Somewhere Else is the newest hang-out in Kochi. The really cool name conjures up so many alternative meanings that its impossible to box the place as just a cafe. “Lets meet up Somewhere Else”, “Lets hang-out Somewhere Else”…..the name extensions are endless and fun too! Somewhere Else aims to be just that….an alternative place to alternative places. The name immediately captures our imagination as we all want to be somewhere else all the time. The chic interiors, coupled with unique branding makes Somewhere Else the ubercool place to be. Somewhere Else celebrates good food by bringing together some house specialities inspired by culinary delights from around the world….be it Italian salads and pasta or a West-African chicken dish. Coffee has two vitues – as the Dutch see it – it is wet and it is warm! We agree with that….Somewhere Else serves wonderful coffee perfectly warm on a wet monsoon day.
Somewhere Else opened its doors on 15th of May and since then they have already brought in some innovative additions. For example, you can now, for the first time in Kochi, enjoy a full English Breakfast (a full Monty as
they call it in England) complete with fresh juice, baked beans, eggs to order, toast, chicken sausages, mashed potatoes, sauted mushrooms, a slice of tomato and hashbrowns and coffee all for Rs. 150/- only. And moreover, the breakfast is available throughout the day…hence called the “all-day breakfast”. They also have a Set Lunch option which is a 3-course lunch with main dishes from around the world and again going for a value price of Rs.150/-. And as if all these were not reasons enough to be Somewhere Else, they also offer free wi-fi and games like Uno, chess and scrabble to keep you entertained when you are with friends and family (em…that is if you are not in the mood to sip some awesome coffee perched up on one of their high-chairs and looking down at Kochi going by Cheruparambath Road and Sahodaran Ayappan Road.). Whether you want to take a walk down the memory lane, contemplate the present, or anticipate your future, Somewhere Else is a cool place to do it….it sort of encourages you to do it.
They could do with better take-away management as in branded take-away boxes and the like. Perhaps a broader range of sandwiches, and burgers would be well accepted too…but again you get some dishes here that you don’t easily find anywhere else. Parking can be an issue on working days. They promise to bring about more innovations soon and we are sure to be there to cover it for you guys.
I think the ladies would agree if I were to say that chocolates, men and coffee are some of the things in this world that are better rich! Hey I can vouch for the gourmet chocolates and the coffee at Somewhere Else….I’ll leave it at that. So people, be Somewhere Else!
Location: Its at Cherumparambath Road. Thats at the left turn after Chinese Garden, Kadavanthra (on your way to vytilla). The building on the left before the optical store, Pixetra.
