We ate supper here last night and it was very good. My wife had a traditional Nepali veggie meal with rice and I had Pahd Thai. Both were hot and delicious. Service was very good too. We went up the stairs and ate in the loft which was nicer than street level. We will go back for sure.

Good range of food and especially the peanut butter and banana toast. Clean restaurant with friendly service and a nice roadside eating area. Internet good inside but a bit ropey outside.

We love Nepali food and have enjoyed all the flavors and culinary discovers on our 32 day trip through Nepal... Let's be honest though, Nepal's standard breakfast is not their jam: Olive Cafe made us believers that great breakfast and awesome coffee does exist in Nepal.

we got used to stopping at the Olive Cafe on daily basis for our morning coffee or tea. I have to say though that the cafe also provides excellent food and was surprised to have a well made Mediterranean salad dish named "Fattoush". Just be sure to have the waiter read your order again in case something was missed or... More
