Good for a meal not really for a coffee break though.

This is the same place that came up way back in 1998-2000 era and back then itself they were clear that their clientele was not local population and they continue to do that even today. We have had couple of functions and events here.

I recollect you mentioning that you take Hassan Ring road these days and that means I cannot recommended you Hotel Raama located at Thanneruhalla where BM road forks out for Belur.

Hoysala food park is good for lunch or dinner when you have loads of time but certainly not for coffee.

Since you take Hassan Ring road, you cross Dairy circle and from here there are few places with very short detour that can offer good coffee for you around Prithvi Theatte area.

Nothing to write about, last time i saw them baking Idly on plastic sheet(Cancerous). Better to avoid.

If you going through ring-road you can eat here - Vishnu Udupi hotel

Um, I think you are talking about Hoysala Village resort, whose food is very good. I once had a buffet lunch for ₹600 there. Hoysala Food park is a restaurant (new one), about a km away.

Yeah, I have seen that. Being from Udupi I feel weird walking into restaurant's named Udupi.

The same thing is available in Malnad Cafe on the same road. This is about 5kms after Kottigehara if you are coming from Charmadi. I always buy from there.

Yes. Realised it later . This place too has changed names. Earlier this was just like another shady restaurant run by saw mill owners from Belur. Later due to demand they converted it and tried to make it look like a proper "restaurant" but it still is not.

This is definitely not a place I would recommend as it has no such USP to offer anyway.

I hardly used to see anyone there but off late, this seems to have gained in popularity. Last time on my way back, Hoysala Food Park was quite crowded but we ended up going to the Hoysala resort.

Absolutely no good, we did this stretch on a run from Chennai to Mangalore and it was a nightmare to drive with rain and after dark. Thanks a lot for this suggestion on Charmady route, will take this on our way back this weekend.

Hello Fellow BHPians,
On your recommendation did BNG UDP via Charmadi, Fantastic Roads. Might have had a cumulative of ~5Kms of Potholes ridden roads and they were after the right turn from guruvayankere until karkala. Good Roads, Toll Free, Clean Air and fresh coffee makes this road a delight. Had Good BF at Paakshaala. Its about a KM ahead of the ever crowded Swathi Delicacy and food was very tasty. Have a large parking area and big clean restrooms. U have to take a right while traveling towards hassan but its right at the highway median divider. Ibanni Cafe after mudigere cross had real good akki rotis and filter coffee . Over all i would say, for time being charmadi route to udupi is pleasure to drive, time saving, cost efficient ( no tolls ) and nice on tummy.

TIA
I travelled on 10/30, Saturday morning, but couldn't enter any popular restaurant due to over crowding. Started from BG road around 5:50AM and reached Udupi via charmadi at 2 PM with multiple short breaks. Roads were good overall except few rough patholes.

Guys,

Planning to visit Mangalore on coming Sunday with my family (2 - 3 kids).
As per the recent reports by BHP'ians will be taking BLR -> Hassan -> Charmady -> Belthangady -> Bantwal -> MLR route.

Planning to leave BLR (from whitefield) by 5 - 5:30 am. Would be stopping at Paakashala for breakfast (by 8:30 - 9 am) and then Ibbani Cafe (12 PM) for quick coffee break.

Does this plan look okay ?
Any place after Bantwal where we can stop for a lunch halt ? Would prefer open space & clean washrooms.
Would be returning on Wednesday. Does the same route make sense ? We wish to be in BLR before 6 PM. What would be good time to leave from MLR ?

Just answering your query on your time to leave Mangalore - Would say 11:30 AM would be ideal taking into account couple of pit stops.

If you are leaving Mysore at 3:00am, you will reach Madikeri by 5:15am. I don’t see any problem there. The roads are little patchy till Hunsur, they get better after that. If you are looking for a breakfast point, Santrupthi Veg is a good place with parking. Mangalore buns are very good there.
