This restaurant is close to Aazad Maidan in Panaji. You get good breakfast and snakes in the evening. Afternoon the restaurant is closed. Buns ( sweet puri) are my first choice along with varieties of bhajis, mirchi and samosas.

Mushroom bhaji and chappati are great but the bhaji does not last long so go early before 5 in the evenings as there is a great demand for it. Falooda is yummy so are the samosas. Typical Goan bhajis available here.

Cafe Real is like a historical place for us (locals). It offers the same 'patal bhaji-pao' which we had as kids and our parents when they were kids. For just Rs 30, you can get this bhaji-pao and top it up with tea. Breakfast for two? Less than Rs 100. Please don't expect 5-Star treatment or ambience (although it is... More

Been here for an evening snacks and turned out to be our dinner. This place offers excellent goan snacks like Bhaaji pav, poori bhaaji, samosas, etc... Best suitable for a quick evening snack with Tea and also for a good Goan breakfast.

Panjim has its share of institutions that revere simple food and Cafe Real is one of them. Enter this small-n-quaint joint and oodles of old-world charm, and proclaim "Maka bhook lagleah" (I am feeling hungry) to the friendly patrao (owner) and he is sure to oblige. Morning breakfasts such as the chapathi (or the chapathi with butter if you are... More

Visit Cafe Real often, whenever in Panaji. Especially for their mix bhaji and coffee! Service quick and good... except when there is a crowd. The service staff are very efficient and polite...very good customer service too.... do visit when you are walking around and looking for a good place for a quick stop....
