Here at Kuku Coffee Shop we pride ourselves on our friendly service and real coffee. By real we mean we know the difference between an espresso, a cappuccino, and a latte. Why not come put our knowledge to the test and enjoy real ground coffee served to your taste. If coffee is not your style, please enjoy our tea and cold beverage selection including lassis and milkshakes. All our teas are made with fresh ingredients and our masala chai is our own recipe. If food is what you are after please come with a bit of extra time or let us take your order in advance because all our ingredients come fresh from the market and need to be collected special for you. We also have to offer a beautiful sunset view of Jaisalmer from our rooftop. Here at Kuku Coffee Shop we aim to please and do not want you simply as customers, but as friends. Everyone who spends a bit of time here becomes family and we wouldn't have it any other way.

It's not the coffee or food that makes this place special

Unfortunately we only discovered this nice little place on our last day in Jaisalmer, after looking for a place to spend the morning and afternoon until our train would depart. This place is owned by Kuku (duh!) and his brother Toni. I'm not a big coffee drinker, so I cannot tell you, if the coffee... read more

Amazing little café with a lovely rooftop and a stunning view. I stayed five days in Jaisalmer and went to Kuku Coffee Shop every day. The way Kuku and his brother Tony welcomed me was unbelievable - they are both really genuine, kindhearted and generous people. Their coffee is very good and Kuku is really proud to serve REAL expressos,... More

We visited place after reading the reviews from TripAdvisor. First of all we had to search this place for bout 20 mins inside the fort and the navigation showed wrong path. The cafe is nothing. There is a small room where one person performs all the jobs and sitting is upstairs inside the fort. The price is OK but not... More

A simple place to have a cup of coffee/chai.... Honest people and full of warmth. The place overlooks the fort...what a beautiful view of the walled fort where 3000 families reside

Beautiful beautiful beautiful hidden gem! Def go there and have a chat with Tony the owner. Makes great coffee and because of its windy rooftop, it's the only place where you won't get a heatstroke!

Situated on the western wall of the fort, Kuku cafe is a delicious and great place. They have real coffee and the sweets are great. The owners are funny and polite, quite worth a coffee there just to hear the place's name story from the brothers. We've had the honor to be invited inside their home and it was quite... More

Real coffee, great calm place and absolutely amazing guys running this place. So friendly people won't meet every day. My girlfriend had birthday and these guys could arrange really nice cake with her nickname on it within two hours. They were helpful even in planning our next plans. And all these was happening while enjoying great cappuccino and espresso.... Can... More

The cafe has a great view and the owners are great to hang out with on the rooftop. The cappuccino and Chi are the best I've had so far. I didn't try the food but others were happy. I will miss coming here.

Great coffee with a lovely view in this small and unassuming spot tucked away inside the fort. Don't mind the wait, it's worth it!
