The food is excellent, but the best part is the ayurvedic teas. I'm a coffee drinker, and while their coffees rock here, the teas stole me. Especially their green goddess tea! Also the granola and lemon pancakes are top notch.

I've been here once, it's a very clean place and well organized. The food is of a higher quality which makes it somewhat more expensive then other places. It's hard to find a good salad in Varanasi but they certainly have some more organic dishes. There's also a little shot downstairs.

I last visited this place in May 2014. Those were the last days of college. This place has a very calm, serene, placid ambiance and the food served is delicious. You can get Sandwiches, Hummus with pita's bread, lemon pancakes etc. here. This was the place which introduced me to Israeli cuisine. There is a small shop downstairs though I... More

It was awesome to eat fresh salads safely in India. The highlight was the rose flavoured lassi. The shop downstairs sells a nice selection and is worth a visit.

What a treat after travelling India for a while - safe fresh salads and yummy different food and drinks. Heartfelt and community minded, there is also a shop downstairs offering stock with a difference. Intimate space makes for easy connection with other travellers. A must when in Assi Ghat.

Amazing food, amazing drinks, fast service, friendly staff! Lady who runs it is lovely, chatted with us and was very professional when she pierced my friends nose. We went everyday, and the shop is brilliant too. Definitely best restaurant I've found in India so far.

This is a beautiful cafe! It's so welcoming and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into the design of the venue and the menu. The shop on the ground floor is very pretty too, I got some lovely bronze and camel bone bangles from there. The shop itself it actually what enticed me in initially. It's a... More

Yummy yummy food, with delicious herbal teas, and cold chais and coffees if you need to cool down. They also have a brilliant little shop downstairs. It's a well thought out restaurant, with a nice concept.
