Cha baar served them, she added, some delicious quick bites good to go with tea. “Totally loved the concept of a cute little cafe in a bookstore.”

Pragnya Mishra from Foodie_Pragnya calls it a 360° event which not only had the appraisal of CHABAR but also emphasized on an interactive session to discuss common blogging issues and growth ideas. “The cozy setup, well mannered staff and awesome food complemented the event perfectly,” she added.

Sritam Nayak felt it was a successful event. “We had a great successful meet up. Apart from the food session, we discussed about the growth of instagram engagement. Rohit Srivastava, founder of FoodFindo and Foodies of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack, gave us a lot of knowledge about the development of our page. The Cha Bar treated us so well! The decoration of the chai bar and arrangement of books are mindblowing,” he expressed.

Tanya from oh.delicious.cuttack, expressed mutual feelings. She especially loved how Cha Bar is an amazing space for both books and tea. “I had a really good experience out there. From ice tea to chicken cheese pasta I rate most of the items 4/5. Talking about their brownie, a huge thumbs up to that. This place is a nice option for chilling out with friends or books and good food,” she further said.
