Warm food in cold weather

Food was really served hot though the weather was cold and no heater inside. The quality was good too.

We trekked to the Tiger's nest in June 2015 and were told the cafeteria marks the halfway point. On reaching the cafe, we helped ourselves to tea and biscuits at a price. We also booked lunch on our return but it did not seem reasonable by the cost. All in all, a pleasant cafe for tea and rest....

Cafeteria simply loots money , there is absolutely no control on the price. They ask for 75% more than printed price. Located on the halfway mark to Taktsang monastery and good place to take some rest . But I suggest travellers to carry their own food from Paro market.

Must stop place if you are visiting Tiger's Nest, From the cafeteria you can see the monastery and the view is just breathtaking. The food is good too though the service is a bit slow. My only Gripe is that the charges for basic food items (tea,cofee etc) is almost thrice than the usual charges.

Perfectly placed to stop for a coffee on your way up to the monastery. Relax a while if you can because you are entitled to a break and the views are pretty impressive.

This place is located about 60% way on the trek to Tiger Nest Monestary. The view is really great. It is operated by Bhutan Tourism Corporation. They offer a great resting place after an arduous trek, nice coffee, but super expensive @ 120 INR. On our way back we planned to have lunch there, but it seems you need to... More

The cafe is situated half through the trek to Taktsang monastery. It is a good place to rest awhile and have a cup of tea/coffee. The prices are definitely high but considering the difficulty involved in getting the raw materials and preparing at that location, it's okay to pay. The quality is excellent and the place is well maintained. One... More

Its a great place, and a life savor for people who are hiking up on foot. You can sit here and relax, and move fwd. Most of the people return back from here :)
