Located prominently this cafe offers great varieties of bakery items as well as coffee options... The drinks are good at taste and you can spend a quality time chit chatting in the awesome ambience of this cafe... Highly recommended...

We did dine at Tao Cafe. The food was good, it has a nice seating area outside where you can have your food and enjoy the nice weather as well.

Tao Cafe is sure one place which may have been a happenning place in years gone by. However, despite its vantage location, it has started losing its charm.

Hey all, not really a review of the restaturant as it ha been closed for the last 9 months as a result of the big floods that swept through Kashmir last year. We tried to visit on 16th May 2015, easy to find but completely boarded up and out of action. Hopefully they will be able to re-open soon.
