“Famous spot, good for meat lovers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Had to try this place, as it's a Darjeeling tradition. Stopped once for tea and once for full-on breakfast. Service is good, ambiance is interesting, with seating outside and inside--an old school diner feel, with a Darjeeling twist.

The servings of the meat are huge, so if you order bacon and eggs, you'll be eating half a plate of pork! Toast is ordered by the slice, and it's small, so order more than you think you need.

Not quite for me, as it was an excessive amount of meat! I prefer a small amount of meat on the side of my eggs...

“Great view, not much else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The open balcony of Keventers, is one of the nicest places to sit of any restaurant or cafe in Darjeeling.

It is a shame that everything else about the food and coffee is so bland or bad.

The waiters all seem to take aeons to do anything, and the menu is very bland and boring. Coffee is pretty terrible, and food taste is also extremely average. The place is pretty dirty also, so don't be surprised if there are dead insects in the sugar bowls etc, etc.

Is a very nice place to sit and watch all the action of Darjeeling on a sunny day though.

“Unbeatable in Darjeeling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Anytime Snack, their terrace is suited for all times of the day. I can literally survive on their grub all day long. Sausages are to die for!!!
