It's a nice place in Mangalore, you get really good food, but its a little expensive. The waffles here are really great and so are the beverages. We also took a pasta, it was nice.

The food is very nice and the service is good. Pastas and salads are recommended.. The advantage is that this is probably one of the only cafe's which has a bar. The service is excellent.
