Cosy cafe/bar with great beers, laid back atmosphere and good music, and for a great cause. We visited twice! Feels like a world away from the noisy streets of Thamel! Wish we could have learnt more about their charity work.

Hello We are very sorry to hear about your experience. Unfortunately, rats and mice are a common problem for all businesses in Thamel so we're not the only ones affected by their visits. They don't live in our cafe but they do come from outside...More
