Free Spirit Cafe is a relaxed cafe with a beautiful view of the Ganga. Slightly off the main strip, this cafe is the spot to meet people from around the world or take a break while enjoying breakfast or a colorful sunset. Tasty food with good service and generous employees.
Thank you Vipinji!!

Free Spirit cafe has a nice, chill vibe, beautiful view of the Ganga, and the staff is friendly and humble.

The Masala Chai is decent, not as watery as some other places.

The paneer tikka masala is mediocre. It presented as more of a soup than a curry, and seems to be tomatoes from a can.

The paneer seems packaged, as it didn't taste fresh and was more firm than creamy.
Adding their homemade chili sauce and some salt helped it go down.

The garlic naan wasn't noteworthy.

At 21:00, it was very quiet and the lights of lower Rishikesh glistened hypnotically.

I'd say it's a better place to relax for tea and snacks than for a meal.

On a very hectic and noisy road....climb a few stairs, enter this cafe and suddenly you are in this oasis of calm with beautiful views of The River Ganges. Chai is just 20 rupee and the best I have had so far....and they do the best Aloo Paratha here too.

I spent 4 or 5 days here working last week - recommended for Digital Nomads looking for a spot get stuck into a project without too many distractions, good internet and good food.
