Quick Breakfast

This cafe is more than a breakfast, you can sit and relax here with delicious Indian snacks. Try puri bhaji and tea its awesome. The ambiance and service is good. The place is wonderful for vegetarian people like me. It is a hard thing to find a good vegetarian restaurant like this one in Goa.

It is air conditioned, clean and has nice wall papers. A bit congested though.They premix sugar in your coffee and tea so be careful.The chapatis and the Sunni are are nice too. My... More
