Inside the City Palace complex, this casual café, offering well-made Indian and western cuisine, is a perfect post-museum stop—sit outside if you like to people-watch. It's a large place with a traditional ambience—outside seating is under Rajasthani umbrellas. The menu emphasizes standard Continental café fare, such as salads, sandwiches, pizza, and pasta; try the yummy "mochachillo" (espresso shake) for a caffeine kick. Beer and an extensive variety of international
and Indian wines are also available. Pizzas, lightly-spiced chicken biryani, bacon-filled rigatoni, and desserts are recommended. Service is cheerful and courteous. If you have tickets for the sound-and-light show, you can watch it over dinner (Rs. 400; reservations required) on the patio; if you want dinner but don't have show tickets, you'll have to wait until the café reopens at 9 pm.
