My husband and I made several visits to Lotus Lounge during our 7 day visit to Varanasi. We went for breakfast a few times and for an evening meal. Lotus Lounge has a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and is very clean. Great view over the River Ganges. The fruit salad was fantastic - melon, banana, pomegranate, apple and papaya -... More

Filter coffee (French press) but nothing espresso-based. Nice place to sit. Food fine. Fast service. Mostly foreigners/travellers here. Good location and easy to find just up from ghats.

Best filtered coffee weve had since arriving in India! We ate here a few times during our 6 night stay and tried a variety of their vegetarian food. Everything was delicious and serving sizes were very generous. You have the choice of tables and chairs or sitting back on mats. Service was quick and always with a smile

The lotus lounge is located right on the Ganges and has a great view from their rooftop location. It has a lovely laid back feeling with the choice of padded couches on the ground at the front of the balcony or wicker chairs and tables on a raised area behind. The food is fantastic but better yet is the extremely... More

Visited here for breakfast, was good food and great place to chill on the cushions on the terrace and read. We stayed a few hours and also managed some great chocolate cake!

This cool place has one of the best terraces overlooking the Ganga, with plenty of tables as well as floor cushions. The service is great and the food is ok, maybe a bit pricey, but it's hard to come by such a relaxing place with a menu that includes a variety of salads and fusion Indian dishes. Try the pakoras...

French filter coffee - best coffee we've had the last 2 months in india :) The food is good. The best part about it is that you can eat salads since it is rinsed in mineral water. Try the tandoori-salad. We had chocolatecake 3 days in a row since it actually tasts of chocolate! Nice location and view. The staff... More

Lotus Lounge was a fantastic place to come across with a decent menu. We loved the location and the beautiful view. We were especially pleased with the service - staff were very kind and attentive and the manager even came out after to double-check we were happy (which we were!).

This place has an amazing view of the Ganges with lots of the lounging spots for a nice afternoon break. They also have French press coffee, which is quite rare for India. However their prices are a little high...
