A cozy little place just a few steps from the Chowrasta. It has an excellent view from its first-floor seating area and is very well maintained. The food is tasty, though a bit on the pricey side. The owner is a warm lady who came out to ask us specifically how we would like our order. Overall a lovely place... More

If you come here for western style breakfast, you will be pleasantly surprised. They serve some really decent sandwiches, pancakes, hashbrowns etc. But for momos, thukpa or chow-mien there are other better places in Dajeeling.

After a long walk in Darjeeling I got hungry and decided to try out the glutenfree pancakes at Foodsteps. In addition I ordered a cinnamon smoothie. Both were absolutely gorgeous and the view is amazing. Would recommend it. Nice place for chilling out and reloading.

The staff in this place are amazing. And where else can you get waffles with fruit in Darjeeling? And they don't skimp on the fruit--they pile it on.

Visited, based on reviews, but was disappointed with both choice & quality of food and also the service. More a youngsters' hang-out! Not value for money either.

The staff are very friendly and the views are lovely, especially in the morning you can see the main street waking up. Reena made us a batch of biscuits to take with us to Gangtok, chocolate oat and peanut butter, we had... More

Located close to glenarys pn Mall Road, this is a small cosy restaurant with a mexxanine floor for smokers. The place offers a nice view all around with Shangrila restaurant right opposite it. Of the little unique menus that it offer, we ordered a plate of waffles and pancakes along with some sort of a non alcoholic drink. While the... More
