Cafe Yell is a cute little cafe right at the center of the Defence Colony market. The place is adorned with little trinkets associated with sewing such as threads, sewing machine, blocks for printing, etc., since the owners of the cafe also own a clothing brand named Yell.We started off with the Minestrone Soup, which was thick and flavorsome, with lots of vegetables such as zucchini, broccoli and bell peppers and small pieces of pasta as well. The soup was served with nicely toasted bread rubbed with garlic butter.Next, we had the Chicken Caesar Salad which consisted of crisp iceberg lettuce, juicy pieces of nicely flavored tender chicken breast, black olives and flavorsome sundried tomatoes, tossed in a creamy and robust homemade Caesar dressing, finished with crunchy croutons for crunch and a nice shaving of parmesan cheese.
The Garlic Paprika Chicken Skewers was a lovely dish, something we would definitely go back for. It consisted of juicy chicken chunks coated with a spicy paprika marinade and grilled to perfection, and skewered along with grilled bell peppers and onions. The dish was served with a nicely dressed side salad and a super spicy sauce which we loved.For mains, we went with the Grilled Chicken with wild mushroom sauce. The chicken breast was juicy and moist and the mushroom sauce was tasty, but just a tad heavy on salt. The sautéed vegetables and mashed potatoes served alongside were nicely made.
Along with our meal, we had Fresh Lime Soda and a thick, creamy and delicious Walnut Brownie Shake which had crumbled chocolate brownie, chocolate sauce and finely chopped walnuts for crunch.
We ended the meal with their signature Salted Caramel Cheesecake, which has to be one of the best cheesecakes we’ve had lately. The biscuit base at the bottom was thin and crispy, the cheesecake was airy and creamy, and didn’t feel heavy at all, and the delicious salted caramel sauce on the top was absolute perfection. A must have dessert here.A shout-out to the servers as well- they were efficient and really courteous, especially Mr. Rajan took great care of us. This place can definitely be tried the next time you’re in the area.
