Johnson's cafe gives you an entirely different experience where the food served is delightfully true to the cuisine they belong to. Trout in its various preparations is pristine..almond crusted one is their highlight. Their Pastas and Risottos are the best I have had in a non metro city.

Order anything - breakfast to dinner - you wont regret it. The puri bhaji for breakfast was yum, the contental chicken dish, roast meat, oven-baked trout, spaghetti arabitta, spaghetti in white sauce.. the chinese too was yum. :)

Good place to eat and relax. Food is good. However the place was little dull - maybe because of off-season or maybe we were too early for them!
