“Sit back, relax...”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

What a great chill-out zone. Staff are friendly and service is great. Food is delicious and reasonably price. Gotta say we were craving for burgers at one stage and opted for the Chicken Burger and sure enough, it did not dissapoint! Definitely give this place a visit if you're in McLeod Ganj

“Laidback”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Black Tent Cafe is the perhaps most laidback cafe Ive been to in McLeod Ganj. It's a good place to sip in some coffee, read, have a light bite (not a full-fledged meal).

“Great Coffee!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Love that they open up early, and the coffee is some of the best in town. The decor is funky, seating is laid back, and the staff and owners pure Tibetan. They have tasty food, and throw Tibetan concerts and other culture related events. Cool scene for sure.

“Best tea stop in town, but not for food...”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We highly recommend Black Tent for their wide selection of loose leaf and other tea and for their habit of refilling your large mug with hot water as many times as you like. Comfy chair, table, and floor seating options combined with the bottomless tea and friendly, colorful atmosphere make this an excellent place to spend an afternoon having a chat with a friend or reading. They also make a milkshake that is more like the blended ice cream drink that you would usually expect--most restaurants in town will give you something like flavored milk, but here it's the real deal.

They have an assortment of food items on the menu, but we have found the sandwiches and omelettes to be unexciting and relatively small portion sizes for the price. There are lots of better options for food around town, but it's hard to beat the tea and the atmosphere of Black Tent, and they don't seem to mind if you hang around for a while. There are always Tibetans hanging out here playing cards or music as well, and on Wednesday evenings they host a traditional music performance.
