came here for breakfast most days during my stay in Lakeside. Food quality was excellent. Service was generally good, although did encounter a few unpleasant staff members during the week. All in all though, was very pleased with this place

This in my experience is head and shoulders above the competition in Pokhara, but it doesn't come cheap. I was drooling at the thought of another tandoori chicken pizza when I was going over the pass on the circuit, and this was the first stop we made on our arrival back to Pokhara. Great menu, great food, service sometimes slipped... More

Expensive but worth it by comparison to anywhere else in Pokhara. The 'Fatush Salad' is a bonus in an area where fresh fruit and vegetables are at times impossible to come by. I tried everything on the menu. The local Yak Steak was better than the imported one. Best Apple Pie in Nepal. The brownie is a sin. Great service.... More

I enjoyed some amazing breakfasts here a few times during my stay. Wifi, good coffee and decent service also kept me coming back.

We decided to try the Indian food at this restaurant (as we always love a tasteful Indian dinner), but unfortunately the dishes were not very good (except for the naan). We haven't tried any other dishes, so can't give our opinion there. However, staff seemed more interested in one of their kids than in serving customers. Would not recommend this... More

I recently stayed in Pokhara for 5 days and almost visited the Olive Cafe everyday. They have a great of choices on the menu and the breakfasts were amazing. Having been travelling for sometime - and often being ill from the food - it was great to find somewhere with variety AND quality. The spinach set breakfast was a favourite!

Worth the 30 minute wait for fresh spinach naan, excellent biryani and fresh lemongrass tea. Located on the main road of Pokhara. There is also a rooftop, so nice to chill and watch the comings and goings down in the street below.

Spent our honeymoon in Nepal. After being constantly sick from food in Kathmandu and on our journey to base camp, we almost lost hope in finding delicious food in Nepal until we stumbled on a little resturant in the heart of pohkara named Olive Cafe. The most amazing mouth watering food we had in a long time! What really amazed... More

Food was very average. No fresh fruit juice. Service was good but would not recommend it for breakfast.

Had a tasty vegetarian launch today. The service was great. We sat in the little garden they have and enjoyed ourselves very much.
