Ben’s Cafe is a dose of awesomeness in the really dry (meaning unhappening) Borivali-Dahisar stretch (near where the place is located). It is actually a hit and miss outlet if you do not know it exists. The cafe is not really a cafe, more so a small shop where the kitchen exists and an adjoining shop with a few chairs. The best part about the place is the tables set up outside in the evening! That is the time to visit it and enjoy some good company and delicious food.
Ben’s Cafe has been here for quite some time now serving really good food consistently, however, the prices have recently skyrocketed! They also home deliver, and that is one option most people opt for. A must try here are their burgers and rolls.
Veg. Double Decker Burger was delicious. Soft buns, and yummy patty with loads of veggies and mayonnaise. A no-nonsense burger, which is worth a try definitely!
Pasta options here are really good too. Pasta Alfredo is delicious and creamy, with loads of veggies and nicely dolled up in cheese! Yummmm..!!
They serve a variety of omelettes, and you must check the specials menu for the ones they are serving when you visit.
Mexican Omelette is really good, with loads of green chillies and onions and tomatoes on the sides.
The pictures might not do justice to the food, but the cooks here do justice to the preparations!! The only problem being the fact that they take their own sweet time to get your food. But the wait is generally worth it!
Cold Coffee is more cold coffee water and less milk, completely skippable. I am surprised how they can mess this one up!
We also tried Panna Cotta, and although it may look average in the picture below, it was delectable! They have various options like blueberry, strawberry, etc. We tried the strawberry one and it was really good… perfect consistent texture and yummy strawberry flavour.
Overall Experience:The food at Ben’s cafe is delicious. The service is slow but friendly. Ambience does not apply much here, non-AC room with a few tables and some outside seating.
The Battle: If you ever happen to visit this place in the evening and grab a table outside, getting up to leave is difficult. It is just pleasant and quiet!
