Their expresso coffee is a treat for you in the cold weather. The food quality and service needs improvement, specially their Indian cuisine. The waiters vanish into the oblivion after servicing you once and you might have a hard time ordering more chapatis/ rice once your original order is served.

We went here for breakfast following a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. It was distinctly disappointing. The coffee was nothing short of nasty and the fried eggs were sadly overdone. The buttered toast was simply crisp bread sandwiched with thick pats of butter which we spread ourselves. Don't come here for continental style breakfast if you are hoping for something good quality and tasty.

We should note that the Indian breakfast items such as dosas did look more appetising if you can stomach spice in a morning.

It is a good experience to pamper your test buds with some excellent views on the mall in the evening. This is a right place to do just that. They serve good coffee and parathas. South Indian options are also good as per North Indian standards.

Sandwiches and burgers are average but the coffee indeed was good enough to fill in the gap.
