Café Déjà Vu is a quaint little cafe tucked away in the upper Khatla area of Aizawl. The sweet aroma of baked goodies will surely make your mouth water as soon as you step inside the café. Lallawmzuali Hnamte is the proud owner and baker of Café Déjà Vu that opened its doors on September 2013.
It is a coffee shop cum bakery retail, which offers an assortment of cakes, pastries, cheesecake, doughnuts, brownies, tarts etc. A cup of hot coffee (depending on the varieties) using Lavazza coffee beans would cost between Rs 40 to Rs 60, a cup of cold coffee or a milkshake would cost anywhere between Rs 70 to Rs 90. Doughnuts and cheesecakes would cost anywhere between Rs 30 to Rs 70. A meal for two would typically cost around Rs 320.
Some of their most popular items include cheesecakes, doughnuts, cookies, red velvet cake and their special pineapple cake with dark chocolate ganache filling. What sets them apart from other coffee shops is their focus on quality and flavour. They also specialize in customized cakes for weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays.
Lallawmzuali says, ‘Right from the beginning, I was clear about the target customers and therefore, consciously avoided making bakery items that would be available in other bakery shops. Customer response has been overwhelming, far more than our expectations, and this gives us a strong desire to constantly strive for higher standards with the objective of offering our customers the very best.’
