How many times did you pass by a sugarcane juice bandi (stall) and did not feel like trying it, worried about the cleanliness of the stall? Am sure you might have given up the idea of drinking sugarcane juice many times this summer even when you’re thirsty after seeing the flies sitting on and flying around the juice vessel and worse getting crushed with the sugarcane in the crusher.
You may also be worried about the quality of ice used and the cleanliness of the glasses in which the juice is served. This is very common in Hyderabad, if you want to drink sugarcane juice you should compromise on the hygiene part. You can literally find hundreds of sugarcane juice stalls in Hyderabad but not one good place to drink.
We have found one place in the city where you can have sugarcane juice without worrying about the hygiene and quality. It’s Cane Cafe. This sugarcane juice parlour is located at Tarnaka ‘X’ roads, beside Sanman hotel on the main road leading towards Habsiguda.
You need not worry about parking your vehicle – there is sufficient off street parking. It is on the inner road, you can drive in easily to the place.
