Exploring India: A Cafe Where Your Bill Is Already Paid By The Previous Customer

An author once said ‘The most truly generous persons are those who give silently without hope of praise or reward.’ This is exactly what you will feel when you get out of Seva Cafe with your tummy full and heart, satisfied.


Seva Cafe as the name suggests is a cafe where the meals are cooked by volunteers, served by volunteers and at the end of the meal, the guests only pay what they feel like. Seva Cafe is based on the pay-it-forward or circle of giving Your meal has been paid for by someone, you will be paying for the next patron. The difference is in the service: food served with love turns the atmosphere into one of a home full of guests.

They give you a bill in the end but you’ll be surprised to see 0.0 everywhere with few words that will restore your faith in humanity.


You are considered as a guest and not a customer in Seva Cafe. You will find all kinds of volunteers at the cafe. Right from housewives to college students and even retired persons.


Seva cafe now has their branches at Banglore, Calcutta, Mumbai, Pune and even The United States of America.

It is open six days a week from 7 pm to 10 pm and is closed on Mondays.
