Welcome to Mithai Indian Café, a contemporary Indian cafe, tea house, bakery and dessert destination in the heart of Cary, NC. Evoking a timeless tradition, we are the Carolinas’ first local Indian sweet manufacturer. All our sweets are made at our facility in Chatham Square, and not imported from New Jersey, New York, Chicago or Canada.
Our specialties include authentic Indian sweets, snacks, and vegetarian/vegan dishes. A significant number of sweets are traditional Bengali sweets (from the Eastern part of India, which uses no ghee or oil and only farm fresh whole milk). Our collection of sweets are individually hand crafted using traditional clay and wooden molds.
We do large orders for all events: weddings, graduations, birthdays, any event you want to give a sweet Indian touch!
You don’t have to be an NC resident to have these sweets at your wedding – Mithai Indian Cafe ships within the US and can personalize favor boxes for your. Just select the box, provide the message, and choose your sweets!
You won’t find your average Indian sweet here! Mithai Indian Cafe creates unique mithai like chocolate almond burfi walnut chocolate burfi, and chocolate coffee sandesh.
