It’s a cute cafe kind of a place with comfortable casual seating, small and cozy. The decor is very nice. The place offers good food and amazing cold coffee & smoothies. Their herbed veggies with rice dish and pesto pasta were very delicious.

Excellent and cozy place but hospitality by staff should be improved. When we went it was weekday and so empty, there was match going on, and staff were stuck to TV than responding to us. Not much care given.

Hi Sumeet, As Devinder said, we also didn't ask about egg less dishes as we all are non-vegetarian. But you can ask them to make without egg I suppose. Enjoy, Simontini
