We stop at this place thanks to our guide, he knew the boys from this cafe and was a great stop as they make great coffee. So if you’re in Kochi stop here and get your coffee and you will be happy

Qissa Cafe clearly got the memo on international hipster decor and vibe. It looks and feels and smells like any other hipster cafe in the world which could either be deeply comforting or a major turnoff. But the food is genuinely very good - eggs,...More

Somewhere on this planet is a land...where stories are born and reborn with every passing moment. A land where there are trees that will tell you stories that no book can. Where stories wake up in playgrounds every morning and go to sleep with the waves every night. It is a land where stories smell of cinnamon and pepper and coconut... where stories are trapped in fishing nets and yet roam free in every heart. It is a land where stories have no borders and speak every language...and are found in every pair of eyes...happy stories, sad stories...stories of all the yesterdays that went past us and every tomorrow that is waiting to happen. You can call this land a piece of paradise or swargam or jannat. It is where you are the story-teller... and you are also the story. Yes... somewhere on earth is a land called Fort Kochi. It is the land of Qissa, ...Qissa...that Persian word for story..... We all have our Qissas and we are a part of countless Qissas. Come share, find and celebrate Qissas at Qissa ! Where there is 'A Story in every Sip'
