There are days when all you want to do is finish that book you’ve carried with you for too long, while you sip on some hot coffee and nibble on a generous piece of cake. And for days like those, you have Coffee House. Nestled away in a basement right at the end of Majnu ka Tila, this cafe is perfect for hanging out by yourself or with a pal, while you eat your way through their baked goods; all served fresh and hot.

The home-baked cakes and pies are what you should visit Coffee House for. Go for the buttery Choco Chip Muffin or the rich Mud Cake, both absolutely delicious! If you find yourself there in the morning, you can even choose from their breakfast menu.

Must Drink

Apart from the hot and cold coffee options, they serve an assortment of teas. Try the bhoe ja or Tibetan butter tea {a word of caution to those who are unfamiliar with it: it’s salty and might take time to get accustomed to}.

What We Loved

Coffee House is a refuge from the chaos of Majnu ka Tila, with its warm yellow lights, comfy sofas and the smell of fresh coffee in the air. The mellow music and posters on the walls only add to the vibe. Also, there’s a bookshelf and free Wi-Fi.

What Didn’t Impress Us

Seating can be an issue, especially for large groups. The cafe also lacks a washroom.

What Is The Best Time To Visit?

Go early in the day for breakfast and coffee, or drop by for dessert after a late lunch at a nearby restaurant.

#LBBTip: If it’s a good day outside, pick up your cake and coffee and walk over to the park-like area at the end of Majnu ka Tila {do take a friend along}.
