“Amazing place, peaceful cafe with riverview from rooftop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

This is not just a cafe, it's a society for intercultural dialogue! The drinks are amazing, people are very friendly. They also allow to use their kitchen if you wish to try something. The place is a calm, peaceful spot, in contrast to the hustle bustle of Varanasi city.
I even celebrated Diwali in 2013 with the people at Filo Cafe, Kautiliya Society. Thanks to such nice people, I didn't miss home very much on such an important festival..!

“Pleasant,Soothing nd Cozy Cafe!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Cafe has an awesome blend on nature's view and aroma of the cafe. It is tucked on the terrace in the midst of Varanasi and the place is peacefull with an amazing nd beautiful overlooking panormic view of River Ganges. It is a place to think and enjoy the atmosphere along with ur coffee. Cafe has a large variety of Tea nd coffee (almost 35-40 varieties) with snacks too. The owner and staffs of cafe are also quite friendly and serve their guests with great hospitality and i m always greeted by them with courtesy nd smiles. Its a perfect place to discuss, read, study, surf on internet and there is also a small enclosed library with shelves of books to choose from and has a wi-fi connection too.

The cafe's ambiguity is part of its charm. I usually visit cafe for a relaxing pause and always enjoy over there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Great chill-out spot in Varanasi! Too bad it only opens at 3 pm... Snacks available, friendly staff, nice atmosphere in the evening, very sunny during the day!

“Oasis in the din”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Filocafe is a beautiful cafe tucked in the bylanes of Varanasi offering a panaromic view of the river and parts of the city. Though sparsely occupied when I was there in the 3rd week of December, I was greeted with courtesy and smiles. I have become a member and hope to be connected with the vision of this place!
