I love to sit and read and sip on a Honey Ginger Lemon beverage, watching the world go by on Temple Road. Literally, the world walks by. You will see people from everywhere. And the view of the valley is spectacular.

This is one of the best cafe's in McLeod, on the way towards the Dalai Lama's Monestry. Its very small and has limited sitting capacity but serves very decent food. It more like any European Cafe shops which serves good coffee, omelettes, and other famous baked items. Good Pan cakes and waffles. It has a couple of tables outdoors, which... More

Right on the main road, across from the tourist stalls and down the road from the main temple, this place had some amazing low-sugar carrot cake and banana muffins and great coffee for a coffee lover who needed a...

The more attractive cafe next door was full so we came in here - and they had the best momos we tasted all weekend! Great for a snack although the menu is not huge it's tasty, recommend.

Have been coming here for years and really feel i'm back in McLeod when i've had my first thupka and coffee at Mandala. It's perhaps a little small and not the cosiest spot in town, but it makes up for any shortcomings with friendly service, dependable cooking and best of all in my book, the interesting people you can meet...
