I went here (20 and 21 March) to get a coffee but this place is now sadly closed. I asked the shop owners by the street but they just shook their heads. No more coffee here.

Coffee gets excellent, but the lack lustre service drags this place down. The guy behind the cash register didn't want to come to our table to give us a menu... he was also the guy that made the coffees on that day - and he did a great job. Shame he wasn't a bit happier. The place has a great... More

We visited here a couple of times mainly for good coffee and wi-fi access.  The staff were pleasant and the music was cool and the samosas were very tasty.

Went in for a snack. The place looks nice. Sofas looked comfy but were in the sun, so we sat at a table. Veg samosas with mint and tamarind chutney sounded nice, but after waiting for 10 minutes, arrived with ketchup. Waiter tried to explain that mint was out of season... I'm sure a local wouldn't have been offered this... More

A part of the beautiful Pal Haveli, Cafe Sheesh mahal, doubles up as an antique shop. More than a coffee shop, it has an ambience of a lounge bar. After spending the day at the fort or the at the bustling market, it's a joy to have a coffee in the cool comforts of Sheesh mahal. The quiet cafe, overlooks... More

Sit upstairs on sofas with a view of the Sardar market gate and clock tower. It is easy to while away time here just watching Indian life: motorscooters, rickshaws, animals, people washing at the public sink and so on. I recommend plain lime soda or banana lassi (like a probiotic yogurt drink).

A strange atmosphere café/antique shop. Food was well over priced but there was air conditioning which was an advantage. Go else where if you are on a budget.

Best cappuccino had in India, almost on par to the flat whites at home. Great place to sit and watch he world go by from this lovely coffee shop. Unfortunately I discovered this place only 7 hours before I was to leave Jodhpur, if this wasn't the case I would have visited daily. No food had only coffee
