Its in the process of changing hands, but the cake recipes are awesome, and to be totally honest, there is no competition. The only other cakes in Darjeeling are pretty ordinary to say the least.

My mom asked me if I would like to have a piece of cake, I didn't hesitate to say no. When she had the piece in hand, I just asked for a bite. Then I had 2 pieces of the cake, it was awesome.

What an unique and flavored shop! The cakes were really good and very few locations offer such a quality and variety of cakes. Enjoyed the time there and they are best to be tasted on the spot. The climate and the ingredients are special and makes it an unique memorable visit.

I'd so been looking forward to ordering from the "Cake Lady", but sadly, I was told she is not currently making cakes. She is taking a break until she gets her diabetes in check. Obviously, making cakes means tasting and that's a lot of sugar intake. But from what I gathered, she does plan on returning in a few months.

The Cake Lady's chocolate cake was a highlight of our short visit to Darjeeling. Absolutely delectable and honestly the tastiest cake in all of India! Fast delivery right to our hotel and we even had the honor of meeting the cake lady herself at Kunga restaurant. Highly highly recommend!!!!
