Empty shell, very average food

This cafe looks like a bistro and even seems like one at first. 5 steps inside the cafe and chances are you will know it for what it is. We went for breakfast and found they had run out of their aloo parathas which looked decent on the plates of the other guests. We tried their Sandwiches, South... read more

The place is very cool, but food is average and service extremely slow... Waiters are more interested in what is happening in their Facebook or wechat.

We were shopping nearby Chowrasta when we discovered Frank Ross Cafe. It is a small cafe with a few high seating chairs.

Beautiful place! The staff was very helpful .The club sandwich was o.k but the best item was the cold coffee.Except for the fact that the food is a little overpriced,it is a great place if you ever happen to come here.the best vegetarian option on mall road. P.S-no credit cards accepted

Except coffee, rest of the food is kind of average. They have a live kitchen but service is slow when there are many guests. Else it's an ok place to have a coffee and some hygienic snacks on your side in Darjeeling

Loved the coffee over there.It is cute,small cafe with nice ambience.Works on self-service mode.You should drop by this cafe if you want to refresh yourself with a quick cup of coffe.What I liked about this cafe is its simple yet cute decor.A perfect small and cosy hill station cafe.
