Great hangout

While at McLeodganj we hung out a lot at this cafe. The place has a good view & the food is quite cheap. Coffee, green tea and ginger lemon honey tea was good. The chocolate walnut cake was also good but they burnt it while warming it for us. The cafe is a good place to hangout as it is... read more

the coffee with other beverages are pretty good. the food option not really. very oily and made in a very desi way. but has a good al fresco feel to it due to good outside seating space.

Had been there in Dec...so it was pretty chilly and a walk in the market was totally called for. Did not face much trouble to locate this cafe. Loads of foreigners were seated in the outside area of the cafe... food was pretty good - cappuccino, sandwich as well as a crepe...and yum choc pastry... Best part was the free... More

The location is perfect.. very near Dalai Lama temple. It has few outside tables so you can relax and watch the world go by. And also watch the valley. The limited menu has enough options. Coffee, tea and FREE WiFi with good connectivity. No one will rush you. spend as much time as you want and no one will mind.... More

Jimmy the cafe manager is a delight and so are the servers. Their Shakshuka Omlette is a must (if you like eggs) and the way they serve their coffee is nothing but a work of art. I was a happy camper and also ate my last meal there.

Right next to moonpeak espresso, this is a decent place overlooking the roadside market. I had spinach quiche here which was pretty decent. Food is not very expensive and service is good. It was nice sitting over here seeing the activities on the street. A very lively place.
