Darjeeling Cafe

in Varkala

With giant dreamcatchers and tiered candlelit tables strewn with flower petals, Darjeeling is always packed with travellers. Snappy, cheerful service complements cocktails (₹250; with metallic straws), fresh juices, good coffee and an alluring global menu: chapati rolls, smoothie bowls, masala dosa, pan-Indian curries, banana-leaf fish, and enormous platters of paneer or fish tikka with chips and salad.
