If you can steal your eyes away from the ancient architectural marvel that is the Stepwell, the Café also offers an excellent vantage point looking out over the famous Stepwell Square, and above to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, and beyond in to the bustle of life and the indigo-brushed blue rooftops of the famed Walled City of Jodhpur. An absolute must visit in Jodhpur.

Food and Drink is served on all three floors. The Interiors of the Café were designed by V. Sunil and Mohit Jayal of Weiden & Kennedy and Motherland fame, with the help of Askhat Bhatt of Architectural Dicipline; who wanted to create an atmosphere and a visual feast of the very best of Jodhpur combined with a swanky modern day flourish.
