Location: shop location is quite typical exact location is OUTSIDE the ATM of PNB, which is inside the Katra of Raghu Ganj Building. Katra Raghuganj is located in Midst of Gujarat Namkeen and Sudarshan Shop.

Ambience: Jain Coffee House which is difficult to locate as it’s not been renovated for a couple of decade not having any sign board. The cafe has an olden-time kind of door and the interior of coffee house gave me a feel of cafés of mid 70s of Bollywood movies. It is perfect location for retro movies.

Sandwich: The basic ingredients of each fruit sandwich are seasonal fruit, white butter, home-made fresh paneer and sugary kesar chutney. The mango sandwich, for instance, is available year round. On demand They also serve toasted sandwiches with a simple filling of tomatoes and cucumber. If you are ordering a sandwich by default they would serve a fruit sandwich. First a slice of soft white bread is spread with marmalade. Then some pieces of fresh paneer, butter, a handful of sliced grapes, a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds and slices of seasonal fruit.
