By morning Almora is a vibrant hub of culture, tourism, meditation, and devotion. The Pahadis are adapted to waking up really early in the morning to get all their work done and relax their time away by night time. As a matter of tradition, the local folks make it a point to retire back to their homes by sundown along with their pets and other animals that they may own. However, if you are someone who tends to enjoy the nighttime more than the daytime, this big city has many options available for you. Almora is a very popular tourist destination in Devbhoomi Uttarakhand and catering to tourists from across the world needs you to determine all aspects of travel, including interesting nighttime activities. Here are some cafes in Almora where you can relax in the dark moonlit night and some activities that will wash you over with a calming sense of peace which will guarantee a deep and good night’s sleep.
Alhito cafe is a Kumaoni styled place to relax, have some good food, meet new people, and if you like it then even stay there for a couple of days. The cafe is also a part of the resort which is all about showcasing and preserving the rich Kumaoni and Uttarakhandi culture. Located in the magical hills of Kasar Devi, Alhito literally means ‘let’s go’ and the concept is centred around the concept that the place is not about meeting other people but themselves. The cafe is one of those rare places throughout the day where you can enjoy the panoramic views while warming up by the bonfire as the sun fades into darkness.
Being a hill town, Almora shuts down pretty early however, baba cake is flexible when it comes to shutting down. Baba cake offers an immaculate collection of cakes and other baked goods that are made fresh using the freshest available ingredients. Situated near Almora in the magical ridge of Kasar Devi hills, you can gorge on cakes and sandwiches while going on a road trip to Bageshwar or staying near Kasar Devi Temple or in Almora itself. A chill time is guaranteed as you can hang out here till late, eat the popular Banoffee Cake and forget about your worries.
Valley View Homestay
Valley view can be best defined as a home away from home. Situated right in the middle of the road leading to majkhali from Ranikhet Valley view could be a great pit stop before reaching Almora, especially if you are travelling at night. They serve some delicious snacks and coffee which reminds you of a professional coffee shop but with a touch of timeliness and coziness. The adorable furniture, its famous carrot cake, and delicious pancakes will not only be a great way to fill up en route somewhere but also a great way to end the day.

Kaafla cafe in Kasar Devi can be defined in a few words – chill, cozy, comfy, and very homely. Located in Kasar Devi not far from the main city centre of Almora, Kaafal cafe is a great place to go after sundown. With interesting tunes, friendly doggos, and pretty paintings drawn or hung on the surrounding walls, Kaafal has quickly become one of the favorite hangout spots for the young tourists and even the youth crowd in the hills. They offer delicious Chinese, Indian and traditional food options to choose from and we suggest going the traditional route to get the real taste of Devbhoomi Uttarakhand.
