“Legendary!!!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

If you are passionate chocolate lover, just try fantastic Black Forest cake!!! Well, this is really beautiful place, especialy on the evenings when you can enjoy cozy interior and athmosphere. I really miss this place.

“Quirky little cafe and cake shop”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

If you want to revisit the hippie times, this is the place. The interior gives a feeling of a cheap cafe and that's not entirely a bad thing. Actually it feels strangely welcoming. The walls are adorned with graffiti drawn by visitors or at least seems like that. The cakes are really tasty here. Don't forget to try the chocolate banana cake.

“mmmm....I miss the Snowman!!!”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

mmmmm...even the thought of it brings back memories. Myself and my girlfriend were in Nepal for 5 months and stayed on Freak Street for about 3 weeks on and off between treks. While in Kathmandu we were regulars at The Snowman (there and the little samosa shop beside the Kumari temple). The cake is delicious, and not just the legendary chocolate cake but chocolate & banana cake, coffee cake etc. It's made fresh each day and at 60 rupees a slice it's perfect. In Thamel you'll pay 3 times that for a poor imitation.
The place is definitely a bit faded but it has great character and some interesting wall art, though it can get a bit smokey, and I loved sitting by the window with a coffee and some cake watching the world go by...especially rush hour in the evening with the chaos of motorbikes flying down the narrow street!
The guys who work there are friendly and they will wrap cake to go if you want.
