Sadly place has changed since I knew it earlier ... AC and posh now! Bhaji puri is different and lacks the tea time buzz it has in yesteryears! Anyways would still stop by nevertheless!

When I ate here it was full of locals even at 3pm, which I think says something.The food came quickly, was very tasty, and very cheap. Street food style but in a cafe.

one of the oldest breakfast places in town. The quality has been maintained from decades but the quantity perhaps has reduced in recent times. Do try their mirchi-bhajjis.

The breakfast here with the buns and the bhaji's are just too good to pass. Just make sure that when you decide to go, bring a full appetite to this place. The tomato salad bhaji is awesome. Dont...

Had their aloo bhajji with poori. Was one of the best i had in recent memory. Nothing fancy about the place, go for simple food and coffee. It, like most cafes in Panjim, is closed on Sundays.

Though a pure veg cafe, it offers good Indian delicacies including main course meals and street food meals... Varieties of shakes, cold coffees & other drinks add to the experience. Place has enough space and is good for family get together on a trip to Goa. It is almost since 70 years in to the business, very decent on price... More
