Malgudi House – An Authentic South Indian Tiny Cafe in Vapi

Malgudi House in Vapi (Gujarat) is a nice tiny cafe to hang out/chill with your friends & family members at any time at low prices.

Timings: 8:00 am till 10:00 pm (7 days open). Only once in the last week of the month one day is off.

To reach Malgudi House you have to hire a shared auto for Rs. 10 or book an entire auto for Rs. 40 from Vapi Railway Station (east side) and drop at Gunjan Police Chowki. Malgudi House is 50 meters approx. from Gunjan Police Chowki.

Uday is the owner – born and brought up in Kerala.

The staff is very humble and Mr. Uday welcomes visitors so gently.

Though there are more than 200 products, famous menu items as per Uday at Malgudi House are Garlic Bread, Pudi Dosa, Garlic Dosa, Chocolate Dosa, Sandwiches, Cheese Soupy Noodles, White Pasta, Filter Coffee, Smoothies, and Lassi few of them.

I requested Pudi Dosa (never had before) and regular filter coffee.

Pudi actually is chutney powder sprinkled on top of dosa while it is cooked.

Filter Coffee taste is deeply personal. I’ve tried quite a few cafes and till-date Cafe Madras in Matunga, Mumbai is a personal favorite.

Note: All food preparations at Malgudi House are in Ghee or Butter only. No Oil. And Uday is the master chef at his outlet.

In short, the combination was good and I liked the taste of both. It was worth a visit.

Pudi Dosa cost Rs. 70 and Filter Coffee is Rs. 35 only.

The decor of this tiny cafe is very unique and cool.

Though it is a small cafe still it looks cozy & cute with so many options to fill one’s tummy and make you smile at pocket-friendly prices.

And do not miss to appreciate chalk art by Murtaza – Uday’s friend.

Would love to visit again. Overall it was a great outing. Must visit if you are in Vapi and craving some authentic cuisine from South India.

Malgudi House serves food that is an absolute delight to your taste buds. Kudos to Uday and the team.

I really had a great experience. The menu is unusually interesting. Delicacies that you have never even heard about in Vapi.
