It Started, Quite Simply, Like This...

Mumbai is about energy and creativity, and Madrasi Kaapi House exists to inspire and energize Mumbaikars. Our obsession with great coffee comes from growing up in South Indian families, which has had an irreplaceable coffee culture for generations. We opened our cafe in Thakur Village, Kandivli, our Flagship Store, as homage to the legacy and traditions of Southern India. And we’re based in Mumbai because it’s a city that rewards excellence, which is what we strive for in every coffee we serve.


Build a beautiful hamlet for friends & family where memories are seasoned with the aromas of Coffee, the fragrance of spice from Amma’s kitchen and a heap of love where one can believe that, there exists a Caring society.

About Us...

Follow your Passion and Success will follow, was the Mantra and Nari Shakti, the core strength of Madrasi Kaapi House. Simran Venkat & Smita Alke, both successful Homemakers and Friends from humble backgrounds, wanted to collaborate and accomplish more in life. The idea was enough to ignite the fire in Venkat’s long brewing passion for an Authentic Filter Coffee Station in the Suburbs that lacked the true blue South India touch & feel. An evening over a glass of Drink and thus was born, Madrasi Kaapi House.

Madrasi Kaapi House is the perfect place to blow off a little steam and catch up on a cup of Hot Filter Coffee. This ‘casual yet European style open to sky’ Cafe has everything you need to wrap up your work week & kick off your weekend.


If one would want to re-live the typical South Indian Coffee experience, dip into some homemade authentic delicacies of the interiors of South India then follow your heart to Madrasi Kaapi House, a beautiful little hamlet where the chattering host can be heard from across the counter, in a light hearted conversation.

"If you’re ever in the neighbourhood, definitely visit Madrasi Kaapi House for their filter coffee and delicious food. I haven’t yet come by an item on their menu that I have not liked. Apart from the unquestionably good food and drink, I visit Madrasi Kaapi House as often as I do for the easy friendly vibe the place has. Smita and Simran are very friendly and hospitable, as is their super efficient Javed who makes a mean Iced Coconut Water Kaapi drink…"
