- A nice place to eat on a roof top, nicely arranged with plants and couch, protected from the monkeys - A place frequented by tourists mostly (only?) - There is a concert every evening and the concert we had was great. You are not allowed to talk during the concert, which make it difficult to discuss with your partner... More

The vibe, the ambience, the nonvegetarian continental food so surprisingly good. The walk up 4 floors might be a task for some. Also, do indulge in conversations with people from different parts of the world for a whole new experience!

The food here is pretty good. The atmosphere on the roof is the best. I am unsure if anything they say in the menu about doing their best to source organic food is accurate though. ITs just hard to believe in India... definitely a god way to attract foreigners though. We ate here a few times, dinner was yummy but... More

Dear Adam, the food is so good because we source the best, organic (80%) ingredients and everything is prepared fresh, because we belief in SLOW FOOD! I m connected with our suppliers which i visit regular since over 10 years to ensure that they are real organic farmers/producers. We do not have any certificates because most of the certified organic... More

BBB is a great little restaurant with organic food, many vegan options and live music most every night. Popular with westerners. The rooms for let look simple but clean, though I've not stayed here. One of our favorite places to eat in Varanasi.

We came here starving, ordered pineapple juice and got mixed juiced instead (they never said they had no pineapple), asked for the price of a paratha and they said 30 and wanted to charge us 60, and it took ages since we got to be understood, since they barely spoke few words of english until they brought the bill, when...

I think you went to the wrong location. WE DO NOT HAVE PARATHA!!! at our old adr which is listed by lonely planet is a tourist trap using illegally our name (thats why we shifted to pandey ghat!). On top of using our name they even collect donations for our school project "Badi Asha"!! Lonely Planet extra warns about them... More

Went there after we got cheated when we went to the wrong location! As i read in Lonely Planet I asked them if they take donations for the school project, when they wanted to grab it I took it back in my pocket and left the place. Than we called the number from the website and they explained us the... More

Brown Bread Bakery and Organic Food P.Ltd is the very first organic bakery with restaurant in India with branches in Varanasi and Delhi. Since 2015 we started also a Vegan restaurant Varanasi. The company supports the projects of Learn for Life by using the profits for funding the school and to provide fair working conditions for all the staff. We use as many organic ingredients as possible for our products. All our bakery items are made from different kinds of organic grains which are always grinded freshly. The grains, the rice and the lentils are produced by certified small farmers which we visit and check regularly.
