Pondicherry opens its door to Ayesha flagship store and PY café

Pondicherry’s prime location, Mission Street is now a home to a pinteresty café, PY Café. PY Café, is one unwinding space located in Ayesha flagship store and is a perfect spot for gathering and relaxing after an exhausting day. The café is based on the concept of “spread love, be creative and eat well” and the theme, “vintage pastels”. The USP of PY café is their campaign on #spreadlove to spread more good vibes around. The customers are given notepads to write letters to their loved ones and the staff posts the same to the concerned person.

The café greets you with a signboard that reads “Welcome to Our Loud Crazy Fun Place” and motivational, mood lighting quotes painted on wooden boards throughout the space. It also has a wall full of old broken clocks that is inspired from Pondicherry’s tag line “Give time a break”. The menu is a mixture of cuisines, for example, balsamic dressing does not come as a drizzle but is served as tiny little pearls; the cold coffee is carbonated and the burgers are charcoal black. They also have Mediterranean and Asian thalis. They have everything from sandwiches, pasta, rice noodles, and Thai curry, to all day breakfast options, quirky starters, etc. People with a sweet tooth can check out their ragi whole wheat waffle, chocolate mousse, mango pannacotta, and artisanal Italian ice cream.
PY Café has no specific concept other than providing a homely feel to their customers. The idea is to visit the café, engage in great conversation, binge on yummy food, make memories and have a good time. Every piece of furniture here is different and comes in different colours. There’s graffiti on the walls, metal sculptors, quirky lightings and more. Don’t miss the ‘mirror mirror on the wall’ painted opposite the actual bathroom mirror in a reversed script. Climb up to the first floor and you will find one wall filled with mirrors and the other with stenciled quotes in colourful frames. Each third step has a PY number plate like PY-HI-5. Talking about the food, they have tried a similar mumble jumble of cuisines that matches with the concept of the cafe.
This lovely space creation is a result of talented people like Stencil Artist/Graffiti Artist, Shunnal Lingade; Metal Sculptor, Rahul KP; Mechanimal, Nithin Sadhu; layer tape artist, Abhinaya, young architect from Chennai and many others.
