8 AM calm at MG Road, Gangtok
We woke up early to catch some hot piping coffee and fresh bread.
Entrance to Baker's Cafe
This was called coffee slice or something @Baker's Cafe
This was the apple or walnut crumble @ The Coffee Shop. Divine!
Another place we loved and hung out quite a bit at was....
Christmas on MG Road, Gangtok!
There are a few things I took away from Gangtok. Dark winding roads uphill, awesome bakeries displaying deserts I’d never seen and some well dressed petite women on the roads with fancy boots and fancier sweaters.
And let's not forget the liquor store on every street corner!
The day we arrived, or rather the evening we arrived, the city was hosting a carnival of sorts on MG Road – replete with all ethnic groups that comprise the city. Rajasthanis, Punjabis, Sikkimese, Bengalis and Nepalis formed the bulk of them; quite the treat to our eyes. The city sees several such cultural events the weeks leading to Christmas and New Years. MG Road was bedecked and bejeweled.
