  1. Explore Cafes – Bir has a plenty of cafes and restaurant. But, hold on, all cafes and restaurants do not serve quality and tasty food. As Bir is the small town away from the crowd, I did all my home work regarding food options before visiting there. I will recommend visiting Garden Café and munching on their delicious dishes and that too all freshly made. The café has beautiful ambience offering scenic views. You can also try Northern café and Sasta Café.
