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....

An old-timers joint for goan bhaji-pao's, snacks and chav (chai; milk tea). Vegetarian. My favorites remains batat bhaji with pao (goan bread) and futilli mirchi (green chilli fritters).

Had lunch here with my girlfriend and the flavour in every dish we had was brilliant. It was the best meal we had in Panaji and I would love to return. Service was amazingly quick, our order was taken after 1 minute and the food came out in only 2 minutes!!
