Cozy cafe with freshly cooked food, high quality ingredients, great ambiance. Right in the middle of the mall near the Red Fire Trucks. Look up for the blue building with yellow windows :)

Wake and bake is a hole in the wall place situated in one of the most iconic areas of Mall Road Shimla. The entrance is through a small inconspicuous stairway through which you emerge into this beautiful cozy cafe which has all the old world...charm and manages to capture your attention immediately. I had the Israeli Breakfast with lemon iced tea and my wife had mushroom toasties with an apple cinnamon waffle and coffee. Everything starting from the beverages were exquisitely made with a homely touch which makes the experience here a unique one. This is a favourite haunt of ours and is a place I would recommend to all. The staff is helpful, jovial and sincere and make the experience here better by adding to it their own suggestions. Ricky was our server for the day and recommended some of their best food to us. Thank you wake and bake !More

Overlooking the Mall Road at its widest point in Shimla, W & B was great for chilling. When he's around, the 'chow'runner takes a personal interest in making sure that every person is catered to as they prefer. Spent quite a few hours with my...wife at a window table watching the crowd walk by below. Next day, we popped in again to get a couple of dishes packed for our overnight travel back home. Will defo visit again!More

We just loved this cute little place,the food was great and the staff was also very friendly. The best thing about this place is that you can sit near the window and enjoy your meal while watching the hustle bustle on the mall road. I...would definitely recommend you to try this place.More

Cafe is placed at a good location with decent food to offer. Don’t have enough seating space. Too crammed up. Good place for a small group of 2-3 only. Cannot accommodate large groups. Staff is just average with a need to learn professionalism. They either...overlook the requests or manipulate the same for their benefits.More

Read about this cafe from a site recommending places to visit in Shimla while in the car travelling from Kufri. Definitely glad that we paid a visit. Everything was freshly made, we ordered toasted sandwiches and pizza - the ham and cheese toasted sandwich was...incredible. Much welcomed food for my parents’ visit to India and mum in particular not liking spicy food!! Will definitely visit again if I’m in Shimla!!More
