Our group stopped for tea and biscuits on the way up. Bustling with people doing the same, just a few minutes stop to take in the view, use the restroom, and drink a cup of tea.

Lovely patio is perfect for tea and crackers or lunch. If it is chilly, the dining room is quite unusually attractive. The bathrooms here were well maintained.

Nice cosy cafe. Highly priced but I guess it's the only cafe on your trek up to tigers nest n it's understandable once one walks up personally n realises how their inventory must be reaching up. Nice place to relax ,warm up and start your journey again

Its not easy to maintain a cafe this far away from any forms of civilization that too halway up a trek so kudos for the effort. It almost justifies the extremely steep pricing (120 bucks for a cuppa chai). But being one of the only cafetarias enroute you arent exactly spoilt for choice. Decent enough food. spectacular view
