F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has always made us jealous. Whenever we watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S. we always wanted a place like Central Perk to hang-out at with our friends and spend some quality time amidst of busy life everyone has been stuck into. Once you come in Pune, you can’t simply stay anywhere else. Pune has one of the best climates with coolest cafes dated back in the 80’s to some funky cafes of the 21st century. Punekars have various options to explore around the city to spend quality time without spending a fortune.
