Founded just a couple of years ago by a trio of Mumbai-based friends from far-flung locales, Le Mill has quickly become the “it” shop in town (Jade Jagger frequents the cafe) and already has a second outpost in the center of town. The original location, housed in a 15,000-square-foot converted 1920s rice mill, is where you’ll find a bespoke line of furniture, linens, and other household essentials, all with an Indo-European vibe. Plus a cafe serving organic fare, a flower shop, and free WiFi. The newer store, which focuses on fashion, is located in the city’s Breach Candy area.
