Coffee shops are an escape; an end to boredom, a place for day dreamers and an introvert’s paradise.

In the gloomy days when the sky is overcast, and big drops of raindrops suddenly drops from the sky I find myself looking for a Coffee Shop. Like me so many people seek a warm chair, surrounded by books with a cup of coffee, its steam slowly melting in the air. Coffee shops are an escape; an end to boredom, a place for day dreamers and an Introvert’s paradise.

In the recent years, Coffee Shops have evolved and have meticulously trained themselves for the race of the growing capitalism. They are no longer a place for the quiet types (which has been tagged on me since childhood) but they have changed to fit the need of every person. It is a place for quiet conversations, a meeting with that talkative friend, a place to finish that last chapter and maybe just a place that offers shade from the rain.

Still there are those coffee shops whose quiet ambiance, aromatic cup of coffee, delicious food still lingers in the mind. We find ourselves going there again and again till all the faces of the staff becomes familiar and we are immediately greeted with a smile as we step into the foyer. These are the best Coffee Shops and are worth our time and money. So here is a list of those places:

1. Himalayan Java

One of the first successful Coffee shop outlets of Kathmandu, Himalayan Java has redefined what coffee shops can be. Whether it is in Thamel with rows of books in its perfectly arranged shelves or somewhere in a posh shopping mall, Himalayan Java offers good coffee with scrumptious pieces of bakes. It is also a good place to meet up with friends and perhaps reminisce the past.
