This place is bang on mall road and right across the lake. Probably the best lake view in town. You can sit here for hours and hours without any fuss. Other than that the food is average, and service a bit slow.

Its a good option when you does not want to go to the main Mall Road near to Naina Devi Temple. The taste of food was very good as per our expectation.

We tasted both Chinese and South Indian food. All were tasty. Price was reasonable. Mixed fried rice was superb, but Chowmin could be better.Nice lake view was an add-on.

Don't be misguided by the name cafe. Go through the menu and you would see that it is just another crappy restaurant that serves Chinese, Indian n continental under the same roof. The moment we were seated the waiter was after us to order as if he had a train to catch. We got our order in few minutes soon... More
