The place is quite hot in the afternoons, but worth it because that's the only place you'll find nice fresh salads that are properly cleaned. Prices are a bit on the high end but well worth it. Tried the pasta, hummus and salads. All were above average. Pasta for 140-160 rupees and salads for about the same price. However it... More

What a fabulous café tucked away near Assi Ghat. My husband and I visited the café for breakfast both mornings we were in Varanasi. The food was DELICIOUS! We tried a few things on the menu both times and each dish was amazingly tasty. What a nice haven away from the noise of the city. It's quite peaceful inside with... More

This cafe is situated near the Assi ghat in the narrow lanes. Easy to find. It is opened from morning 7 to 3:30 in the afternoon. One can get organic healthy food here with a little madness of Varanasi for free! This place is very famous for its owner & his nandi cow.

The food here is without a doubt brilliant. Really tasty with generous servings and a wide choice to choose from...all vegetarian but most in Varanasi are. But the thing that makes you go back is the strange, weird yet fantastic setting. The menu is full of spiritual facts and foody facts. Ranging from what carbs are best with which type... More

Spotlessly clean and a great option for breakfast, lunch or a snack. We went there several times over our stay and everything we had was tasty including the bread options, salads and the hot and cold drinks. You can't go wrong here. Another bonus is the fixed price shop downstairs, full of great gift ideas. We recommend you give Aum... More

I'm writing this for one dessert i had here, which was the very very best dessert i've ever had in north India. However, i shan't say which dessert it is, in case it gets sold out next time i go because of my enthusiasm.... I'm not going to review myself out of a great bite. Suffice it to say that,... More

This is a great place to start your day at. Breakfast with the sounds of Varanasi around you as you sit high above the streets has a charm of its own. I ate here every day that I was in Varanasi and feel there was good value for money in what they served. The vibe is definitely something one should... More

We spent five days in Varanasi and ate lunch here everyday. They serve wonderful fresh organic salads. Eat your fill and know that your stomach will be ok, we did. So nice to find somewhere where you can enjoy fresh salad as an alternative to curry. The cakes are also amazing. The staff attentive and friendly. The whole place has... More

We had coffee, Massalla Tea, Ice Tea - all good. Esp. The coffee the best I had in India so far. The vegeterian Omelette was delicious. The Pancake with Nutella too. Not many places, but its worth waiting.

This place deserves all the excellent reviews it receives, the food and service are amazing. It was great to be able to eat fresh fruit and vegetables knowing they cleaned in purified water. The prices are very fair, the meal sizes are large and the food is delicious! We will be back.
