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 :)

We stopped here for lunch yesterday. The food quality as well the portion size was very good. The food is very tasty and worth coming back for. The chicken soups as well as the Mediterranean dishes were very well prepared.

I happened to visit this cafe during my shimla trip ,and found this place really amazing and cozy. Each item on the menu is prepared with a lot of dedication and particularly each item has its own profound taste of the herbs or spicies concerned....Another thing that i felt good was the coziness , the young crowd that came in seems to blend with each other due to the optimum space with windows that is just sufficient to have talks over tea or coffee. It also has a small balcony sitting at roof that is amazing , sitting at 2nd floor is also gud .Food is little on expensive side but worth it when combined with the ambience, friendliness and time to be spend there. Must visit for relaxing especially when you are tired being walking miles on mall road.More

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
