Long time back, about 3 years ago I met Amin Sheikh in Goa where I was listening to a talk he gave. Impressed I followed him through social media and today finally I could make it to see in person what a great job this...team is doing. Much more than food, the experience, the smile of all the people, the attention and the happiness they spread is blam for every clients soul. I take my hat and thank all the team for such a beautiful cafee, a must place for everyone travelling to Mumbai....and it's close to the airport.More

It seems to me any place with offers its visitors books, should be called special place. Its got a very tasty food (vegetarian as well), real nice coffee, especially cappuccino n of course delicious desserts. If you can't eat very spicy food , you'll be...heard by Sabiya and the dish would be adjusted. I bought an astonishing queen silky dress from Kushboo. However this is the place where people care for people which differs this cafe from thousands others. Strictly recommend. Thank you, Amin and all your big family💞🌿🙏More

This is a unique place in the city. They offer delicious, fresh and high-quality food. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I also got fascinated with the story behind the Café. The owner, Amin Sheikh, was a street children who changed his life. Now...he is changing other street children’s lives by offering them the opportunity to finding a job and to studying. Amin is usually at the café, so is great to have the opportunity to chat with him and discover more about the project “Bombay to Barcelona”. It really worths a visit.More

Worth a trip down to Marol to this quaint but spacious cafe which is beautifully homely with extra helpful and extremely courteous staff. The owners have a very Spanish influence over their food. The chicken lasagne was too good which was washed down with a...Malta orange mojito (non alcoholic). Ended my visit on a sweet note with some yummy churros. All in all, this place is exquisito.More

My mother and I had lunch at the Café today and it was delicious. I had Spaghetti with vegetables and pink sauce and my mother had Pasta alfredo. The sauce is homemade and the vegetables were fresh- it tasted great. Also the Café Bonbon (a...spanish speciality) and the homemade cake is definitely something you should try! Around us where people from all over the World chatting, reading or eating. Amin and his team make everybody feel welcome. The athmosphere is very warm and friendly. We will definitely visit the cafe again.More

The cafe is run by former street kids who were adopted by an orphanage nearby. So that's a good chickensoup-for-the-soul start. But that's not only reason why should visit the place. The food is excellent too. The chefs here are taught by visiting volunteers from...Rome, so the taste is as close to an European cafe as you can get here. Key ingredients are also mostly sourced from Rome, courtesy again some volunteers. The Cafe claims that all ingredients, be it pasta or pizza bases, are all made in-house, just like they do in any European cafes. One may find the place to be slightly pricey than your regular neighbourhood cafe (pasta servings or small pizzas ~Rs 350, juices ~Rs 200) but all this for a good cause and experience. The vibe and ambience of the place is extremely good and friendly. The place doubles as a library where you can read or even donate your books (but make sure to mention why you feel others should read the book you are passing on). There is free Spanish classes every weekend which is open to all. There is a piano where you may try your hands. And a designer corner, where clothes designed by the co-owner are displayed. It's an inspirational story when you come to think of it. A kid who ran away from his home, fights all odds o set up a cafe in which other street kids find a fare and just environment. More power to you Amin.More

Our friends from Bombay introduced us to Amin. They are part of his incredible journey from a five year old boy living on the streets, to writing and printing his story and following his dream by starting this amazing cafe, run to support more children...like Amin. The cafe is a delight, wonderful food, friendly and so very clean. It is a short cab ride from Mumbai airport it is worth the detour to meet Amin and the young people who he teaches a skill for life.More
