Okay, so we knew there was a copy cat restaurant in the same street. We were warned. But we actually got handed out a leaflet by the "fake" bakery, stating they were the original...lol, only in India. The real one is not hard to miss, it's the 4 story high one, shops underneath. The fake, old german brown bread bakery... More

Unlike many establishments that cater to travelers in the mindblowing city of Varanasi, Brown Bread Bakery has a lot going for it. The reviews I found on TripAdvisor were so favorable that I went with fairly high expectations the first time that were not quite met. I loved the atmosphere and the service was prompt so I decided to come... More

By far the best restaurant in Varanasi! The roof top is amazing. Very relaxed atmosphere and great service. Furthermore a great place to get to know other tourists and India fans. Our best expirience was the breakfast on a boat on the ganga. Something really worth trying!

Food was delicious and well prepared. Felt comfortable eating a big salad given that they wash their food with filtered water. Inner room (not the deck) was very relaxed and comfortable. An oasis in the middle of the maddening old city.

I ordered an ice cream sundae a few days ago which was mostly crumbled bisquits topped with melted ice cream! I went back today and ordered a vegetable curry. It arrived swimming in red oil, unedible. Not good at all. Left my food.

I went here for a sitar concert one night. The cushions on the floor, small tables and intimate atmosphere are perfect for live music. Great food was just a plus! And they give back to the community so it deserves its good reputation.

There is one original BBB and three or more fake ones on the same street. This should give you an idea of how good this place is.. The food is absolutely amazing! Go for the spinach mushroom hamburger. For the quality of the food the prices are quite reasonable, plus you are helping their charity as well. Will definitely go... More

Stale baked goods, weak tasteless chai, food ok, service slow, overpriced.... But decent coffee. Nice views on rooftop, but don't expect anything special...
