The Shakshuka at Half Light Coffee Roasters was a burst of enticing flavors and vibrant colors. The dish came with poached eggs nestled in a rich and aromatic tomato sauce infused with a delightful blend of spices. The depth of flavor was remarkable, with the tomato base providing a tangy and robust foundation, complemented by the warmth of cumin, paprika, and other carefully selected spices.

Each bite was a delightful balance of savory goodness and subtle sweetness from the tomatoes. The Shakshuka came with two slices of bread, butter and a small portion of salad. The eggs were overcooked and we did not get the extra gooey-ness, nevertheless, the dish tasted good.

While the Shakshuka at Half Light Coffee Roasters was undeniably delicious, I must say that the portion size was a bit small for us and would’ve appreciated a slightly bigger portion. In terms of value for money, I found the portion sizes at Half Light Coffee Roasters to be slightly smaller than expected given the price.

Overall, the experience at Half Light Coffee Roasters proved to be a good and we could come back to try some other dish. 

The Verdict: Half Light Coffee Roasters

While the coffee took center stage, the food offerings at Half Light Coffee Roasters were also worthy of mention. The carefully curated menu featured a range of delectable options, from hearty sandwiches to fresh salads and indulgent breakfasts. The flavors were thoughtfully combined, and the presentation was aesthetically pleasing, adding an extra touch of delight to the dining experience.

However, the portion sizes of the food items as well as the drinks were slightly smaller in comparison to the price. While the quality was undeniable, it would have been more satisfying if the portions were more generous to match the overall experience.

Additionally, the cafe also seems more like a coffee bar than a cafe. Whereas, since we are not coffee experts, we felt a little out of place with the various choices of coffee and the fancy language associated with each menu item. That being said we did enjoy our time at Half Light in Jaipur and would go back again (after we study some coffee first!)

Overall, Half Light Coffee Roasters exceeded my expectations and offered a truly captivating coffee experience. From the exceptional coffee selection to the warm ambiance and friendly staff, it was evident that this cafe was a labor of love and passion. I highly recommend a visit to Half Light Coffee Roasters for coffee enthusiasts and those seeking a cozy spot to unwind and indulge in the art of coffee.
