Located on the Calangute-Anjuna road in Arpora. If coming from the Siolim end of the road, cross the Club Cabana turn and come straight. Cae Balaji is to your left. If coming from Calangute, cross the left turn towards Anjuna and head straight. The joint is to your right, about 200m down the road.
Cafe Balaji was started near Anjuna beach, by Deepak who hails from Solapur, about a year ago. This is a unique joint because it is one of the few, if not only, outlets that serve Maharashtrian food. Deepak decided to start his own joint after his experiences with guests at the guesthouse he managed – they often complained of not having enough choice - and a realization that tourists often wish for comfort food and a change from the typical English-style breakfasts that are available at most joints. Café Balaji serves fresh poha, misal pav, bhaji pav, puri bhaji etc. from 7 AM – 10 PM. It also delivers food, including breakfast, in a radius of 10 km, which is a boon given that you can order fresh, wholesome breakfast without leaving the comfort of your hotel.

- Biryani can also be ordered by weight.
- For getting food delivered, especially breakfast, call 30-40 mins in advance.
