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!

If you like our Kangding cafe, you should visit our new location in Ganzi town, 7 hours further northwest. Hope to see you on your next trip!

We stumbled off the bus from Chengdu and stopped here for a break on the way to our hostel. What a good decision! Staff speak English, Chinese, and Tibetan. The proprietor is friendly and knows the area well; he greets his customers and even offers travel advice if you welcome it.

I ordered a pourover, which the barista had not made in some time. She pulled out a notebook with detailed instructions, but was also happy to let me show her how I make my coffee. :) Timer, weighing scales, and all. "Minya gonga" blend is delicious, with a slice of cappuccino cheesecake.

The smoker's area is closed off, but there is second-hand smoke that wafts into the main room whenever the veranda door opens. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the staff were quite clear about enforcing these restrictions on smoking!

In terms of food and beverage, it its Western fare you are seeking after weeks of travel, Himalayan Coffee offers the best of it all. Their coffee can compete with any establishment in Seattle; their food is fantastic (esp. the desserts); and they have cold import beers to choose from as well. They even have breakfast available for those who need to start the day off right!

Located right in the heart of the old city center of Kangding. Great atmosphere, great coffee - try the tiramisu or the carrot cake! #yum

Great coffee, cookies, and Chai Tea Lattes!! As an expat living in China, I miss really good coffee shops. This place has the coziest atmosphere and wonderful drinks. I especially love their Chai Tea Latte- it's the drink from home I miss the most!
