“The location and ambience is great but not the food...”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

I heard a lot about the continental food they serve and reached on a Sunday to check it out... And unfortunately it was a horrible experience for me...
I dint expect the food to be perfectly European but at least tasty in some form like the way mexican bhel and pasta is done in Mumbai... But the food was a big disappointment. It was tasteless and cold and thankfully NOT stale...
Its a good place to sit for couples in the Lymo area though... Coffee (Cappuccino) was good and all other drinks that people around were having looked yummy...

“Great Coffee!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The coffee was fantastic and they even made a little Christmas tree on the foam. It was Christmas Eve ... how special! The crepes were nice, but could have been crispier.

Cheap, cheerful and full of variety. Check out whats happening locally too. The cakes are good too as are the burgers and pizzas.

“Good food”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

If u are craving for some continental food that doesn't put a whole in your pocket, this would be the perfect place to go. Most customers are students. Ambience is average. There is a whole lot of display of art, mostly done by local artists but there is one I couldn't understand. The one which was made out of cans and bamboos and some netting of some sort.
Food is good, pastas being my favourite. The combo meals are also one of the things I order most.
Drinks are meagre, again temperature of the cold beverage being warmer than it should be. Coffees are excellent, lattes being the best according to me.
Service is awkward. U don't always get a warm welcome. U are stared at when u order. Overall hygiene is good but I doubt the couch in the corner gest any regular cleaning after each change of customer. And whatever happened to the live performances on weekends?

“great food”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great flaky pastry chicken pies and wonderful chocolate eclairs, not sweet and perfectly light. The coffee one day was great but not so good the next day.
