Yama coffe is the real deal, owned by a very nice Ladakhi guy. Great coffee although the wifi often does not work. The cakes were much nicer than Gesmo but nothing compared to the big cities of course. We liked sitting out there and watching the world go by. Definitely the nicest place in Champsa for coffee and much cheaper... More

It's right by the main road and serves excellent beverages and food as well as emanates very peaceful ambiance. while my... More

Yama Coffee was one of my favorite hangout spots in Leh. I initially went because the owner's other business, Yama Adventures, organized my trek to the Markha Valley. Basically, the cafe is a great location with reliable WiFi (by Leh's standards), serves simple but delicious food at very fair prices, and has super nice employees. It became my go-to chill... More

I really like this place. It's neat and clean and nicely designed. The coffee is good. My friend had a pastry and loved it. It's right on the main Chanspa Road opposite the prayer wheel.

They have decent coffee ( Lavazza ) and a good selection of cakes and cookies . We didn't try it but their breakfast section looked pretty good. While we were in Leh Internet connectivity was an issue at mist hotels and restaurants including Yama .. but Yama was the best of the lot.

Excellent coffee and splendid ambiance. Thats what is Yama Coffee House, Leh, Ladakh, India. I went there couple of times. Just for ambience and coffee. Had a shakshuka with the brown bread option and a couple of extra eggs for at breakfast. Awesome and healthy. Yama has a good collection of exotic teas. This is the probably the best cafe... More
