“Love the feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

The place serves great pastries.One of the very best in the town.
And,the place gives a kind of "hippie era" feel.
Always a pick when you are craving for cakes,and need some time out for yourself!

“Fabulous cakes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

The snowmans cakes are amazing. Went there looking for a slice of cake to celebrate a birthday while in Khatmandu. Tried Chocolate Love, coconut dream and double chocolate, all were just great! Power goes off occassionally, and dont use the restroom!

“Scrummy cakes for cake freaks on Freak Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

After Durbar Square, Snowman's is great to grab a tea/coffee and a slice (or two, if you can manage it) to replenish your energy reserves. The slices are huge and a fair price. Chocolate, Chocolate-Banana, Mocha cake, Coconut cake, Carrot cake, plus a few others, conspire to create the classic cake dilemma of which one to have. They all look equally tempting and the chocolate cake that I chose, was very scrummy with that 'homemade' taste. Teas and coffees are also reasonably prices. It is slightly dark inside, but in some ways that just adds to the quirkiness of the place. At the end of the day, as long as you got cake, who cares where you are??

“Great for a stop after Durbar Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

After an exhaustive walk around Durbar Square in Kathmandu, seeing the Living Goddess and the personal effects of 3 generations of Nepali monarchs, you need a sit-down, a drink and a debrief. This place is great for that. Nearby, on Freak Street, it's tucked away but still easy to get to.

The atmosphere is a bit grungy, dark, a bit painted-over-austere. In short, a bit moody teenager. But if you can stand cigarette smoke, the cakes are excellent, and well-priced (70 rs for a big slice of chocolate cake and 45 rs for a Coke). You order at the counter, but the staff bring your order to you. You then pay at the counter when you are done.

Word of warning: The toilet upstairs is pretty bad. Carry hand sanitizer and your own toilet paper.
