Cafe Budan, located just down the road in Mcleodganj, serves probably the best coffee in Dharamsala, and maybe all over India. The staff are wonderful and nice, the food is excellent, but the greatest thing about the place is it's atmosphere. Highly recommend going there.

One of the strong points of this place is that it is open pretty early in the morning. And the food they serve is also pretty good.

Stopped by at Cafe Budan while walking back to Kora House. The coffee was nice (though I liked Jimmy's a trifle better) and the carrot n cheese cake was yummy and out of this world!! I would surely recommend the cake!
