Not a place , you can go repeatedly to ! The quality of food has gone down as I mentioned in my earlier review as well. The omlette was bitter and the chicken soup very average. The atmosphere is very noisy ! Its more of a college get together place now. Has lost all its earlier charm. Time to move... More

Went for lunch today with my friends . The chef roshan was understanding and happily took note of our dietary requirements. Vivek, the guy who was looking after us, was great too. In a nutshell, full points for service. Now about food. Burgers were tasty but the bun should have been toasted a bit to ensure that it did not... More

  A sweet and cheerful cafe with its lyptus wood decor, montage of images on walls and cozy seating arrangement, Backpackers turns out excellent pancakes, sandwiches and salads, along with very good coffee, and baked goodies in the morning.

No matter what we ordered in chicken it had a stink ... seemed like the chicken had been stored in the freezer since for more than a week . Only thing good was The coffee and the vegetables that they serve with the main dishes .

It was a Sunday & decided to go for Brunch. Although sector 35 outlet was the nearest however, based on the rating on Zomato we chose to go to Sector 9 joint. As I stepped in, the small cozy sitting, rustic décor attracted me. Specially the vintage model vehicles, placed on the shelves on the wall, carefully carelessly placing of... More

Born and in Chandigarh all my life, it was a huge surprise to be in a true blue blood café. The music was gentle and the sound of conversation filled the Café. Almost everyone in the café was more into conversation rather than 'cell phone gazing'! The café has a wonderfully warm ambience. And the food was equally warm and... More

One could almost say that I visit Chandigarh to be able to have breakfast at my favourite restaurant of all time. Many is the time I have reached Chandigarh early....and have waited patiently outside this cafe, waiting for it to open. Even today I was the first one into the cafe......and have enjoyed a truly magnificent breakfast. To be honest....it... More
