Even though the parlour is spacious, it can still get pretty crowded and congested because of the huge rush round-the-clock but it is worth it!

They have many outlets. I tried the one in the food court of City Center mall. Their vanilla and Belgian chocolate are out of the world. I'll definitely come back whenever I visit Mangalore. They should definitely consider expanding to the cities of Kerala.

Once a customer walks in he keeps walking every time he gets an opportunity or he creates an opportunity to walk into ideal. I have seen people who eat a big serving of ice creams for lunch and dinner. They don't eat anything else(there... More
