“They say good things come in small packages and that’s exactly what Dakte stands for! Dakte is a Konkani word and means little or tiny!
This cute little air conditioned café sitting right on the Siolim main road was a much needed addition to the locality. This little cozy, European vibe café belongs to the young Entrepreneurs’ who own Cuebebar Smokehouse in Assagaon.
The moment you enter, the cafe welcomes you with warm and cosy vibes. And happy & smiling faces make your experience even more hospitable. Nisha Almeida and Rumi ( Shimonti ) are a super girls team and have been part of the Cuebebar success story before they started Dakte.
It may be a cute little place but the menu is definitely not little. They have a wide variety of healthy and indulgent café food to satiate your taste buds. It also looks like a super cute place to sit and work while you sip on one of the best coffees!
The menu at dakte has options for everybody, with an all day breakfast, loaded pancakes, sandwiches, salads, smoothies, milkshakes and some fun twists on coffee too.
Apart from their menu, the display counter at dakte always has some fun desserts to choose from with vegan, gluten free and some healthy options too. I tried the Meaty Brekkie, Raw Bounty Truffles, Date, Peanut butter and Coconut Energy Bites (Vegan/Gluten Free) and Double Chocolate Brownie Balls.
Amongst all the things I tried, my favourite was the Meaty Brekkie – the perfect way to begin the day with very generous portions.
I ended my meal with an antioxidant loaded Acai Berry Smoothie and the platter of truffle balls, only wishing I could maybe have eaten some more. I have my eyes on the Fried Chicken Sandwich and the Banana, Cream and Caramel pancakes to try on my next visit.
Dakte is definitely a much needed cafe for Siolim, head over and you just might be surprised with what they have to offer from their tiny little village cafe.”
