There are many more better places than backpackers cafe at chandigarh, with diluted oreo shakes and below average burgers they don't deserve to be in this list.

Do try Cafe Ivy in Lal Tibba, Mussoriee if you get a chance. Great place, awesome view and mouth watering European/continental dishes at offer. The feel of the cafe is very refreshing and the staff is very courteous.
