Cosy place in crazy Varanasi

We arrived here for breakfast and for the first time in a month we tasted some bacon! At last. Chai was good, bread great and there are fresh juices. A definite restaurant must, even to just pop in for a drink.

I was really looking forward to trying the recommended food at the brown bread bakery (the right one) but unfortunately we were really unimpressed. It's not often that I fell compelled to write a review about a restaurant, hotels yes but restaurants have to make an impression, good or bad before I'll write something. We had a nice late afternoon... More

They have Wifi and a nice place to relax on the roof overlooking the city so it's a good place for some travel planning over a tea. Bread is hit or miss though and often stale. Many of our dishes were unfortunately served cold. The staff are friendly too so it's a pity the food let's it down.

It's a nice getaway from the allies below and has a view across town. Unfortunately the food I ordered wasn't the best. But then again I have never had a cinnamon strudel in India before. Bread was very stale it wasn't possible to cut with a knife.

we stopped for lunch and had the spinach and mushroom burger which was really good and very filling. We returned for breakfast and that was excellent too. The pancakes were delicious. A lovely change from the usual fare in India.

Firstly, make sure you are at the correct Brown Bread Bakery. There is a second one of the name directly across which is the wrong one. The authentic Brown Bread Bakery is a shop front and has bread and cakes in the window. Make sure you are at this one! Go all the way up the stairs to the rooftop... More

Faaaaaabulous!!! I don’t usually like to eat anywhere that does not feel authentic to where I am but this place I hunted down. And it did not disappoint. Who would not think that in the middle of the labyrinth alleys and lanes in the centre of Varanasi there would be a café like this. My reason for searching for this... More

Definitely the right one. Was rather excited for some good bread, olive oil and a cinnamon roll however the lighting was too low to make out the menu, practically nothing was available and it was terribly overpriced. The bread was ok, cheap and over yeasted, the cinnamon roll was so stale that even to bite into it cold was impossible,... More

Yes, it wasn't easy to find in that maze of alleys but well worth the search. Assorted bread tray was flavorful and a lovely change from chapati. The fondue was really good and the cheese platter included a nice variety. We sat looking out at the river and over the rooftops, enjoying the children flying kites, monkeys leaping effortlessly from... More
