Are you a F.R.I.E.N.D.S’ fanatic? Ever since F.R.I.E.N.D.S have gone off the air in 2004, we have been missing those characters and Central Perk. Central Perk has been close to every fan. Every fan had the dream of visiting Central Perk, sipping a cup of coffee on the famous orange couch with your friends(I mean both). Someone seems to have heard your wishes and opened a replica of Central Perk Cafe at Navi Mumbai and it is super exciting.
Central Perk 7, located near Khargar station in Navi Mumbai is named after the cafeteria shown on the famous sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S. This place will make every 90s kid nostalgic with their amazing decor.
There is F.R.I.E.N.D.S related stuff all over the Cafe. The walls covered with posters from the show. The epic lines from the show can be seen on the walls. How can Central Perk be complete without the great Orange Sofa and the Green Chair? The owners have also introduced a similar looking Orange Sofa in the cafe with a reserved sign. They telecast the F.R.I.E.N.D.S show back to back to give you the real feel and take you back in time. They even have the Foosball table and also provide games like Uno and Jenga which you can enjoy with your gang.
The food served is Italian and American. The foods are named after the main characters of the show like Joeyland which mainly consists of the steaks, Unagi omelettes under which comes different types omelettes. The mocktails really come with a flavour of F.R.I.E.N.D.S as they are named after the characters, they offer six mocktails featuring six of the lead characters. “Fay Phoebe”, “Ms. Chanandler Bong”, “Rosy Rachel” read three of the six from the menu. The best part about this place is that it keeps the nostalgia running, the menu, the wall, decor, ambiance, the tables, coffee mugs all are custom made to bring you closer to F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Few of the coffee mugs read, “Joey doesn’t share food!”, “They don’t know that we know they know”, “can I interest you with a sarcastic comment?” which you do remember from the show.
It’s not just the ambiance but also the lip-smacking food which will make you crave a visit to this place again. The staff is extremely friendly(yes an intended pun) and decor will take you in a walk through all the episodes of friends. We spent a quality time both with the food as well as figuring out each Easter Egg that this place has to offer.
