Nice to find some good European comforts in the crazy city.

The view is beautiful just a shame it's blocked by a wire mesh. The coffee is very nice and we enjoyed the free brown bread both times we eat there. Would really recommend the veg burger. Only downside is the staff and service are quiet slow!

I think i had too high expectations before i went to the brown bakery. When we where there it was many people and good atmosphere. The menu was first a little hard to understand. And too expensive. I ordered a sandwich with edam cheese, cucumber and tomato. It also follows a free basked with bread. The sandwich was too compact... More

A good roof top place raised above the busy narrow streets of old Varanasi. Great for breakfast. Many good homemade products. Stay clear of the fake brown bread bakery across the road.

There is a fake Brown Bread Bakery right next door. It has the same name and it also says it was recommended by Lonely Planet. I went there the first time and then realised I was fooled. It wasn't a bad place, but not that charming either. So next time I came around to this real place, and then I... More

I am confused by the mixed reviews of this place. The food here is outstanding, albeit, not traditional Indian. Great indian tea, breads, cheeses, porridge, breakfast and lunch (we did not try dinner food). The view from roof top is great, the service is typical Indian (super nice, friendly and a little slower than westerners are used to). The building... More

Excellent food and atmosphere. Make sure you have the 'right' Brown Bread Bakery - you have to be in a building with for stories. The roof top restaurant has nice views, in the evening there is a nice 'concert' which gives a nice ambience

We really enjoyed this place on an early morning! The service is very professional and kind! We were really amazed by unlimited choice of breakfast and the cheese assortment (from the Himalayas, auroville etc)! We had an amazing, quiet and delicious moment there! Go there if you wish to have some delicious bread, cheese and muesli!

First and foremost: after bring three groups, for a total of 37 people, to this restaurant over a one month period, we tried to go there with our local friends.... until we were informed that locals could not enter. SERIOUSLY?! I can appreciate wanting to keep touts out, but old friends we want to catch up with? Everyone was extremely... More

First of all make sure you go to the right one as there are two within 10m of each other. The real one is 4 floors high. I had high hopes after hearing such good reviews and unfortunately was disappointed. The bread is amazing and the BBB special salad is delicious but everything else we ordered was pretty poor.
