Opened earlier this year and sitting next to Baga Creek locale in Goa, the Royal Enfield Garage Cafe is a port of call for travelers and tourists alike, especially if you’re a Royal Enfield Enthusiast. A perfect place for long, slow evenings, the Royal Enfield Garage Cafe imbibes the cultural ethos of Goa in its uniquely designed spaces along with an impressive museum showcasing the brand’s romance with the passion of motorcycling. This one-of-a-kind cafe marries the art of Hospitality with the spirit of Motorcycling.

Amidst picturesque settings, the cafe-cum-restaurant beckons you to cross its threshold to experience the new ‘Royal Enfield’ escapade – with your hands resting on the tabletops instead of being on the bike’s handlebar. As you get inside the cafe, the unhurried, laid-back aura of the cafe puts you at ease, and transports you to pre-WW II days, with its beautiful museum, featuring dated Royal Enfield motorcycles from the 1930s to the early 2000s.

The arresting beauty of these motorbikes will make you go awestruck, with each having its own slice of history. Like for instance, the 1939 Flying Flea motorcycle, one of the most successful military motorbikes developed for use by paratroopers in the Second World War (WWII), was used by the British Army Red Berets parachute regiment. It was suitable for the military because of its overall smaller dimensions, and it could be dropped anywhere using a
drop cage and was used by the forces to deliver secret and urgent messages to their base camp.

In this way, the Royal Enfield Cafe offers a richer, more comprehensive experience of the iconic brand – going beyond mere retail outlets and celebrating Royal Enfield’s commitment to ‘pure motorcycling’ – by creating immaculately curated spaces that pay homage to the motorcycling lifestyle, in key destinations across the country.
