Who could resist this restaurant with that name. The food was good and a good variety of food to pick from. As everywhere in Kathmandu great value for money and good service.

Really good, we ordered the Nepalese food, it was cheap, huge portions! Good prices, would definitely recommend. Up an alley in Thamel, so not the easiest to find amongst the craziness, but worth looking up.

BB's is in the heart of Thamel in a relatively quiet courtyard so is well-located. The staff could be friendlier and more helpful: several requests for the bill went unheeded. The wifi worked well. I had the set breakfast of toast, butter and jam, two eggs, 'hash browns' (potatoes, capsicums and onions) which is available in many places in Thamel... More

We came here searching for a quite place to have breakfast and came back everyday. Located in a quite backyard it's good for breakfast. Food and drinks are ok, however, we have eaten at better places in Kathmandu.

This restaurant was located in the same courtyard as my hotel so it was convenient. The staff were attentive, without being overbearing, courteous and friendly.

We had breakfast here. The service was good. The food was average. The coffee was awful. A pleasant environment in the heart of Thamel with indoor and out door seating.
