A cosy little café near Assi Ghat. The staff is very friendly and the owner is a sweet smiling lady who is always very welcoming. The food is really good and the drinks too, try their salted lassi, it is the best I have yet to encounter in India. They wash all their fruit and vegetables in clean water and... More

The reputation of this cafe is the hygiene of the food preparation as well as the food choices. Internet access while you are there, nice people, fabulous owner. We loved the pasta, the burrito and the lassies. At there with confidence. Really lovely local spot.

The menu is quite varied and includes some gluten free options and lots of interesting tea and juice options!! The American owner is very pleasant and gave us lots of advice on touring Varansi!! The vegan omlette is particularly good, and the porridge was very tasty!! It's quite a small cafe so you may have to wait to be seated...... More

The restaurant is open for lunch and breakfast (closes at 16:00). It has some very good dishes for vegetarians and vegans and will cater to your every need. The restaurant is also connected to a little shop where to can buy some handiwork. We spent about 700 rupees to have a very extensive breakfast for 2. The general vibe is... More

Aum is the nicest, friendliest and tastiest cafe in the whole of Varanasi! The staff is very friendly and serious, if you have any questions or special orders (not peanuts etc) they will listen and make it that way. The price is a bit higher than the rest of cafes and restaurants, but not much. And, everything is made from... More

Ate here several times with my partner and everything was delicious. The menu has a lot of information about ayurvedic foods and herbal medicine. It's upstairs, making it a little more quiet and intimate. I recommend the kicharee and the nuts & honey (toast with honey, coconut and peanut butter.) The staff is friendly and were quick to prepare a... More
