Every time I visit this place I make a point I eat at least one bun pav. It's been years they are famous for it though the quality has degraded over years. It's more famous for goan traditional snacks like Mitch, bhaji oav, bun pav, wada and special chai. It's crowded and not a place where you want to relax.

A quick stop restaurant serving local delicacies. Make sure you reach early or else the fare sells out quickly. The service is super quick with a smile on face. The batata wada has its own unique charm. Must try items are the mirchi bhaji ( chilly fritters ) and the sweet makhan pedha.

I had Special Tea and Punjabi Samosa. The fragrance of the tea was itself the first proof of its delicious taste. The menu is so cost effective. You can full your tummy with snacks in just 60-70 bucks. The best tea of my life

I had breakfast in Cafe Aram. The bhaaji was starting to smell stale(maybe they mixed old one) The food items are way too expensive compared to the aesthetic of the restaurant. The tables and benches aren't comfortable. The guy who sits at the counter sucks at maths(almost gave me 10rs less one time) Overall. Cafe Aram isn't good. Its just... More

This is the place to go to relish goan vegetarian evening snacks. They have a varieties of bhaji pao.. Follow that with buns or makhan pedha and wash it all down with good old tea. Yummy, tummy filling and very easy on the pockets.

I really don't know how old Cafe Aram really is. The place is always full of people, mostly locals, who come snacks and tea. The Bhaji-Pao (curry with goan bread) with Mirchi (batter-fried green chilli) taste like the one that's made in Goan homes. The tea they serve reminds me of the tea you get in those old Irani hotels... More

Nice place for a cup of tea and local Goa Bhaji and Pav. Also try their mirchi Bhjji or samosa with the coconut chutney. Wish they used sugar syrups for the fresh lime soda This place is always crowded, but still the service is quick. 50 rupees is enough to fill up ur tummy. They are closed on Sunday.

Another old-timers joint, this corner 'cafe' is highly popular with the locals. Almost all the items on the menu are time-tested. I usually opt for the mirchi and the chav (milky tea).
