Diesel Cafe is my favorite breakfast place... Choice of Indian or continental is varied and good .. Sunday breakfast is better ... appam and stew .. Chinese, italian and Indian cuisine is served ... great place to chill with friends with a beer and good music as additional company ...

Visited here with a friend for dinner. The salad and pasta served was good. Very few places in the town where you can eat pancakes. Although a bit pricey, a nice place for a family dinner or dining out with friends

A nice place with not so comfortable chairs. The place is small but the salads are really big, especially the chef's special. Reasonably priced good food... continental stuff...

Although mom used to make the usual South Indian specialties like Dosa, Idli, Upma, etc, there were days where she would make a typical English breakfast. During my childhood, I used to eat egg as well, but after turning into a... More

Went for their all day breakfast at lunch time on a sunday.. had heard a lot about it. The waffles were quite good, but not excellent. The toppings were very good, but the waffles were floury. The pancakes also were quite good. However, overall, nothing extraordinary. the taste and falvour was good. Maybe one should go earlier in the day... More

Food need to be reworked to better level.Salads served with burgers and sandwiches are good.Burger patties smelly and sandwich bread too small to compare mediocre restaurants. Liquor need to have better accompaniment to go along.

Visited this place for dinner with family. Did not know what exactly to order but tried Stuffed Mushroom Fritters, Sautéed Chicken with Mushroom, mixed peppers in black sauce and Pasta Bolognese. Food is tasteful but the quantity is limited. Service is fast and good. Spirits, wine and beer available too. Overall a good experience. Should try Sunday breakfast some day.
