The cafe has a lovely setting: a few tables, comfortable couches, plants and books lying around.

The food seems geared towards foreign tourists (ex: all veggies and fruits are washed in filtered water +iodine). The menu features some rare Indian options like idli or kitchiri but mainly western food and fresh veggies salads. They also have many drinks (coffee, tea et ).

The food came very quickly and was good without being exceptional. But it s nice for anyone looking for an oil/spice free option or uncooked and safe to eat vegetables.

They also have a small shop downstairs.

To sum up: a very peaceful place where you can get a healthy, fresh and clean breakfast/lunch.

Really tasty food, had the hummus and Pitta and it was full of flavour, loved the lemon drink, not too sugary. Quick service, friendly staff, and a good price too!

Just finished our first lunch there, and it was so nice to eat some good okd-fashioned "hippy" food, like back home. Pitas, fresh chopped veg and grains, nice flavors, not spicy... after 2 weeks in india, this absolutely hit the spot they wash all their veggies in an iodine solution that makes it all safe to eat for foreigners. Yummy and reassuringly familiar, I highly recommend it.

We came here after visiting the Assi Ghat for sunrise. The food was healthy and fresh but the teas were the real stand out for us. There is a wide variety of teas available and because I was sick the detox tea and cold tea worked a charm! Others seemed to be enjoying the impressive chocolate pancakes.

Loosely family run cafe that’s worth a visit!
