention any one reason that keeps them going back to it for more.

    “Our candlelight dinners are one of the most romantic experiences in Bengaluru. And it’s the view which contributes a lot to this ethereal experience,” says Archana Kotian, one of the owners of the restaurant.

   “People don’t expect such an ambience in a busy street like the 4th Cross and they love it.” The very reason why, despite being surrounded by colleges, the cafe mostly has a clientele in the 25-35 age group, comprising mostly of expats. The delectable fare on offer ranges from European, French to Italian.

    The menu basically revolves around healthier options with bread being baked in the house and organic coffee being specially sourced from plantations in Chikkamagaluru.

   Quizzed about the most popular items in the menu, Archana mentions the flatbread, a thin crust bread with a variety of sauces and toppings that include Jerra flavoured curd, Ruccula, onion rings, ham and mushroom. It looks similar enough to the pizza to confuse the gastronomically uninitiated but is different enough for regulars to know. The rosemary chicken breast is another item that is a hit with the customers. On the beverages side, the choice to stay away from hard core liquor was a conscious one to attract a niche crowd. However, wine is served and their smoothies and juices are an all-time favourite.

    And for those whose sweet tooth is still not satisfied, choices abound in desserts; from caramel custard to brownies to muffins. As one sits tucking into the food, a glance around will reveal the thought that has gone into the simplistic yet alluring decor. The furniture is antique, hand picked from local markets. On weekends, DJs enthrall the crowds with live music.
