Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand is one of the most charming places to visit this season. With the dawning of spring, visit Doon to soak in some sunshine, read a book, write some couplets, drink hot chai and, of course, eat delectable food at their picturesque cafes. We list down the top 4 cafes that you must try out on your next visit. By Priyanka Chakrabarti

1. Prez

Prez is a legend. This restaurant has been a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike since forever. Right from their non-vegetarian sizzlers to their North Indian specialities, they have something for every palate. It’s usually choc-a-bloc on weekends, so try finding a spot during weekdays. P.S – their continental servings are a big hit amongst locals!

2. Orchard

This restaurant stands coyly on Rajpur road, outlined by long stretches of lush-green hills. Sitting like a diva on a mountain cliff, this cafe serves delicious hot momos and thumpkas. You can enjoy your meal while watching a mountain rivulet flowing by. This cafe in Dehradun is celebrated for its authentic Tibetian and Thai offerings. Head there on a sunny afternoon for a breathtaking experience.

3. Kalsang Friends Corner

This is one of the most romantic cafes in Dehradun. Wrapped in beautiful European decor blended with natural surrounding beauty, this place serves exotic cuisines like Valencian and Italian. We highly recommend their paella and crepes!
