Top 4 Awesome Coffee Shops in Pokhara

AM/ PM Organic Coffee

One of the best coffee shops in Pokhara due to its wonderful ambiance, coffee & food. I was surprised when I visited the AM/ PM Organic Coffee as they don’t have plastic straws for drinking but have copper suppers for the same. As far as I know, it is their great resolve to protect the environment. Vividly remember that I had cheesecake and a smoothie bowl for my friend and both of them were delicious.

White Rabbit Coffee

Once spend your time getting into this coffee shop, there will be one word that you can say about it: wonderful. White Rabbit Coffee has great coffee, absolutely, along with scrumptious food. I highly recommend you to try sandwiches here. It is amazing, I promise. Along with sandwiches, the espresso is pretty good with 100% organic arabica beans. Overall, this Pokhara coffee shop is a well-worth place you should visit.

Himalayan Java

If you are looking for a good of joe or chocolate chip cookie, you then count on Himalayan Java. One of my favorite points here is that I enjoy a very good view of Phewa Lake while immersing myself in the cozy ambiance and a good drink. For those who are FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), the Himalayan Java provides you the free wifi. Also, you can find some light food there but if you are really hungry, you can head to OR2K for a heavy meal.
