It's maybe a 10min walk from the post office up the hill, but it's definitely worth the efforts! No noise, no dust. Mango trees, birds singing, lots of greens and flowers, very chill atmosphere. All food is very good. Absolutely must try burgers, hummus, chocolate...pancake.More

Definitely worth the walk up to this cafe and guest house. Beautiful oasis of calm from the busy streets of Laxman Jhula. Their thali is amazing.

After reading and hearing positive reviews of the pyramid cafe, we made the big walk from across the river and up the hill to get lunch. It was 1200pm when we arrived and after being seated and picking our food, the waiter told us their...chef was leaving and we could not order food. We had a nice masala chai before leaving, but when paying, many dishes were being served to what appeared to be a yoga retreat group. Therefore, the chef leaving story, appeared to be a lie to stop us ordering food and hence showing that the pyramid cafe does not value their customers. Go to little Buddha instead!More

Pyramid was very close to where I was staying and hence ended up here for at least one meal a day.I really love their masala chai.Their food is decent and fresh. Tried a lot of food from their menu and my favourite was the falafel...and hummus with pita bread. The ambience of the place is just beautiful and very peaceful! I would mostly come back here for the ambience and the service is great. Very friendly and humble staff. Must visit on your trip to Rishikesh.More

This was the most pathetic brrakfast we ever had. First, if yoh are hungry, forget about this place because waiting time is horrendous. During waiting for your food you are wondering what amazing food you are going to get. At the end you end up...with eggs swimming in water in a cabbage leaf. At the same time, owner is schooling kids by ahouting at them in front of the guests. Definitely not the vibe we expected. Hot chocolate was great!!!More

The pyramid cafe is a great place to stay in Rishikesh. The rooms are basic but nice and worth the value, the food in the restaurant is super tasty and it's just a really nice chilled out place to hang out in at the end...of the day. Stuff is nice. I enjoyed my stay!More

And you’re a part of it when you stay there. Son and manager Rahul is very welcoming. Little sister Swati runs from the kitchen to the café as soon as she can and always with a smile. Worth the climb and if you stay there...you have to climb a few times a day. Food is great. We didn’t bother to go down to the street for a restaurant. The area is very humid so be prepared that everything you own will be wet.More

That place is very nice restaurant and garden. The variety of people are nice too. After I looked on the menu I find out that they offer almost everything. So I decided to go on yogi thali. Well the dish was serve after some time...and look very good by eyes looking, actually it was tasteless, but I finish it all like a good boy, when I paid they told me that I order expensive dish than I ask, without blinking and offering solution I payed what they ask, gladly.More

Eventhough it is a hard to reach place, but the 100 m walk uphill is worth the time and energy.Its ambience is great, surrounded by trees, peaceful and serene.There is vast list of dishes to choose from. We tried the veg burger and shakshuka .It...was amazing , the dim lights soothing music .The staff made all the difference. The owner came personally to make sure we got our food on time .More

A wee bit of a trek to get here but worth it. Food is prepared fresh and takes time which we appreciate but a yoga course was on and they all got fed before our order was prepared so we were running out of time....They kindly gave it to us as a takeaway which was lovely! Stayed warm all the way back to our accommodation. Couldn't have been nicer!More

I've been staying in Rishikesh for the last two weeks, I've been to this cafe 5 times. 4 of those times they were closed even when their hours said open. The staff always has some excuse why they can't serve you. Each time is different....It wouldn't be a big deal, but the walk up to the cafe is steep and not ok if they are closed every time I go! The last time I walked up will be the last time I try! If they want costumers this isn't the way to get them..More

So you have to walk a lot to reach this place. They have live Indian music with instruments like flute, sitar. The ambience is very nice. The cons- 1. You have to get up and go to the reception to order and to pay. 2....I ordered the Pyramid thali and it was so bland! Not seasoned, not proper spices. It was really bad for Indian food.More
