Shopping In Colorful Colaba Causeway Market

We are great fans of local markets! Having roamed and found great deals in colorful markets of Bhuj, Kutch and our very own Bhuleshwar market, we wanted to explore another favorite! A walk across the Colaba Causeway stretch also known as Shahid Bhagat Singh Road under the archaic buildings is nothing less than an everyday carnival. Shopping for bargains mingles with eating delicious food during a visit to this colorful market that attracts tourists and locals alike

Mostly famous for street shopping, Colaba Causeway houses a few chic boutiques and restaurants, ideal for refueling post a shopping adventure. Start at Cafe Mondegar (a famous cafe that serves chilled beer and a small but good bar menu) and absorb the various sights and sounds at this busy market.
