Escape To The Hills: The Cutest Cafes In Dehradun That’ll Let You Enjoy The Weather, Beauty And Food


The hills have always represented a sense of calmness, serenity and peace for me. Everytime the city life gets a bit too much I hop on a train or even catch a bus and head off into the land of green trees, rivers, and good weather. Staying in Delhi, the perfect place for me to get away to is Dehradun. Though it’s a valley, the beauty of the city is beyond compare. Lush green orchards, a complete view of the Himalayas and gurgling streams flowing here and there. Sounds pristine, doesn’t it?

This one is a personal favourite because it’s right in the lap of nature. It’s a tiny place but a beautiful one. You’re in the hills so have some waffles and Maggi along with some piping hot coffee and you’ll feel like one with nature. Go for a stroll around the cafe too and discover hidden trails there for an unforgettable day.

If you’re looking for a place in the city then Y Cafe is ideal for you. Though the view is obviously nothing compared to the other cafes on this list, it is more spacious.
