After a good look through the Patan Museum we found ourselves in a nice garden area that had a cafe....it was a refreshing place to eat as it was away from the crowded streets, speeding motorcycles and the street sellers. Recommended but check your bill......More

the cafe is surrounded by flowers & gardens, including its own organic veggie garden-very calm, relaxing place--they don't rush you at all- you can eat, drink a beer, read, then head back into the museum for another culture lesson...highly recommend spending some time here

We loved the museum cafe at patan museum. The garden setting is a refreshing break from the dense city surrounding and the staff are very warm and helpful. Prices are very reasonable too. Take a break here after the gorgeous museum.
