The best Western coffee in Paharganj. Good breakfast too, but really, just go for the coffee in the morning and sit outside. No toilet though. But they take credit cards - which is helpful sometimes. Clean. And coffee is always good.

We visited Cafe Festa twice and both times the food was really good but the staff were terrible. On our second visit, one member of staff was downright rude to us. Generally, anything you asked of staff was an imposition to them. If you're willing to wait a while for your food (and drink) to arrive, and to experience one... More

I’ve been to India six times and the Café Festa has been one of my regular stops for the past six years. The menu selection ranges from a variety of western dishes to traditional Northern Indian cuisine. Everything I’ve had was delicious. When I am staying in Delhi I almost always eat breakfast here. The service here has always been... More

A thoroughly disappointing meal. Food took seemingly forever to come out & when it appeared it was cold & bland. Staff are like zombies. There are nicer places to dine in the area

We stayed at the hotel across the road twice, and sat at the cafe many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are open early and close late which is a huge advantage. The food was always good as well as the coffee, plus they have free wifi and outdoor seating. We had no problems with the staff and will... More

This small cafe located just off the Main Bazaar is absolutely delicious. We had the Festa Thali plate, which was no doubt one of our best Thali plates during a 2 month trip to India - and well priced too. Unfortunately, our enthusiasm for the restaurant was tempered significantly by the rude behavior of the staff (which a review below... More

This cafe is close to the Hotel Natraj. It has good air con and provides excellent food throughout the day. It is vegetarian and does not serve alcohol. The staff are extremely pleasant and the food is varied and good quality. A very good budget cafe.

I came to cafe Festa only once (and I was staying just across the road) because I was simply underwhelmed with the place in an area with a lot of other good options to eat at. The food was pretty good and prices were reasonable but I felt like the staff had a terrible attitude and were dismissive of me... More

Serving only vegetarian dishes. Small outlet but very nice ambience. Perfect place for spending time. Indeed they have occupied partially space on footpath zone and Travellers like it. Located in laxmi Narain Street, a street just opposite to Imperial cinema Hall

I have seven years of visiting this restaurant (I'm from Russia, but often in Delhi). Great staff and clean kitchen. Very tasty Indian food... and most importantly - real coffee!!! Lovely cafe gives access to Wi-Fi (don't forget to bring a passport). Great location near main Bazar New Delhi. Here are air conditioned. The price on the menu matches the... More
