A relaxed afternoon and evening tea at Amethyst Cafe
In 2000, Amethyst opened its doors for the very first time at the century-old Sundar Mahal in Gopalapuram. A decade later, Amethyst moved on to a new restoration project, this time to a granary warehouse space on Whites Road, Royapettah. Creating a new space for Amethyst’s worlds within; a larger canvas to enjoy. The old building has been transformed into an idyllic retreat in the heart of the city. A cobbled path winds through a lush garden, leading to the sprawling veranda of the Wild Garden Café. Amethyst is a dynamic space – with constantly shifting pieces of antique furniture and art and a verdant garden. It is more than a boutique or cafe; it is an experience. Bloom, the flower shop, sunlight streams through the skylights into the luxurious boutique upstairs, The Folly, set in the midst of the beautiful lush green gardens of Amethyst is a space for exhibitions, art shows, book readings, film screenings and more. Well-executed European-flavoured dishes range over quiches, pastas, sandwiches, crepes, creative salads, all-day breakfasts and afternoon teas. Do have tea!
