CAFE WAKE&BAKE
Its a hidden gem of Shimla..a cozy little quaint cafe located on top floor at the mall road..We were lucky enough to get the window seat as this cafe is always overcrowded and there are only a couple of window seats from where you can endlessly watch the busy mall road below..they even have a tiny roof top area which offers splendid view of snow clad mountains..but PLEASE MIND YOUR HEAD while entering this area as the entrance door has a very low height ...this place offers absolutely wonderful breakfast options including vegan and gluten free meals ..we ordered for their signature homemade ice tea,pita and hummus platter,mushrooms and cheese toasties and a freshly baked vegetarian cheese pizza ..the food was scrumptious and the portion size was large enough for two of us..for the desserts ..we settled in for peanut butter caramel crepes and an apple pie..both the desserts were insanely good
Overall..it's a must visit place if you're in Shimla and looking forward to a decent reasonably priced fresh meal with a good view and if you really don't mind waiting to settle down in a little cramped up space..actually your discomfort would be compensated with the heavenly food served by the courteous and Very welcoming polite staff in the cafe

This place is accessed via a tight stairway up to the first and second floors where there are two claustrophobically small seating areas. There is a terrace at the back with a couple of tables and a great view. Service isn't great but the coffee is good. Place doesn't feel very clean and the floor is dirty.
Hard to see why this place is so highly rated although it is very central and popular with tourists.

When the owner of an eating place goes out of his way to pick fresh produce in the morning, travels across countries to understand the various food cultures and makes sure the customers get full value for money, what is created is excellence. Wake and Bake Cafe is one of the finest hang out spots in Shimla. Do not go by its size. Go by the food. In fact go for food only. Trust me, you will return.

It is one of the best cafes in Shimla. The cuisine is delicious. A wide range of Italian dishes along with outstanding bakery items and the ambience is very calm and enjoyable

Wake and bake cafe is located on mall road opposite shimla police station which is a heritage property. I have heard about this place from my friends who visited shimla few months back so i was sure that i will visit this place.

So i visited this place in the evening cozy cafe with rustic wall art and magical warm lights ambience of this place was so live and positive and happy music added extra charm to my experience.

We sat on first floor as they have roof top sitting options as well but that was already occupied we sat next to big yellow window where i can sit for hours and see mall road beautiful place.... Courteous staff makes it more enhanced.

We ordered white sauce pasta, bangers and mash omelette and toast, garlic toasties with jasmine green tea and chocolate fudge cake.

Food was luscious, well decorated and scrumptious. Toasties were peppery and spicy perfect art.

We sat their for an hour and it was amazing, while leaving we thought to have look at roof top view trust me it was awful valley view, cool breeze and delightful food.
