But as it happens to be the case, there are many places in Shimla that cater to the foodies quite well. So, here we are, listing the places to go whenever you are tired from a day of sightseeing.
Embassy – This happens to be one of the oldest coffee shops in the entire hill station and also the most popular one at that. Other than serving some delicious cakes, sweets, and pastries, this place is known more widely for the amazing coffee that they make. In the spine-chilling cold weather outside, nothing seems more soothing than a hot cup of black coffee along with a delicious chocolate cake right? The place is being run by a couple and is located on the Mall road. The embassy is located on the famous Mall Road, Shimla.
Baljees Fascination – This is one of the few cafes cum restaurants located on the famous Mall Road, Shimla that serves some of the most delicious Indian snacks along with coffee and other beverages. As you step inside the place, located in the middle bazaar, you are met with a very delicious aroma of the Indian snacks such as paneer pakoras, samosa, among other things. Most tourists being the north Indians, this place also serves as a great place to chill and hang out. With the slow Hindi music playing in the background, it doesn’t get any better than that. The specialty of the place is hot and deliciously served Gulab Jamuns. Is your mouth watering right now?
Wake and Bake Cafe- Shimla wasn’t known for having good restaurants where you could taste the best international cuisines. But that was the case only until two years ago. Now there is Wake and Bake Cafe, which specializes in the Indian and the international cuisines alike. This can be touted as Shimla’s reply to the high-end restaurants located in Dharamkot and Old Manali. The food here is excellent and the prices are surprisingly low as well. Located on the Mall road right opposite to the municipal office, this one is a must-visit the place.
Dimsum- Getting bored of all the sightseeing and craving for some Chinese food eh? Don’t worry; we have got just the right place which is located somewhere on the mall road. However, the service is a bit slow over here, but the blame goes to the heavy crowd in here thanks to the amazing food and popularity of the place. Soups, curries, and noodles are the specialties here and the mouth-watering taste will make you come back here again and again.
Cafe Sol- The foodies and the lovers of baked food have this place listed as one their favorite in the hill station. Cafe Sol is located inside the hotel Combermere and the place is open for the visitors as well. The great interiors are the highlights here, and the great menu, of course, full of Mexican food items and pizzas.
