Café Royale

Cafe in Gangtok

Behind the traditional facade of a former monastery dormitory, this tastefully contemporary cafe displaying guidebooks, bonsai firs and Le Creuset cups, serves barista coffees (₹100–₹140), with peanut-butter cheesecake or excellent hot apple pie. The restaurant section's short menu of well-made, Western-style dishes includes caramelised BBQ ribs, pulled-pork burgers and homemade sausage-and-salsa.

On Sundays there's a special Bhutanese lunch buffet (₹500). Weekdays only, good-deal ₹150 plate lunches attract local office workers.
