NARAYANAPURA ROAD:“The nuns make the buns!” chuckles Stanley as he explains where all the items on the menu come from. Hill Station Cafe’s owner, Stanley, also brings to you his family’s special recipes and his American sense of humor. Stanley and his wife came to Kothanur from Kansas way back in 2003. The reason why they did so is heartwarming, just like the smell of the freshly baked goods that lingers around Hill Station Cafe. They came to help a few disadvantaged kids and stayed back for good.
Apart from the buns used for the sandwiches, that are made by the nuns at a near by convent, everything else served at Hill Station Cafe is made in the house. Right from the cookies to the brownies and to the cinnamon rolls, everything is freshly baked to perfection, batch by batch. In-house smoked chicken is used for the frequently ordered smoked chicken barbecue sandwiches. The tuna sandwich is also popular among the students who frequently visit the place.
Hill Station is the perfect escape for those who want to steer clear of Bengaluru’s busy, buzzing lifestyle.
With walls decorated with framed, scenic pictures of hill stations, murals and the wooden floorboards, this coffee shop will keep you engaged as you ask for another plate of nachos and tangy salsa.
If the salsa starts to burn your taste buds, choose from the colorful array of flavors to add to your Italian Soda. Not too much into flavored sodas? Then try out the variety of coffees and shakes they offer.
Just look up and you will see the whole menu written out in colorful chalk. There is also a garden seating arrangement outside for the nature lover in you. Every aspect of this earthy cafe is pleasing and makes you want to keep coming back.
The Hill Station team always has a ready smile and is attentive and chatty if you are so inclined. More importantly, they always check to see if you are enjoying your order.
Stanley, having worked in busy restaurants in the past, chooses to keep his humble coffee shop laid back. After all, that’s the charm Hill Station has.
