Set up keeping in mind the rural Rajasthani houses in villages, the interiors are well decorated and decked up with handcrafted umbrellas, lehariya, lamps and low sitting chairs. The real rural feels come when you see the walls not painted and designed but covered with the material in which kuccha houses in villages are done, thus keeping the interior cool.

With booming cafe culture, Pink City has got so many hangout cafes to enjoy and relish the moments spent. May it be over a cup of coffee, a proper meal or even a kitty or birthday party – cafes have turned into a get together hub for everyone. But these days, going beyond the food and location, what is being seen is the upcoming and flourishing creativity that comes out when you step into a new cafe.

JB - Lazy Mojo 3

Cafe Lazy Mojo – a bakery cum Italian café in Jaipur opened last year, is one of the most talked about places right now. Besides its quirky name and fine location, what’s drawing Jaipurites to this newbie is its peppy and thoughtfully created ambiance. With a small open area, a common inside sitting and an isolate area for parties – all are separated and well distributed and creatively done. The classy and colorful interiors with the soft peppy music, surely makes you feel a little lazy to relax and refresh.

While you look at the funky design of the menu card and choose your food from the wide variety, you will love the small sweet wait for your food to be served. Why? Because you will find yourself too busy reading the fun quotes on the walls and gazing at the meticulously done interiors, also adding a local touch with walls designed with paintings of Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall Museum and sketches of our freedom fighters.
