“The BEST food in Varanasi!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013


Situated down a little alley near the main Ghats and above the Harmannon guest house this place serves up quality food at a reasonable price. The vibes is chilled out and very relaxing. Bona is Korean and her dishes are amazing. We ate all our breakfasts here (muesli/yogurt/fruit) and the press coffee was perfect. Bona is very knowledgeable about the area and clearly loves what she does. We are so grateful that we found this place in the middle of a crazy, but beautiful city. A slice of paradise!

“Quiet haven in Varanasi”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Bona cafe is quite hard to find but well worth searching out. It is a quiet place where you can relax with wifi and great food. The owner and staff are really nice and welcoming, they make you feel at home. A place like this was definitely needed for me and my partner in the hectic city of Varanasi. We often found refuge here.

“Delicious food, quite place”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

this quite place is hard to find, but it's worth searching for it. the korean food is fantastic and a very welcome alternative to indian food, when you had it since a while.

it's not fancy but cozy. especially when it's really hot in varanasi I can imagine this place to be a little cool oasis, not far from the ghats.

“Very nice cafe, warm athmosfere and good/safe food.”

I know the place since many years. The owner and her staff are just fantastic. The place is very clean and food is good. It is a cafe run for turists with turists in mind. Fruits and vegs are cleansed with mineral water, and ice also comes from mineral water. There is always nice music and wifi free connction. Great for relaxing and enjoy good food. There is also roof top space.
Breackfast at Bona's is a must!!
