Let me think, let me think, Oh I don’t care!
Chandler said that, and we say it now, as we think about the best possible way to start this blog!
‘Coz frankly, who cares? It is F.R.I.E.N.D.S, for goodness sake!
Imagine the iconic orange and green sofa where innumerable ‘Let’s grab a coffee’ sessions happened, that perfect purple door which was the way to epic friendship, a wall covered with the best moments of the series and a coffee cup that says ‘You’re her Lobster!’.
Feel the rush already? We felt the same!
Lost like little kids in a candy shop, our happiness knew no bounds as we entered this amazing place. The café is done up with some amazing memorabilia depicting one of the many incidents in the series that made us crack and cry and that made us happy.
The green entrance with along with the ‘Central Perk’ board and the neon signs showing ‘Espresso’ and ‘Cappuccino’ take you back to the good ‘ol days.
The energy is overwhelming as soon as you enter the café. The television played re-runs of the series (not that one can enjoy them in the weekend rush), but it was right there!
From the coasters to the coffee mugs, to the walls…everything F.R.I.E.N.D.S style!
There is a lower level as well as a mezzanine where there is low-seating. They have card games that only adds to the I never wanna leave feeling! All of Phoebe’s songs have been framed on one of the walls.
You can order a UNAGI omelette or a Joeyland Steak or a mocktail based on your favourite character. We did not try much, just Cold Coffee, Fav Phoebe and The Red Ross each of which was average. The rush was maddening even as the wait staff did their best to serve everyone.
We would suggest visiting the place on a quiet afternoon or early evening if you want to enjoy a meal and have a fun time with your special gang. But if you don’t mind the craziness that this place obviously attracts, then just get up and head there at any time and you will come back with memories!
F.R.I.E.N.D.S is our Lobster and as much as we want, we cannot find faults in our lobster, right?
If you one of the millions who wish it had never ended, then you should head straight to Central Perk 7 and re – live some of the amazing moments while only creating some with your own gang on the Memories Couch
