In Goa, it is almost the end of summer. The heat is unbearable and after a super long and tiring week, Sunday calls for a relaxing brunch. So in search of a place closer to nature I discovered this cozy garden cafe in Anjuna call Artjuna.
Keep reading for deets on my ‘last day of summer’ outfit and my super relaxing and healthy Sunday brunch at Artjuna.
Last day of summer OOTD.
To beat this summer heat I wore a strappy yellow floral mini dress. It is a back open dress which is super stylish! I paired it with white sneakers. I accessorized with round shell earrings.
I love this dress, the color is really vibrant and puts you in that summery mood immediately and also the material is so light that you feel really comfortable.

One of my fav ways to leave behind work stress and tiredness is by having a laid back Sunday over a healthy meal, and cafe Artjuna is the best place for this if you are in Goa.
Beautifully nestled in an old Portuguese house, this arty cafe is easy to spot. Artjuna gives you some really ‘colorful’ vibes with its trendy decor in an ‘atelier style’ setup. The cozy garden sets in the Sunday mood instantly and has an outdoor picnic style seating which I love as it gives you a chance to mingle with other people easily. No need to worry about parking as it has its own little parking space opposite the cafe.
Cafe Artjuna also has its own boutique where they sell trendy boho style clothing and accessories, the indo western fusion just adds to the charm of this place and makes it even more attractive!
Artjuna actually has everything to make the day eventful, from yoga classes and an MMA center to the weekly movie screening (happens every Friday) and just when you think that’s all, you come across this little library with a collection of books of various languages! What else can we ask for?
Being a super hot summer day we decided to begin with refreshing drinks and ordered an ice tea and the super refreshing ‘cool as a cucumber’ drink.
We then chose the ‘Healthy Breakfast’ which included a delicious bowl of fresh fruit salad, curd, one egg of choice (I selected poached), brown bread, butter and jam and a glass of dress watermelon juice.
Albina chose the ‘Humshuka’ which included poached eggs in thick tomato sauce served with pickled vegetables, spicy chutney and pita bread.
The brunch is very copious and is really tasty. I was very pleasantly surprised by the importance Artjuna gives to the freshness and quality of the products.
Artjuna has a variety of tempting smoothies on their menu, all freshly prepared at the spur of the moment! Albina and I couldn’t resist trying out a few so, we selected Jammuna, Mango Bliss, and Surprise. All these smoothies are so yummy. My favorite was the Surprise which is made spinach, banana, coconut, cashew and coconut milk – It’s a must try at this cafe.
The passionate Artjuna team never stops… they also have a huge number of mouth-watering intricately created French desserts and is the only place in Goa u will find it. So if you are sweet toothed you know your next stop in Goa!
