“Make sure to try the Museli! Plus best coffee I've found in India :)”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I went here almost every day during my week-long stay in Udaipur. The place has a cute cafe downstairs and a nice rooftop restaurant upstairs (you can see the whole lake from there). They have a real, European coffee maker and I was surprised by how strong the coffee turned out to be! (After a month of weak Indian coffee, I was thrilled to find something with more flavour!). I believe the large coffee was 40 rupees, which is a bit more than usual, but definitely worth the price, plus it came in a tall mug, so a bit bigger than you're normally served. The museli with fruit at Cafe Namaste is the best I found in India -- and a good portion size for the money (around $1.50 US for a big bowl). The staff greeted me everyday with smiles and it was sad to say goodbye! Please drop in if you're in town!

A tip -- the coffee is stronger downstairs and the museli is better upstairs (nice and crunchy!).

Tried the cafe at the groundfloor. Sandwiches were good. Apple pie was good, chocolatine was disappointing.

dear guest
thank you for giving your reviews about the cafe.
i feel happy to know that you found the sandwiches and apple pie good, but at the same time feel disappointing to know that the chocolatine was not up to your expectations.
we will surely try improving our quality of chocolatine and hopefully will not disappoint you the next time when you are in udaipur.

“All about the view:)”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Stopped at the cafe for a late afternoon snack. The view from the roof top is breath taking, even if its just for the view, it's worth a visit. Had lassi, chicken grilled sandwiches, the service was real good, the food was average, nothing to go back for but worth a visit:)

“Best Lassi, best view and great service”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

I went to this lovely rooftop cafe almost every day during my 10 day stay in Udaipur. It was quiet and you could enjoy there a nice cold soda or lassi while reading or watching the panorama of the lake at sunset or during the hottest hours...definitely a place to try out!

“Great breakfast venue - sit & watch the world go by on the street”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Had afternoon coffee and breakfast at this place. Although out of season there was still a mixture of locals and tourists enjoying the cakes, pastries and 'bean to cup' coffee. Hard for us to judge what this is like during the season as renovation works were underway but service was good and portions of fresh yogurt, banana and honey were generous. The best ground level place we've seen in town
