Quaint little café

We chanced upon this quaint little café on Mall Road. It's a small place occupying space on the first & second floor. Nice comfortable place. Best part was the waffle that we ordered was so light since it was made of buckwheat & flour instead of just all of white flour. It wasn't very sweet, just... read more

Nice spot for hot chocolate and their tiny pizzas. Bacon was heaven. Hot chocolate. Conveniently located on the mall road. Opposite the police headquarters.

Enjoyed the crepe here. They have a cool collection of teapots for sale. Service is prompt and there also seems to be an authentic Himachal meal possibility which we did not explore. Free Wifi and a lovely view make it a nice place to visit

Arrived at 10:30am, an hour after they advertised being open, to be greeted by a man cleaning who instead of staying hello told me abruptly to go upstairs as this area was closed. After which his colleagues on the upper floor told me to go downstairs for the same reason. Eventually looked at the menu for breakfast, which is on... More

Just for 15 days in January and 15 days of February , as it's holiday time and a very lean period of business, we allow our staff to take turns to go on their yearly vacations. Due to this shortage of personnel we open... More

Wake & Bake, is a hidden tiny place out of love and warmth! Good for the food, the ambience, the chess, the interesting mix of locals and backpackers, but best for the escape it provides from the mall and the crowds!

More of a youngsters cafe. Ambinece Is good , the upper stall is a bit clumsy the lower stall is spacious, food is good. The view is amazing. It's a very lively place amidst the most happing place in town. Food is good but not something exceptional. Recommended for friends and family ( lower stall)

We were there on Christmas.. Cafe was fully crowded.. Some local musicians were playing guitar.. We had to wait for sometime to get a table. After waiting for 5-10 minutes we got a table on the window side... We were feeling lucky because other people were still standing and waiting to get a table. We had bacon pizza, club sandwich,and...
