Asked for an espresso and got a black filter coffee and the tea came with sugar in it so much so that it just tasted like milky sugar water! There are far better places in town!

This Café offers good south indian food like masala dosa. Prices are reasonable and we like it here. Next Day the Staff was very unfriendly. So it depends on luck if its worth to eat here or not.

Frank Ross Cafe is located near the Mall Area in Darjeeling beside the Frank Ross Medicine shop. It is a small cafe with a few high seating chairs made with cane. It is a place for different cuisine, but limited variety of food. Good place to visit with family.

Every time we go to Darjeeling we eat at Frank Ross cafe at least once. It's a scruffy looking place next door to the pharmacy of the same name (do take time to have a look - it's like a time-warp shop). It has a small room at the back of the restaurant with just a couple of tables and... More

Though veg in nature, food quality is very good here. Not very spacious but the seats by the window gives you the view of the cloud covered hills. Must try here is aloo paratha with pickles, grilled sandwich and tea or coffee. South Indian dishes are also available here. Very neat and clean environment.

It looked like a cute cafe which you expect to serve great food but it really didn't meet my expectations. The service is poor and food is below average.

It's a small joint on Nehru Road, a veg cafe...Didn't find much innovation in the menu.. I tasted Alu Paratha with mint chutney.. I would rate the food OK... but nothing special.. The restaurant does offer good view...You may try this joint, but won't miss much if you don't
