If you have to eat one place every day, make it here, and you'll never be sick. All the food tastes so balanced. It's also well affordable- and there is even bottomless boels of kichadi!

A place to relax and feel a bit at home. Good breakfast, coffe and ice cream! I also tried their cold teas and citrus drink which is gold during the hot days-good wifi and friendly staff.
