Any trek to the Tigers Nest is incomplete without a visit to the unique cafe located en route. We chose to drop in at the cafe on the way down from Tigers Nest after receiving divine blessings of this mystic shrine. Well maintained toilets, neat and clean interiors with adequate seating inside in the warmth or the outdoor seating with a view of the Tigers Nest Monastery are more than enough reason to drop in to catch your breath. Excellent tea with biscuits, coffee and even a buffet lunch is available at reasonable rates. Some may find it steep like the terrain but bear in mind their resources need to trek up the same path like us hikers. Do pay a visit to this unique oasis in the Tigers Nest mountain, if not anything else, for the amazing photo opportunity angle of the daunting Tigers Nest shrine !!!

So just getting the ingredients to cook food for crowds up here is nothing short of a miracle since no doubt everything has to be carried by hand/horse/mule. Cafeteria offers tea and biscuits for the weary en route or coming down from the Tiger's Nest, so a welcome spot. Lunch was a vegetarian buffet, which tasted fine despite my qualms about the hygienic aspect of things. No one got sick. Lots of folks eating here. Was dubious but just go for it.

We had the worst tea here and paid 120/- for one cup. Not a value for money place. The food options are limited as they have set menu. The location and view from the cafe is beautiful.

Looting customers at holy place...no ethics. Selling Rs26 bottle for Rs70 in the name of transportation charges to the cafe. Fraud people.

The food is vegetarian, and quite tasty, but definitely not in the gourmet category. This is a great rest stop and break, when either hiking UP to the monastery, or on your return after the hike. Drinks are cold and refreshing, the view is fabulous, but nearly as great as it is higher up, closer to Tiger's Nest itself. Regardless, you will appreciate the chance to use the "WC", and relax a bit.
