Great coffee, delicious brownies and lovely service. tucked away for a quiet pick me up, I visited this cafe every day I was visiting Dharamsala.

We were attracted by the sunlight streaming in from the back terrace... this is a little oasis! Amazing coffee, tsampa, porridge and fresh fruit, buckwheat pancakes, toast we were spoilt for choice... our whole group loved what they ordered. The lovely Tibetan owner was delightful...and the servers were polite and very helpful. I definitely recommend breakfast here. We returned the second day!More

I am very particular about my coffee and appreciate a good ambience. I love the clean setting with beautiful wooden seating. I would definitely recommend their Americano and Tibetan bread. My husband enjoyed his latte very much. I am not expecting fast serving as it...is a small family run place. I love their fresh brewed coffee with prepared on order Tibetan bread, served by very nice people. Even though I didn't go there for lunch or dinner, it was frequented by visiting monks and lay tibetans, and I took that as a good sign of decent Tibetan food. Definitely visit it if you want a good fresh brewed coffee and fresh Tibetan bread.More

We had read about this place as good for excellent momos but were disappointed to be served stale reheated, leathery momos in an indifferent manner. Any roadside momo seller makes better momos. Location is good and seating is plentifful, but at the end it is...the food that matters.More

You get decent sandwiches and bakery items. Try out their buckwheat pancake. It is a great place to just sit and enjoy the time.

I went here on the day I arrived to Mcleodganj and we ordered for thukpa and momos thinking that since it is their forte it would be great but I was really disappointed with the momos. They were huge and the filling also not at...all appetising. The thukpa was good. But their breakfast is something worth giving a try. One must definitely try their spanish omlettes and mocha. The pan cakes were too thick and not so great.More

The advantage of this family run hotel is that it is bang on the chowk in Mcleodganj and within walking distance of the bus depot(hardly 5 mins walk). Disadvantage is that there is no service in the rooms at all. Drinking water is not provided....Guests are asked to fill in their own empty bottles from a big Sintex tank at the chowk. The lady at the reception doesn't understand either Hindi or English and only speaks Tibetan. We stayed in a Rs 1000/ per night room on the fourth floor, had to carry our own luggage up the very steep and narrow stairs. Toilet had a persistent smell of urine. Room overlooked the street below. The restaurant turned us away at 9.10 pm because said that they take orders only till 9.pm. Overall, pretty poor.More

Damn good stuff! Love the wooden interior work (some of the best I've seen as compared to others in the area and mountains in general). The people running this place are gems unto their own. Worth the visit if you're on the solo train!
