Milk is the middle name in this part of the country that is... More

This place used to be a quite little cafe good for friends to meet, however has become a show off pace for a while now. Food quality is decent. Mocktails are good. The location of this place is fantastic. Right in middle of all colleges.

Zen has been a part of living in Ahmedabad. This place keeps my sanity in check and to know that such a place exists is a great relief. Been a regular at most Zen outlets since past 3 years. Me and my better half have spent most of our evenings at this cafe....and continue to do so. A minor hiccup... More

Zen cafe has to be, by far, the best cafe in town. They've got a good bunch of people working there, who brew good coffee and make sandwiches. Lots of young people around - thats a big factor. They have the right music and lighting which totally sets the mood.
