This was a place we found while strolling on Mall Road- I liked it because the seats overlooked the Mall Road on the second floor. But what got us hooked to it is the food- we had their sandwiches, shakes, lebanese platter, pizza, pasta, roll and desserts and all the items were super. They were so delicious, fresh and flavourful... More

This is a great cafe in Shimla, probably the best for good coffee, excellent fresh food/snacks and relaxed ambience. Three floors (beginning up quite steep flight of stairs to reach 1st floor) to choose from with amazing views from the rooftop tables, but also nice to sit by the open windows looking onto the crumbling (but to be renovated apparently...

This is exactly opposite the old town hall and Police station on Mall road. Meals are very refreshing and lovingly made. Ask for a table on the top floor. It is a bit cramped and could be very cold, but the views are worth it. Also, this was the best place in shimla that serves freshly ground coffee.

The long steep stairs to this cafe remind you of any of the Khan Market eateries. The food was equally good and fresh. Pita bread was crispy and was melting in the mouth. Falafel was the regular that you will have anywhere. The pick of the meal was the cheese and ham pizza - crisp, cheese and the ham was... More

Had come to visit Shimla with a few of my friends. We were recommended this place by some other friends from Delhi before we got here. We stayed in Shimla for 3 days and came here at least once a day. The menu is quite compact though very well planned and over the 3 days we pretty much tried everything... More

Don't know where to start from! The entrance to the place is a narrow staircase that'll keep you amazed as to how this place could be. But not to exaggerate, this place will leave your taste buds crave for more by the time you leave the restaurant. As soon as I entered into it, I was welcomed by a sweet... More
