Our 5th floor café is the perfect place to relax and take in the stunning scenery while sipping on a cup of chai. And if you need to get some work done, our charming balcony workspaces will provide you with the inspiration you need to be productive. But that's not all - our large shaded terrace above the café is the ultimate hangout spot.

We've even added some beautiful metal floral wall pieces to bring a touch of nature inside. And did we mention that we're located only 500 mts. from the Laxman Jhula?
