Britannia Cafe

Ballard Estate in Mumbai has this wonderful Irani cafe. The high ceilings keep the place cool even when the outside is blindingly hot. Good is a mild adjective for the food, as you can tell by the fact that the place is never empty.

 

This was taken at 2:30 in the afternoon, immediately after the rush hour.

 

Why do Irani places always have mirrors? I'm not complaining; mirrors are a photographer's best friend.
