Manali Or Mussoorie, These 7 Legendary Cafes Make Every Hill Holiday Memorable

Maanya posted on 03 June

Serving momo, Maggi and chai, these mountain cafes are massive tourist spots – almost as famous as their hill station homes. How many have you been to?

Café 1947

This riverside café in Old Manali is a favourite with travelers, who keep going back for a slice of pizza, a cup of coffee and an evening of music.

Clock Tower

Clock Tower café in Landour looks every bit the hill station café of your dreams – an all-brick exterior, wooden seating and views for days. The New York Cheesecake is perhaps the pièce de résistance at this café.

Shiva Café

Almost synonymous with McLeodganj, Shiva Café is best visited with your travel group {don’t head here alone}. We’d recommend this iconic café for the stellar views, yummy momo and for the sake of been-there-done-that.

Sakley's

You’ve probably sampled Sakley’s mountain flavours in Delhi by now, but if you find yourself in Nainital, a trip to the original is definitely recommended. Once upon a time, you could score pastries for as low as INR 30 and, while those prices maybe in the past now, their desserts are still amazing.

Glenary's

A bakery-cum-café, a restaurant and a pub, Glenary’s has it all. Their breakfast selection is wonderful – there’s no better way to start your day than with a croissant and a hot cup of coffee.  Named the best bakery in Darjeeling, Glenary’s is well worth a visit {or two}.

PS: Don’t forget to check out the old-school telephone booth perched right in the middle of the bakery!

The Lazy Dog

Unwind at The Lazy Dog cafe, in Old Manali, as you pop open a pint of beer {or wine, if you’re fancy like that}, listen to the sound of the river Manalsu gushing by and chow down on Nutella pancakes. Treat yo’ self.

Hotel Deyzor

Think mountains, think momo. If you’re in Kaza and, for some reason, aren’t staying at Hotel Deyzor, make sure you stop by their café for a hearty helping of dim sum and soup.
