Lovely oasis with super friendly staff - best burger I've ever (seriously!) had as well as a delicious breakfast (the children didn't come up for air from their pancakes and French toast). Heading back for one last meal before we leave for sure (got sucked into shopping at the on-site antique shop above the cafe so need to visit to... More

A nice Cafe and Restaurant next to the Russian Embassy. The Burgers are amazing and the personal is very friendly. If you have time to go there it is definitely a good place to relay a little bit and have good food.

This place has shifted to a nice house opposite Russian Embassy. The brownie is to die for! So is the carrot cake, with just a hint of cinnamon and lemon meringue - which is only made once in a while. I love their mini red velvet cup cakes too - especially when I try to convince myself that I am... More

Very nice place to have your evening coffee with buddies. Also, they serve good muffins with exclusive lemon and choco flavor.. The ambiance was also very classy.

Love love Cafe Soma, the staff are super friendly the menu is simple but has some of the best burgers in town. The atmosphere is blissfully calm. Shout out to one of the dai's (i literally cant recall his name at the moment which is so annoying) he is one of the best servers I have met and is the... More

I first visited the original Lakuri Cafe and was hoping that the new premises wouldn't mean a change in the quality of food or service. I am delighted to report that this is now my favourite cafe in Kathmandu! What a pleasure to be able to relax in a lovely garden (loving the new covered area ready for the monsoon!)... More

This is also known as cafe Soma, don't know if its the same as the one located in Patan. Situated right opposite the Russian Embassy, this place serves probably the best burgers in town. It looks like it's housed in a residential property with a lawn. We tried the Cafe Soma special double burger and it was great. The bun... More

Do try Lakuri Cafe at Bhatbateni. Great food and cakes. Try the red snapper burger. Great taste, eye for detail and perfection. Will certainly go back. Try Cafe Soma in Lalitpur as well if you are in the area.

Lakuri cafe is a charming place to get coffee and cakes. The outdoor seating area is lovely and the coffee was great! There was a good selection of baked goods and pastries to choose from, although the almond cookies were ok. However the lemon cake more than made up for the ok cookies! I heard that the salads and sandwiches... More
