Have had better tasting & reasonably priced food at lesser known places. Beats me why anyone would go to a place which is cramped, has wobbly furniture & absolutely arrogant staff.

Beware!!!!! The food is ridiculous Service is pathetic no one listens Wifi is only the thing good. We ordered veg and chicken Thupka, veg momos and veg lafa. The spices used weren't balanced Tasteless in thupka. The veggies in momos and dips (not fresh) wasn't...good enough and veg lafa was tasteless with small quantity of hummus (tangy) was used. I highly don't recommend this place as thereare a lot of cafes which you explore.More

The cafe was full when we arrived. So had to wait for like 10 min to get our seats. We went there to try out yak cheeze pizza after a high recommendation from one of my friends. And I was excited to see the crowd...there. Though it didn't live up to the expectations. We ordered one doughnut and one yak cheeze pizza both of which were very dry. Pizza was filled with cheese only and we had to ask for extra toppings. Pizza base wasn't great either - looked like the ones which we get from any general store. We also noticed guests from few other tables leaving their meals unfinished. I would probably recommend Rabsal cafe if you want to have a good Pizza instead of Gesmo.More

Worst and tasteless food, coffee ever. Tasless juices, stale bread it was just a horrific experience. Don't judge it by rating, looks fake to me.

Good food and decent service. One of the few places in Leh where you get great breakfast choices at decent prices and good taste. Traveller vibes. Ask for Apricot jam and Yak cheese for a taste of the locally made fare. Decent seating. The downside...as in most places in Leh is that the washroom is the let down.More

We went there twice in 10 days. The calzone was yummy and so was the ginger honey tea. We tried some ladakhi breakfast and ladakhi tea. Their baked goods are scrumptious as well.
