The place offers a nice seating on the Assi Ghat. Menu has Pizza and other stuff but highlight is the Apple pie! The Pie was baked to perfection and had great balance of crunch and sweet. We also ha a pizza which was OK.

Nice view on the ganges in a fairly peaceful corner. The pizzas are nice for India - although we've had better and they're a bit expensive. The real star of this place is the apple pie (with ice cream!)... worth every rupee. Will take you...More
