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!!!!

Cake Lady's lemon cake is the best I have ever had. The cake is moist, the frosting is just the right amount of tart, and it is as fresh as can be. It goes especially well with Darjeeling tea, and a view of the Himalayas. Plus, Cake Lady herself is super nice, and obviously enjoys what she does. The prices... More

Two friends from Paris, my husband and I ordered box lunches and cakes, which were all amazing. I have a gluten allergy, so she made my box lunch and all three cakes gluten free. Everything was so fresh, and so delicious. It was also such a treat to have her personally deliver the goodies! We will definitely order from her... More
