Location and contact

Welcome to the Laughing Buddha Cafe, a tiny Vegan Cafe Restaurant above the streets of lively Pushkar! We are a small and cozy place, consisting of three tables on a balcony with some additional seating available inside. Please note that there is no toilet available for you, nor do we permit smoking... but this small restaurant has a VERY BIG HEART! No need to feel away from home: All food is home-made with Love for 'Little Buddhas Hearts', our school project run entirely with small profits made at the Laughing Buddha Cafe. Come and enjoy the home-baked bread, try the banana cake and french press coffee! The Laughing Buddha Cafe offers an Indian/International menu with healthy Vegan options,

lovely food - great location - watch the people of Puskar shop in the market whilst you sip wonderful Rose water soda. There is a good ethos in the cafe - i went twice and would return again.

Fantastic small cafe with amazing food and a lovely owner. Visited on the first day of arriving in Pushkar and went every day we were there. Brilliant vibe and a cute view of central Pushkar, great for people watching! Thanks for a great experience!

We found this cafe on our first day in Pushkar and have been going there everyday! They have a whole separate vegan menu - with loads of great options (I recommend you try the banana bread with homemade peanut butter - it's to die for!)....More

Nice to see people making an effort to make a change. This non commercial place offers great food, a nice place to chill and an opportunity to volunteer. I wish to thank all of those involved

This place is absolutely amazing! In my two weeks in Pushkar I went there almost everyday. Whenever I was free, I volunteered at the cafe and was even able to visit the school that Sheru is running with the money from the cafe. Everything I...More

Enroute from Jodhpur to Jaipur and after visiting the inconsequential Brahma Temple, we had time to grab some lunch. We made our way here based on the favourable food reviews and the social concerns they represent. The four of us squeezed into the corner table...More

There is a spot inside with a table on the floor that can fit about 6. And then only 3 small tables on the deck.
