This place is located near the Autorickshaw stand in Palolem, just off the main road. The food is amazingly fresh, the staff is super kind and hospitable and you can't get enough of their smoothies!!!! it's the perfect thing on a hot day;) try it and you will be coming back for more! can't wait till next time.

This place has great coffee (about 170 rupees a mug once tax is added) and the food is good but pricey (about 300 -400 rupees). We went here a couple of times and found that unless you go early (before 9am) you can be waiting upto an hour for food and the payment system is complicated and slow too -... More

So this is close to the beach and it has a great vie. I loved the food and the crowd was pretty good. Desserts, especially the cakes were brilliant.

The food is very western and good compared to the area, the prices are bit high while the service is not good enough. More then once we waited long time to get drinks and food. For those prices I expect more.

Visited the Cafe Inn on recommendation of TripAdvisor and the Lonely Planet guide... and what a disappointment. The Cafe Inn is apparently famous for its coffee, good food and free WiFi, we had problems with all of these. No coffee available when we visited, seemingly the machine was broken. The food took an age to be prepared, when it eventually... More

This seems to be one of the busiest Cafe's/Restaurants in Palolem. We stayed at "Crystal Goa" which is the adjacent guest house and therefore breakfast that was included in our stay was served at Cafe Inn. The Cafe serves pretty good coffee as well as a variety of dishes. The breakfast seems to be the biggest hit here.

I had a veg burger, that literally tasted like nothing... And the smoothies were awful. After that said, we discovered the prices on the Manu are not including taxes (not so common in India..) so we ended up with a 1000 rupees bill for two sandwiches and 2 smoothies!!! A waste of money...

Dear Gal, I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience at Cafe Inn recently. Although it's rare it may happenes that during rush hours, which September and October were full with them, some dishes leave our kitchen without passing our quality control. As a costumer you should know that if there is any dish, food or drinks, which you did... More

Clean, great looking food. Very good English breakfast and excellent beef burger. Coffee is awesome as in real latte art cappuccino. Are there a few times and each one was good. Some Israeli music playing at times. It's clearly an Israeli extension... Lots of smoking at most times. Prices are quite high for India but it's all worth it.

Thank galg
