I am big ‘sucker’ of cafes! The love for cafe culture runs in my blood and whenever I am on a vacation, even if it’s one of the most mundane regions, I look out for a cafe. My recent trip to McLeod Gang at Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, India, was one such trip where I wanted to visit one new cafe every day of my itinerary. Technically impossible though, I did manage to visit a few and see some of them whilst passing by.
McLeod Ganj needs no introduction or any fancy words. The place which is famous for its hippie and relaxed vibe, is a one hell of a paradise. A town which has never failed to surprise anyone who has visited it, hosts a number of ‘Instagram-Tumblr-Pinterest-worthy’ cafes (my kind of Paradise) ❤️
Below is the list of ‘Top 5’ of my personal favorites. Though there are many, but I resonated well with the vibe of the below 5.
Here we go!
1. Illiterati Cafe
Let’s begin with my ultimate favorite. I loved every bit and piece and corner of this cafe. It’s like a cafe that I want to own someday. A place run by a Belgian, is one of the best in McLeod Ganj. At Illiterati, 3 amazing things come together under one roof, the view + coffee + books! Yes, they do have walls filled with shacks of books of all genres, you can read as many books that you want. Apart from coffee, they even serve great Italian food.
Cost for 2: ₹500
