This laidback space with its community tables and low, cushioned seating might be a bit off the radar but those in the know swear by the Tibetan and Chinese cuisine on offer, along with a smattering of Western fare, which includes gluten-free and vegan eats as well. Whether it’s a plate of momos, pancakes, Thukpa soup, French Press coffee and teas, you can treat yourself to a hearty breakfast spread here.

Zomsa Laundromat Cafe
This laundromat also doubles up as a cafe, serving plates of hot momos in variants like spinach and cheese, mutton or chicken, along with a variety of soups and noodles, Tibetan bread, pancakes, eggs done different ways and several types of teas.

Located in the village of Dharamkot, just off McLeod Ganj, Morgan’s Place might look unassuming with its facade and can be easily missable with a maze of steps that lead down to the cafe, but the trek is worth it. Settle in for fresh juices or a hot lemon-ginger tea, breakfast pizza, paninis, pancakes and salads, with sweeping views of the valley.
