#1.Ambient Café

Run by a lovely young couple; Letho and Junu, Ambient Café is located right in the heart of the town almost opposite to the clock tower square along the Norzin Lam. The place has a really good ambiance with the view of the well behaved traffic on Norzin Lam from the window. Their interior is really simple with bamboo sofas and low hanging lights but their cute little tea-cup succulents are a heart warmer. The café serves freshly brewed coffee and has really interesting choices on food. Their tofu fried rice is a must try. They also serve vegan options.




#2.Art Café

A warm cozy little place tucked away in a corner, just a few steps away from the main traffic has the best selection of cakes. With comfy lounging space, it makes the place worth spending an afternoon lost in your thoughts while sipping a cup of hot coffee. The art cafe is one of the oldest cafes in town.




#3.Coffee Culture

Located in the Chang Lam square, this café is hugely divided into two floors. While the ground floor has a wooden seating area like a traditional American diner, the upstairs has comfy couches and the upstairs has been designed to look like a balcony that overlooks the downstairs. There is also outdoor seating for people who enjoy some breeze in their hair. Their menu has a large variety of food to select from. Their delicious Ema Datshi (chili and cheese) dumplings are a personal favorite. Also, they offer a large variety of cakes and their cheesecake is the best.




#4.Central café

Just as the name suggests, Central café is located right in the center of the Thimphu town. Run by two awesome sisters who are always experimenting and creating new dishes to add to their already amazing menu. The café radiates calm and warm ambiance making it the perfect place to have coffee on a tiring day as you enjoy the busy Norzin Lam.






#5.Thija café

Located in the vicinity of the Clocktower Square, this café is known for its awesome location and good services.
