“Grandest of all cafe's !”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Leopold cafe should easily be the grandest and the most sought after cafe in the heart of Mumbai. This place is usually teaming with youth who come for a quick beer and some authentic starters. We had to wait for atleast 30 minutes to book a seat for ourselves. We had ordered french toast and fries. The desert we prefer is falooda. The taste of falooda is different than most of the other places we have been. The cafe is busy most of the day and stretching into midnight. A very old clock and some rare paintings on the wall are a sure attraction. A decent sized meal for 2 should make you poorer by atleast 500 bucks, but it is worth the money.

“Too hyped!!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

It's a nice cafe, with a lot of old world charm - photos on the walls, old fashioned furniture etc. recent history is of course the terrorists of the Mumbai attacks ate here then shot clients when asked for the bill!!! Sadly, the cafe is soon busy that one can never linger to chat with the waiters. Lots of foreigners, good food, HUGE portions - I would say a must do when in Mumbai!!!

“A must do”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

You cannot visit Mumbai without a visit to this historical cafe...stepping off the busy streets straight into an equally busy and buzzing place...very efficient although you may have to wait for a table...food basic but good and beer on tap!

“Busy restaurant”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

A must visit if you have read the book Shantram although it has a lot more history than that, the food was good and they sell a wonderful selection of cakes, you can also get a decent cup of coffee here
