Brioche Cafe Paro Bhutan

The hardest thing to find in Bhutan is ‘good coffee’ and the easiest has to be ‘great hospitality and warmth by people’. During an evening ride in Paro town, a cop riding an Axxo 250 dirt-bike stopped me and insisted on accompanying him for coffee & a snack – I couldn’t say no.

We rode to Brioche Café, small place situated in old town Paro started in September 2013 by Rupa who also happens to be a pastry chef at a popular 3-star hotel in Paro.

Most of our conversation was around motorcycling and on road conditions and weather further north (Bumthang), we also bumped into Mr. Dave Peel, a helicopter pilot from New Zealand who flies for the Bhutan Government and a KTM fan.

Cappuccino and Apple Pie:

I am a core chocolate fan – non-chocolate pastries don’t excite me, but the apple pie here is absolutely delicious due to the not-so secret ingredients ‘local-grown apples and cinnamon’.

The best cappuccino so-far in Bhutan – close to some of the best-brew in Bangalore!

Chocolate Tart:

OMG – chocolate never tasted better (can’t blame the altitude, can I? :P)
