Lets not qualify this as a library cum Eatery. The quality, taste and ambience of the food is not upto the standards. Its wholly a library with choices of snacks to munch while reading your books.

I liked the concept...you can lounge inside this little cafe and read whilst enjoying a sandwich and coffee. We had a Vietnamese drip coffee...which was lovely and a lemongrass tea made with fresh ingredient. Very friendly staff...this place definitely has a good vibe!

Pagdandi - An alternate kaccha rasta (rough path or minor road), unpaved, less taken, more fulfilling. (In Marathi: Payvaat) A Yellow shutter on the slopes of rolling hills of Baner, Pune belongs to a "Cupboard under the stairs" book store cafe. This is where Kipling jostles for space with piping hot kulhad chai and Sweet frosty cupcakes provide a fitting accompaniment to Doyle. Pagdandi is a concept store, promoting conscious yet alternate lifestyle choices. The store provides multiple services under one roof. It provides a wide collection of book with a focus on independent publishers, both for rental and purchase in a cafe environment. Healthy frozen yoghurt with wholesome sandwiches, fresh juices and shakes will be served along with piping hot fresh masala chai and tantalizing cupcakes. A gallery wall allows budding artists and photographers to display their work for a nominal fee. Travel services and water bottle refills can also be availed under the same roof. The store provides bench seating, low mattress seating as well as table chairs to suit the customer's mood and comfort. The idea is to create an interactive, creative and open space where one can relax and ideate over the multiple facets of life yet unexplored, be encouraged to utilize the maximum individual potential. We also host events and workshops in tune with our philosophies.
