Not the Keventers I knew

Standards have fallen hugely but the cocktail sausages are still as good as ever. I worried about the hygiene though and as always, it's hard to get a seat. I think the place has become more touristy of late but nostalgia takes over every time I visit Darjeeling and willy nilly, I head to Keventers.

This place is a historic landmark, a must visit for travelers. The simple and basic fare is quite satisfying, especially as a place for tea, snacks and breakfast. This is a good place for western tourists who are longing to have familiar western fare such as bacon and eggs, sandwiches, real cheese etc... The confectionery downstairs has a number of... More

Keventeers has always been a favorite. They have great breakfast and food. It was quite hard to get a seat during rush hours. They have been doing a totally wonderful job. I guess adding few more menu items like mocktails and drinks would do even great.

The place is a classic example of good n cheap food. Their own made cold cuts are very delicious. And their milkshakes are also very good. They do not have much vsriety. But for breakfast & brunch its ab ideal place for lazing.

A visit to Darjeeling without having breakfast at the Keventers will be incomplete. This century old café is renowned for its sumptuous breakfast. Sausages, hem, salami, etc served over there were really tasty. the non veg platter is just awesome. The Darjeeling tea served in pot soothed and comforted me.

Enjoy the breakfast with an amazing view of the mighty Kanchenjunga on a warm sunny day. Been going to keventers for the past 20 yrs and the food is pretty consistent. My favorite is the milkshake in the thick glass bottle.

Ever since I read about Keventers in a Bengali novel (Darjeeling Jomjomat) I wanted to visit this place for the hot Choclate. Over the years I heard about their legendary breakfast platter from friends and also wanted to try that.

Keventers needs more love and care. The food is average... The place is small...owing to its long heritage. You can see the snow peaked ranges when the weather is clear. The open air seating is what is attractive about this restaurant. Its the place where many writers..and film makers sat.. brooded over and created amazing pieces of work. Go...check it... More

It is a rainy day on 18th Jun'15 . We are enjoying the view of Darjeeling with hot chocolate and sandwich sitting on the open balcony of nostalgic Keventers .( but "baranda-y nei roddur " as it drizzles). It is a heritage restaurant visited very often and liked by the great Satyajit Ray among others. A great feeling sitting in... More

This restaurant was a complete disappointment. The place is old, small & cramped. The chicken sausages & sandwiches were not good at all. Egg preparation was just OK. The only plus point is its location and view. As it was drizzling when we visited we could not sit outside and enjoy the view.
