The food is very good. I was skeptical after reading the reviews, but the food is actually very good. You get local kumaoni food. The service is very good. It’s a good trek up but worth it

This café serves vegetarian Kumaoni cuisine and charges Rs. 900 per person. Service and staff are good. Food is pretty average. View is beautiful. The café serves only Lunch buffet and closes at 4pm and you need climb up for 1 km to reach the...café so I wouldn't recommend this place for parents.More

This Cafe is located in Mehragaon. About 6 km/15 minutes of drive from the Bhimtal Lake. To reach there you need to reach a checkpoint with car(you can call them for directions, my suggestion is better do!) and after a point you'll have to walk...about 15 minutes uphill trek. It's not a difficult trek, but conscious of age, be sure you tell all people going with you to wear something that allows you to walk uphill comfortably, preferably full length bottoms and shoes! After reaching there, we met the most friendly and courteous staff! A beautiful greeting and then we entered the cafe, attaching pictures below for references. The cafe has been strategically well placed for astounding views from all directions - added some pictures of different views too. The food structure is a buffet, it's a per person priced plate place. We went in July, 2021, vary of covid there were slots to pre-book for 2 hours and then go, so my recommendation is definitely to confirm on reservation(Pre/Post-Coivd)! (Or, you don't want to go far and trek uphill to be said 'we are booked' errr. The thali had many regional- seasonal delicacies to indulge in! They serve Non-Veg too, however, we were majority Vegetarians, so we didn't get a chance to try it. Being authentic to Kumaon cuisine and very off-beat for someone new to the place and food type. Overall, it's a definite go if you are in that area. To add on, the cafe is pet friendly.More

Been coming to the cafe since it was just a piece of land , seen jaws build up the same inch by inch ,had not seen a more passionate human than him to work on any project and KFC was his life. The traditional is...carried on by the able Kamal and the village gang and the food is absolutely out of the world. To be honest KFC spoils us to am extent that nowhere else can u then enjoy a kumaoni thaali and that's gauranteed . Do drop in for the lovely food , the ambience , the dogs, the view , the frest air and so so much more , u will be engulfed in Jaws Aura and beautiful legacy he has left behindMore

The Kumaoni Thali is amazing and since it's located on a hilltop, the views are breathtaking! It is recommended to take an SUV as the road is steep but there are parking points from where one can walk 200 to 500 m.

A must do experience starting from the ride to the cafe, the lovely view, the welcome chai, to the perfect Kumaoni meal. I must complement both the owner and the manager in getting the proposition right. A special mention for the warmth and the hospitality...etiquettes.More

Any visit to Bhimtal must include a lunch at this unique cafe managed on behalf of the owners by Kamlesh who is extremely proactive and leaves no stone unturned. The walk up adds to the charm, the views are just spectacular, the food is delightful...and the entire ambience makes it an unforgettable experience. Mr Kamath, who has had an untimely death seems to be missed by all in the team, which goes to show how he has made them a part of the family. Thank you to the team and to Mrs Kamath for adjusting us last minute and the delightful experience.More
