The cafe is set in a lush & spacious garden in Vagator village. A flowering vine covered pergola houses the main seating area. The furniture is modern rustic and the decor is simple and clean.
Soft muted colours along with cement rendered floors keep with the rustic theme throughout the cafe. The music in the cafe is eclectic and mellow, to not compete with the sounds of the birds buzzing around the garden throughout the day.
Over all, Puttu Cafe has a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere, a place to chill. Guests are encouraged to read the paper while enjoying a cappucino and freshly baked muffin, or catch up with friends over brunch, fuel up before a relaxing day at the beach or unwind and enjoy refreshing drinks & heart warming food.
The cafe is within walking distance from beaches, clubs and tourist attractions.
The concept is sharing simple modern rustic healthy flavours along with great coffee and delicious home made patisseries.
Dishes such as poached eggs on Avocado toast, Cinnamon & Vanilla bean French toast, American style fluffy pancakes with imported Canadian Maple syrup, healthy smoothie bowls along with a variety of protein packed chia pots are a few of the items that can be seen on the daily changing menu.
Although Puttu Cafe offers breakfast staples in meat such as Bacon and Eggs, the menu has several vegetarian and vegan options.
Puttu Cafe is owned and run by Lee Elton, a Newfoundlander living in India for quite sometime. She started cooking years ago, mostly out of necessity and is now the head cook at the cafe.
Lee is from Newfoundland, Canada, where fresh meat and fish are abundant; and, vegetarians as she is, were few and far between. She found it challenging to find food that appealed to her and became passionate about cooking while exploring more diverse and interesting fare. Lee further went on to pursue fine dining restaurant managament, and, food and wine pairing; which has now, given her the confidence to start her own cafe in Goa.
