Snow lion is a comfortable cafe place and I went for breakfast several times. Their set breakfasts are cheap and very good for the price. Wifi is available as well. As with many other places in McLeod Ganj it can fill up so expect to share your table with strangers

Best value in Dharamsala. Family run restaurant, authentic Tibetan food and home ambiance. One dish is enough for a big lunch or dinner and you'll get surprised with the price

Only problem comes when you are an INDIAN family dining in this restaurant & your voice pitch is a bit and sometimes very much higher than the westerners you get frequent stares from the owner who happens...
