Recommended by Lonely Planet, this place has a great decor and is inviting. Disappointed by the menu, especially since many of our choices weren't available. My husband had the vegan vegetable garden salad which turned out to be more like a side salad without dressing. Knowing it is hard to find a good vegan/veggie meal in the area the salad... More

The cafe caters to the Mongolian palate with western cuisines such as club sandwiches (beef or chicken) relatively flavorless in line with the local preference. The setting is superb in an old building that has been tastefully renovated. Downstairs is a wine store, and teas are also on sale. The coffee I had with my sandwich was quite nice.

I've been frequenting this laid back cafe for years. The food is generally good, the coffee ranges from good to abysmal, depending on who makes it. Staff are friendly. Good music, and couches for lounging. The clientèle is mainly locals, with a few foreigners. Good alternative to the tourist hangouts.

Nayra (upstairs) is a great place to hang out with friends or do some work with its fast wifi. My friend and I had a huge breakfast there that included coffee or tea, juice, toast, eggs, and bacon for 11,000 Tugrik. Perhaps pricey by Mongolian standards but servings were large. Ran into several non-Mongolians there as well as Mongolian nationals.... More
