Expensive and takes time to prepare

We've got a very long wait (more than 30mins), and we're so hungry when our food arrived.. It is just a waste of time when we should be roaming around the Ganges.. The price is also high however. The place is for tourists...You can't find any locals which would give you the clue that it is not... read more

This is very confusing. For two days I went to what I thought was the Brown Bread Bakery until I saw a sign just a few meters up the road to another (?) Brown Bread Bakery!!!! Same name but different places! So don't be confused - the one where you have to huff and puff your way up 5 floors... More

Once there, 48 different cheeses on the menu, olives, I expected a plate of nice green olives got a dish of sliced black olives, but olives non the less. Breads, crusty, chewy, great breads. Bratwurst, schnitzel, pork medallions, potato salad, a huge big plate of it. Ice cold beer, apple cider, cappuccino with real coffee flavor. Not Starbucks but close... More

After a (very long) wait and a look at the plates of the few customers being served, I decided it was not worth the waste of time and effort. Quite pricey and lousy service (to put it mildly). Very bad combination. TIme they clean up their act. It looks as if they live off their reputation.

The Brown bread bakery was our favorite place to go for lunch/breakfast in Varanasi. The service was very quick and the food was great. I really enjoyed their baked goods. The place is small and very popular so expect to wait a little for a seat as can be expected from such a popular cafe. Their breakfast buffet is amazing... More

I was entering the shop to taste a cocholate cake (very good!) but then I climb one floor more to see some clothes and I've discovered this amazing view on the ancient tree just in front of the building. So to see it better, floor after floor, I've reached the roof top where the restaurant is. The view and the... More

This is probably the best restaurant in Varanasi for Western food! I was not expecting to find this kind of quality and variety. Everything I picked from the menu was excellent and surpassed my expectations! It was very nice that there was live traditional Indian music at night.

not actually many Indian (mainly veg) will like to be at. found it overpriced . attracts many westerners but lesser menu for Indian food lovers . and you must be having stamina to climb at least 3 floors..and for all the foreigners it can be a good option.

Remember, the real Brown Bread Bakery (BBB) is up THREE flights of steps and has a rooftop garden. If you only go up one flight of steps and are told the rooftop is "closed" your are in the FAKE brown bread bakery down the road. It is very easy to miss the real BBB for some unexplainable reason. And as... More
