Cafes and Pizzas

Two fabulous cafes in Koregaon Park, Pune are Zen Cafe and One O Eight Lifestyle Cafe. Zen Cafe is a hidden jewel in the lane adjoining Starbucks. It’s a relatively new place compared to One O Eight Lifestyle Cafe. One O Eight Lifestyle Cafe, is very visible and vibrant café in Lane 5. Both cafes are known for their scintillating organic food especially my favorite blends of organic tea. 

Zen Cafe is right next to my favorite pizza place, 1441 Pizzeria. 1441 Pizzeria crowing glory is its make your own choice pizza which reminds me of my favorite pizza joint in Ann Arbor.
