Located adjacent to Ahmedbad ni Gufa, this is a quick snack grab option for the visitors coming to art gallery. Being near to Gujarat university, it remains buzzed with students. One cant expect to get a simple cold drink over here but one can savour on different variants of Cold and hot coffee along with the snacks.

We visited the small zen by judges bungalow, we loved the coffee. Very cute little place. We really enjoyed just chilling there. We also visited the one by the Gufa and that was good too. The setting is very nice. Highly recommended.

Zen cafe has a lot of things working in its favour, good food, open air ambience, amdawad ni gufa( another must visit) and a wonderful art gallery to visit for all the art lovers. It's a colourful place imbued with art and culture for anyone who wants to enjoy an chill evening with friends. A must visit.

Tired of sitting in CCDs and sipping a cup of coffee? The awesome place to hang out under open sky and fresh air is Zen Cafe. The food isn't of such good quality and tasty but the place to hang out is awesome and worth going.

Zen café is within the Hussain-Doshi gufa premises, this adds to the charm of the place and makes it lively and vibrant. The creativity and grandeur of the surroundings adds the right amount of zing to the place...you see people from various backgrounds hanging out. The Gallery next to it also adss to the flavour...Must visit for creative and nature... More

Peaceful, relaxed, open air and like a hidden - woods.... I've always been going to Zen since ever I remember ! Good company is all you need....it has a calming effect on me whenever I go to zen ! On the food front, I haven't really tried much... But their iced teas, coffees and mocktails are kind of decent !... More

This is in the campus of Ahmedabad College outside the Ahmadavad ni Gufa, and is essentially a glorified college canteen with self service. We had cappuccino and chai and both were typical Indian style milk based concoctions in spite of specifying that we wanted very little milk. Milk is the middle name in this part of the country that is... More

This place used to be a quite little cafe good for friends to meet, however has become a show off pace for a while now. Food quality is decent. Mocktails are good. The location of this place is fantastic. Right in middle of all colleges.
