As I was a guest at Hotel Yala Peak I had the pleasure to eat breakfast here everyday. The food is really good, and at an affordable price. The staff are very kind, and I also appreciated the location, where you can chose to either...sit inside or outside. Would recommend!More

I ate here a few times while staying at their hotel ‘Hotel Yala Peak’. You get 10% discount if you are staying in the hotel and well worth the cafe even without the discount. Down a quiet alley which is good for some peace time,...can sit indoors or out. Had mos mos burgers and breakfasts all were great. Had the banana porridge on the last day and wish i had it earlier would of been my go too. Definitely recommend this cafe.More

The food was excellent. They service was crazy good. They even sent one of their staff to walk us from our hotel to the restaurant so that we would not get lost!

A great place to relax for an afternoon, away from the main street, easy to find, and friendly staff

I had an very delicious meal there! The crew was friendly sometimes even a bit too friendly for my taste 😅 the price was suitable. I absolutely can recommend the yala cafe.

Myself and my boyfriend found Yala Cafe as soon as arrived in Kathmandu after reading good reviews online and we were not left disappointed, the place exceeds the good reviews! After our first visit we did not go anywhere else!! Amazing organic Nepali coffee and...the most delicious breakfast and authentic Thali dinners (accompanied by a few Everest beers). Great value, welcoming staff and relaxing atmosphere! 100% recommend!More

It is a good cafe situated at the peace environment of central Thamel. Coffee of yala cafe is one of the most popular coffee in Kathmandu. The staffs of this Cafe are good and they serve us in familiar environment. Thanks Yala Cafe and Yala...Peak Hotel for making my trip awesome and memorizable ❤️❤️❤️❤️More

Cozy place with nice staff and extremely affordable prices. It is a bit cold in february with no heat, and the facilities are not the best and most clean you will encounter. If you come here, eat the nepali breakfirst. We had pancakes, omelette and...the traditional nepali breakfirst. And recomend that you go for the nepali dish. A bit strange with a curry in the morning, but very delicius.More

I went here for my first meal in Nepal, taken by some friends that had arrived a few days early and had been here already. Not knowing what to expect with Nepalese food, I was very impressed! So much so, once I had met up...with the group for my upcoming trek, I suggested we all went here and took along a group of 10 of us. Everyone had a great evening andf really enjoyed the food. I will 100% be back when I next return to Kathmandu. The prices are very reasonable too!More
