This is in the campus of Ahmedabad College outside the Ahmadavad ni Gufa, and is essentially a glorified college canteen with self service. We had cappuccino and chai and both were typical Indian style milk based concoctions in spite of specifying that we wanted very little milk. 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.

This place is really a live throbbing place for meetings and hangouts.The sandwiches, coffee and tea variants offered here are also quite upto the mark. Peaceful and calm surroundings can make any of the most tired person relax.
