Yay! It’s that time of the week where I over indulge in all things meat, fizzy and simply delicious.
Yes, it’s another food post guys (drum rolls please!) and this time I have a lovely story of two lovebirds cooking a love story in their kitchen. From homemade bread buns to all meat burgers & sandwiches, Nick & Cathlin are two young & passionate entrepreneurs who know how to make your meat cravings tick.
Nick’s Café 18 is a cozy café setup on the Varca Road by Nick after he found his love for cooking while staying as a paying guest during his college days. Unlike most engineers, he didn’t settle for the 9 to 5 work-life balance job and with help of his partner in crime Cathlin, decided to set up a small eatery that today has advanced to a full-fledged café with music, pool table, a drum set and a full car service station just next door (for those who love indulging in a burger while their car gets serviced).
As you can see, the burgers come with fries and sauce but I was completely satisfied with just the burger. The yummy BBQ sauce and the juicy beef patty with bacon just made all my meat cravings go bazzingaa!
Not to brag much but their menu has about 10 all-meat burgers and over 15 sandwich options to choose from. It doesn’t end there, they also do offer an all day breakfast for late risers from 11 am till 11 pm. All this at burger prices starting from INR 160 and sandwiches starting from INR 60 makes it a steal.
Understanding the demand for juicy, tasty burgers and their love to experiment now and then, they have also introduced “The Family Guy Burger” (that’s what I’m calling it!) which is an enormous 1 by 4 burger for a family and urge guests to give it a try.
The interesting thing is that Nick started this burger joint for chicken lovers and yes, the menu has loads of options mainly for chicken lovers (drool away now!). The Spicy BBQ Chicken burger is all yum and fresh with no veggies to clutter your palate. The duo has been making burgers from scratch for a while now, initially they faced trouble from their bread supplier who was not consistent and took a toll on them after which Nick decided on baking bread in their kitchen. For a wholesome dining experience they serve their burger with fries and sauce. If you love fries in any form try their offering of cheesy fries or spicy fries specially prepared by the duo.
This incredible duo, who just don’t take no for an answer have come this far because of their passion – Food. Nick, an Engineer & Cathlin, a Fashion Designer by profession, have done something out of their comfort zone and yet due to their skills and passion, they have created this wonderful cafe . For me this place scored 4 stars on 5 for their incredible Burger preparation, the ambience and service. Their menu is vast with breakfast, drinks, sandwiches, burgers & desserts which makes you want to come back for more.
They also do special orders for events and have also hosted a few family parties in the Café that can house about 30 people. If you’re looking for a place that screens your favorite sport matches or want to host a tournament with your gaming friends, then these guys should be on your list.

I hope this post has at least made you hungry for some burgers and if so, then go head down straight to Nick’s Cafe 18 in Varca
