The cafe has seen a lot of legends, from directors like Satyajit Ray to Anurag Basu but what you can definitely see from the cafe while having breakfast is the snow-covered mountain range of the Himalayas. The cafe is a two-storeyed one, where the ground floor is the takeaway centre. The first floor has two types of sitting, indoor and outdoor.
Though the view is equally amazing through the windows but brace yourself when you actually sit facing the range in the open air rooftop section for the beautiful view. The mornings are the best time to visit because there are higher chances of a clear sky for a beautiful view of the entire range.
Coming to the food, the tea is amazing. It's a fine quality Darjeeling tea of Nathmull's. The English breakfast is much hyped, with salamis and sausages. The serving quantity and quality are both very full filling, can easily be shared by two. The egg toasts are also a crowd favourite.
Remember, it's a famous place with a lot of rush. So to occupy best seats start early in the morning or you might have to stand in long queues.
