This cafe easily has the best Kahwa tea and Coffee in Leh. Worth a visit just for this. The food was ok and the service is a little ditzy. But still a good place to sit down with a book.

Yama Coffee House is easily one of the better, if not the best coffee house in Leh. The staff is quite friendly, service is timely, and the place is constantly improving. In addition to the coffee, the menu is expansive with a number of baked goods, which usually sell out by the end of the day. The owner, Namgial, is... More

This is one of the best coffee shops at Leh. Very good staff, excellent Lavazza coffee, outdoor and indoor seating, and a very aesthetically done up place. We were in Leh 7 days, and went to Yama Cafe every day without fail. NOT EXAGGERATING!!
