We enjoyed several mugs of tea here. Be careful with the lids on the "to-go" cups, they don't work very well...

Description
Himalayan Coffee is a Western-run cafe specializing in Italian-based espresso coffees and fine desserts, including cheesecake and tiramisu. We also offer full Western breakfasts, featuring omelettes, Belgian waffles, and homemade granola. Lunch & dinner options include sandwiches, wraps, quesadillas and thin-crust, stone-baked pizza. As a social enterprise, we also partner with many local communities in offering fair-trade, high quality Tibetan products to our customers. These items include 100% yak-wool garments, unique Tibetan handicrafts & jewelry, and yak milk soap. Location: Look for General's Bridge (JiangJunQiao) in downtown Kangding with statutes of Tibetans. Our signage is visable on the south side of the river. Enter into tourist shopping district called "Liu Liu Chen" behind the large yak statute. Turn left on walking street at large prayer wheels. Cafe is located up a small staircase immediately on the left. Bringing coffee to the Himalayas and the Himalayas to the world. Come alive!
