Atta Galatta started as a regional language bookstore. A haven for those with an insatiable appetite for native tongues. And where there’s interesting literature, there is bound to be exciting activity. It soon got popular as a venue for eclectic workshops, vibrant performances, book launches, group readings, moderated discussions, thrilling quizzes and much more.
People spent hours drowned in books, conversations and events. To keep their stamina going Atta Galatta infused coffee and delicious baked goodies into its offering. Little did they know that people would love it enough to buy it for their homes. The demand for flavourful, nutritious and freshly baked breads increased to such an extent that it had to be turned into a distinct venture. Serendipitously the name fell perfectly into this mix with Atta meaning dough in Hindi, play in Kannada and Galatta referring to a racket.
That’s how today, Atta Galatta’s two separate endeavours—books and breads—have come under the same cozy umbrella.
