The cashew and almond triangles are very good. It is hidden in a little sidestreet, because the mainroad is under construction.

Pastries sit under the counter all day and gradually dry out. Our cinnamon roll was a dry bready eat. No diet coke either. Really couldn't see what the fuss is all about. Try somewhere else.

It's not worth coming here in the late afternoon. There's just a bunch of fairly skanky leftovers available, which have presumably been sitting there on display all day. I perused the available selection and then decided I really didn't want to risk taking a hit. Probably it's a lot better in the morning when everything is fresh.

Try the potato cheese burger it's nice n filling wit... More

One of the popular and tasty bakeries in Leh. While it was owned by German and then a Ladakhis, right now it's run by a Punjabi. We had an Almond cake followed by a Coffee cake. We also got ourselves a generous portion of Yak cheese from there. It is quite delicious if you can overcome the slightly strong smell... More

Probably our 2nd favourite place in Leh. Mainly because they had a kid friendly menu. Stay away from the pastries, not because it's bad but we couldn't find any good pastries in Leh. Maybe it's the altitude that makes bread and cakes hard. The lasagna was a favourite for the kids, and so were their pancakes.

Fresh cookies, cakes, rolls with robust flavours which keep you going there for more.. A must - visit in Leh. Do try out the Lemon Cinammon roll and walnut cake.

Excellent for baked products, specially take away. The place is too crowded to have a seated meal. Its good idea to pack cakes and cookies on long trips.

I was so looking forward to treating myself to the cookies and savories after having read the amazing reviews. I had to ask around quite a few times before I located the shop in a back lane, looking bare and desolate. After buying some stuff I inquired from the attendant about the lack of variety and the general sorry state... More
