Good calm and peaceful place with good food. Always a place to sit relax and do tea and coffee. I recommend this place if you are on solo trip or with a friend.

Had my breakfast here. Overall the food and the quantity was good. However pancakes were a big disappointment. Otherwise a must try.

This was my second visit there - after two years. I did not find it that great this time around. We ordered Pizza, Pancake, Paranthas, Freshlime, and pineapple juice. Pineapple juice was very very sour. Pancake was decent. Not happy this time around.

The place is over hyped. The food is decent not exceptional. Dishes have been modified to suit the palette of foreigners. You might find the food bland. Don't make the mistake of ordering beer, they charge 250 for a bottle. It's a dhaba on first...More
