iHeart Café Himalayas is a quaint little mountain café that is located in Mehra Estate enroute Ramgarh to Bhimtal. This beautifully natural lit café in the hills, is a blissful escape to grab a quick bite or to lounge for long hours.
iHeart Café with its distinctive simple yet modern exteriors and a noticeable red roof attracts people in the passing cars. While staying at the Ramgarh Bungalows, we spared a day for site seeing. I noticed iHeart Café on our way to the The Ramgarh Bunglows and made sure I visited it for a lunch with family during our stay at Neemrana. It’s started by an American traveller Tim Sebastian with whom we didn’t have a chance to meet. However, their staff is friendly and answers all the queries you might have about the café out of sheer fascination for the place and its food. Tim the owner of the iHeart café not only conceptualised it, but also designed café’s interiors along with its complete menu. I particularly loved their huge assortment of teas & coffees.
Leaving gorgeous, Pinterest worthy exteriors aside, its interiors are worth your every Instagram shot. Huge bay windows assure plenty of mountain sunshine, open layout with big tables make sure you have a swell time with other people on the community table; the graffiti, particularly the entire mechanical illustration of a working machine is quite intriguing.
The lounge section with couch have number plates from all over US cut and arranged in a triangular format, in fact the most of the furniture & accessories including the pastry display section and mirror in the restroom have a rustic, DIY feel and seem to be carved out & framed with discarded wood. The wicker couches are ideal for long evening sessions with friends particularly when it rains outside and you in the company of close ones, ponder on life and its nuances over a cuppa.
Food is standard café food with yummy assortment of sandwiches, pizza & pasta, burgers and cakes & pastries. After beautiful lunch of pizza and grilled sandwiches, I indulged in their scrumptious Lemon cake with a soft core with a cup of tea. Happiness Bestowed!
Their shakes are quite delicious. You might go in for a second helping if you come in hungry. It’s a great place to hang out, relax, read a book or two. When in hills and hunting for good places to eat at, just go there to have good food.
