Tapovana Lunch Box: Artisanal South Indian Cuisine

Tapovana Lunch Box, the Hamptons’ first non-profit spiritual café, has a unique approach to dining and service. Located at 2357 Montauk Hwy in Bridgehampton, the café is open Monday to Friday from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM, offering eat-in, take-out, and delivery options.

Inspired by time spent at the Ramanaashram in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India, Tapovana Lunch Box is more than just a café. It’s a community initiative where 100 percent of the proceeds go towards sharing meals with the local hungry population. The café aims to provide artisanal South Indian Cuisine and other specialties based on Ayurvedic principles of vibrant health and longevity. Every dish is prepared single-handedly, sincerely, and mindfully in small batches using health-conscious ingredients.

Tapovana will be holding “A Vedic Cultural Experience” on Thursday, October 12, from 5:30 to 9 PM. The charitable evening aims to share in the wonders of the ancient Vedic world — a world dedicated to reconnecting us to an experience of divinity and bliss. Guests are invited to participate in a live, fire offering and puja (traditional blessing ceremony); a modern rendering of a classical Indian musical performance; Tapovana’s celestial food and handcrafted drinks, and more.

In collaboration with the Bridgehampton Lions Club and the Bridgehampton Community House, Tapovana Lunch Box donates hundreds of fresh, healthy, delicious meals a month to local food pantries, feeding thousands of community members. The café currently donates over 300 fresh meals per month and aims to increase this number with the community’s support.

The café’s menu changes daily, offering a variety of dishes like homestyle dosa, masala potato and local zucchini with roasted cashews, cucumber drumstick sambar, and coconut chutney. Side dishes and extras include pineapple beet salad, carrot mung bean slaw, spinach potato pakora with chutney, and a range of refreshing drinks like authentic masala chai, ginger mint lime drink, and watermelon cooler.

In addition to its daily menu, Tapovana Lunch Box also offers a selection of market items, featuring their signature dishes and items packaged for convenience. These include a variety of chutneys, drinks, and frozen meals that customers can take home and enjoy at their leisure.
