Description
Stop by for espresso based coffee at one of our cafes or come over for a meal served by our pleasant staff. At our stores you will find great products for sale too which are made in-house by our manufacturing unit in Delhi. You can smell our home baked cakes from far and soon we'll be serving homemade ice cream as well. In Leh our meals consist of organic veggies, true to the spirit of Ladakh where nature still rules. Sit on our balcony in the holy city of Varanasi and sip some of India's best coffee while you watch Indian life go by. Stop by for some hot and spicy chai at our manufacturing unit in Old Delhi. We love visitors!
