“Decent drinks and good toilets”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Called in here for a drink and to make he of the decent facilities. More expensive than other places but worth it for some home comforts. Drinks were decent, carrot cake was tasty but a bit dry. Toilets great.

“Tasty, safe food and friendly service”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The Summit Cafe was wonderful. We were able to order from the menu without qualms about what we were likely to be served. The coffee was fantastic after a trip during which I felt coffee deprived! The prices were very reasonable and the staff were very friendly and eager to serve. What more could you want!

“Best cafe by a mile”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

You won't beat this for coffee in Lhasa. The tomato bisque is surprisingly amazing. It's very much a nice Western style cafe. Wifi works. The only downside is it's expensive for Tibet, but you get what you pay for.

“By far the best coffee in Lhasa”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Summit Cafe has 3 branches in the Tibetan Quarter of Lhasa and each of them is excellent. They serve real coffee and have a great assortment of muffins and desserts. Their other branches also have excellent pizza, burgers and salads. Summit Cafe is foreign owned, but is staffed and managed by local Tibetans, which was really important to us. We went here for coffee every morning we were in Lhasa! Excellent place!
