This place was our sanctuary that we ended up going to 3 days in a row. We were in Varanasi in summer and it was incredibly steamy and sweaty and we lived for the lemon granitas at Brown Bread Bakery - amazing! Can not recommend highly enough - go for the extra large!
The food was so-so but we didn't care as the location was great, and it was lovely and peaceful to sit up on the rooftop. The pizzas were ok, but we had great pancakes one day.
Don't be fooled by the cafe before it on the same laneway also calling itself the brown bread bakery as they shouted out to us every time we walked by trying to falsely lure us in.
We also had the latest Lonely Planet that lists the old address of where it previously used to be so make sure you google the location before you go as it is definitely worth a visit.
We enjoyed shopping for textiles in the shop downstairs too and the staff were all lovely.
My only real complaint is the food was slow. However, they say it is because they make everything fresh so what can we expect? I appreciated their honesty about this as i think they acknowledge the extra time it will take on the menu. And we weren't in a real rush so didn't really matter
It was also great to know that we were supporting local kids and families.
