This place is too good for breakfast. Worth the money spend on food.Their diesel special breakfast and Horlicks are best combination. Place is in the heart of city. The only issue with the property is they don't have any parking facilities. We need to park the car on road side.

Diesal cafe is a great place to just relax on a weekend evening. The food is priced slightly on the higher range but it seems worth the price. It is known for its great breakfast however the salads and steaks are great too...

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...

As a kid, I used to devour on fluffy Pancakes and crispy Waffles drizzled with maple syrup for breakfast. 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
