What Makes It Awesome?

Been fascinated by the amazing Darjeeling scenes from the movie Barfi? Always wanted a vacation like that? We will tell you exactly where Ileana D' Cruze was having her breakfast with her friend when Barfi came looking for her. It's Keventers, more than 100 years old heritage cafe in Darjeeling.

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.

What Could Be Better?

Space is the only constraint in this beautiful place. We all wish they had more accomodation. Also, few items are a bit extra oily which is again a note of caution.
