Having been in India for almost six months, I was feeling a little over Indian food by the time I found this place and really enjoyed the change. The Burrito was good (but could do with a little saucy salsa), the pasta dish was filling and satisfying, the vegie soup and vegie plate felt clean, fresh and wholesome. The vegie burger was just ok - a little too bready for me and could also do with some kind of tomato salsa. The cinnamon scroll was seriously good and went down very well with a chai latte. The chocolate cake and the spice cake with apple were also equally good. This place is run by a bright and friendly American lady and her well trained staff. She has put a lot of love and thought into this place, the menu and training the staff and it really shows.

Clean, cheap backpacker restaurant in a norrow street. Great to meet other travellers. The food is delicous and not expensive. Staff is very friendly.

We would always again return here.

Nice quiet place behind Assi Ghat. I went a few times for breakfast and each time had the Kitchardee and herbal tea. Super fresh and reasonably priced. My friend had the pancakes and raved about it.

Good wifi, nice place to sit and write postcards, chill out.

Great atmosphere, lovely bright cafe and very friendly staff. The food was fresh, well cooked and delicious! They also have a large assortment of teas, and the menu makes for interesting reading, as it explains the health properties of various ingredients used, and also goes into the principals of ayurvedic massage / lifestyle.
We each had a delicious bowl of porridge, which kept us going all day and was quite a nice change from rich Indian food. You can taste the love that goes into the food here!

100% worth the walk to the cafe! Sampled a few things from the menu and each item was extremely delicious! Especially the cinnamon roll! Compared to a few other top-rated cafe's in Varanasi, this was the best. Everything tasted fresh and healthy. Although the variety is not as extensive as other restaurants in the area - what they offer is perfect. Also had the best Latte and Chai here in all of India.
