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.

The Cafe has Retro 60's ambience. The Interior is in Bright red and white.The lighting is warm and music romantic. The wall's are clad in Monroe and Kennedy moments. The Food is Exotic and 100% Organic. It is value for money. The Service is very Good. The Cafe also has a very selective collection of Books.

This venue is one of the chosen few hubs in Mangalore city which is a must visit. Located well within city perimeter at Balmatta, the cafe calls for a treat with respect to the breakfast served. The American breakfast with a combination of Belgian chocolate waffles are a must try.

College students & youngsters with disposable income are their main patrons. The seats start to feel a bit uncomfortable, after a while. Their breakfast items are the best However the advantage is that they have a common kitchen with a sister concern, "Simbly South" which in my view has a better menu. Luckily both restaurants are not mutually exclusive
