Ramana’s Garden Organic Cafe
Welcome to Ramana’s Organic Cafe
Our cafe, opened in 2006, provides customers with a relaxing atmosphere. On warm sunny days you can lounge on the upstairs patio, situated above the Ganges River overlooking both the holy river and a bubbling creek surrounded by flowers and trees. On chilly winter days the fireplace is ablaze providing a warm abode to relax and read a book with a cup of warm Masala Chai.
Enjoy a variety of our own organically grown salads and vegetables, homemade soups, and fresh baked goods. All our vegetables and most of our fruit are grown in our surrounding gardens and prepared on site by our talented young chefs, many who have been trained hands-on by international chefs.
~DINE FOR A CAUSE~
Not only is the food the most fresh in Rishikesh, but the café plays a large role in supporting Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home with 100% of the profits, while allowing them to work for tips to fund their college education and gain necessary skills for future employment and life.

We now serve a Yogi Breakfast for those just finishing their practice and wanting a boost consisting of fresh fruit, yogurt and homemade muesli. Omelettes are now available made with fresh eggs from our organically fed, free range hens.
Our salads, picked from the garden in the morning and hand washed with filtered water and apple cider, can be enjoyed with a mix of greens depending on our crop (lettuce, kale, arugula, spinach, oak) topped with shredded carrots, beetroot, mong sprouts, sesame seeds and wild chestnuts. Plus our secret dressing based on olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Our soups include Vegan Beet Root, Kale, Pumpkin and a few surprises.
Our specialties, hand made with organic ingredients, include the best Mexican Enchiladas this side of the border, savory Tibetan Momos, many homemade pastas; Vegetable Lasasgna, Spinach Gnocci, and Cannelloni. Try our Eggplant Moussaka or our gluten free and vegan Indian Special served with a bed of brown rice, topped with home-grown steamed vegetables, and a bowl of the dhal of the day.
Enjoy a refreshing kale/pear/apple smoothie with your meal on a warm day on the sun deck or a Ginger Honey tea by the fire when there is a chill in the air.
