Down an alleyway and surprisingly excellent

Smack in the middle of the old town of Varanasi this gem did not invite us in easily. Looked fairly bland on the outside. But Tripadvisor said try it out. So we did. And it was a great pleasure. Sounds a bit weird but chose Pizza with local Mozarella on the first occasion. It was a bit of a 'lets... read more

I find this a real shame as I really liked the food the service and the quickish wifi at this place. I was dying for some cheese and bread and this place really delivered although definitely on the pricier side. However on our second visit I witnessed the management refusing to serve to local guys who had come with two... More

As with others there are many other places with the same name within yards, only this one has the rooftop view. To find it just follow the signs for the blue lassi shop which is further along the road. The shop has normal goods and there are quite a few stairs but it is worth the walk. The service at... More

Lots of stairs, a good place to shop and an extensive menu of food. But much of the food doesn't deliver. We went for the music and we're not disappointed in that at all. I'd recommend for that.

This is a nice spot - a little oasis in the melee of Varanasi. As will be obvious if you read the Lonely Planet and other reviews there is another place copying the name just across the street. Make sure you go to the one which is slightly furthest up hill. The views over neighboring houses with kids playing cricket... More

We were looking forward to eating here from the reviews, on arrival the owner was very rude and shouted at us to move with no explanation. He then insisted we could not just have brown bread we must have white with a very confusing excuse only to see after they were providing brown bread baskets to everyone else. Overall we... More

We actually went to a similar named place & thanks to lonely planet , we asked for the rooftop. they didn't have one! But we did find the correct place close by. Most food is organic & the bread they offer you once seated is very good bread. No butter required

We had lunch here twice and were pleasantly surprised. it ain't easy to find and honestly I can't imagine who the fools are who have opened the other Brown Bread bakery within 2 meters. Only in India could you have such blatant copyright and get away with it. Okay, this place is a nice cafe and seriously nice bakery. The... More

Three days in varanasi, three visits! The food is yummy: cheeses, bread, greek salad, pancakes, espressos! The breakfast buffer menu can be tweaked. It is a lot of food which there is no point in serving. I would serve less but with more variety of cheeses or additional cup of coffee. Fruit salad in the buffet was disappointing. Watchout for...

The bakery itself was good - absolutely not what we expected but a welcome place to relax from the madness of Varanasi. More importantly though, this review focusses less on the place as a restaurant and instead on the incredible gentleman who owns the bakery. We followed the advice on here to go through the bakery to get a boat... More
