Amazing Bakery, Amazing People- 100% Vegetarian

4 Posted on 05 / 08 / 2013

I happened upon this place while staying in Kathmandu, had one breakfast there, and dreamed of it for 3 weeks while I was on the Annapurna Circuit. When I got back I raced there for breakfast and it did not disappoint- my memory was correct- best breakfast I've had while traveling the world for a year and visiting 16 countries.
The full breakfast with grilled mushrooms, fried eggs, delicious home-baked bread, and perfectly seasoned grilled tomatoes will amaze you. The coffee is great. The cheesecake was really good- not like a cheesecake in the USA, it's really a yogurt cake, but it's delicious. The cookies are wonderful too.
The owners lived in England- the husband worked as a chef at the Ritz Carlton- and they know their stuff! They are so wonderful to sit and chat with- really thoughtful, caring people. The restaurant has a karma jar that gets used to help people in need- be they elderly or sick locals or sick foreigners. The family has done so much good to help others with this karma jar that contributing to it feels great! They won't take tips because "they already take their profit" when they set the prices, which are VERY FAIR AND CHEAP PRICES COMPARED TO FOOD THAT IS NOT AS GOOD IN THAMEL, but you can donate to the karma jar instead of leaving a tip and do lots of good.
Located near the Sparkling Turtle Guesthouse and the Monkey Temple.

Pros: Excellent food, Great value, Friendly staff

Very nice bakery

4 Posted on 02 / 04 / 2012

I allready come here for 3 years now. And I am spending 8 weeks a year in this area. If you are in the area of Swayambhunath and you really want to taste something nice, this is a nice bakery. I allways order birthday cakes here but also I will buy bread (white/corn or wholeweat), cookies, things stuffed with fresh apples or strawberries or with spinach and cheese. But I especially like their banana cake. It's a small bakery, with very friendly people.

Comming from Thamel you pass Swayambhunath. You keep this at your right side. Keep on following the road for about 200 meters, it will go a little bit upwards, At the crossing you do not go to the right but straight ahead. After 40 meters the way will split into 2 directions. Follow the most left one. After the monastery (on your left hand) there is a little gate. There is a plate hanging with Fine Grain Bakery. Enter the gate, go downstairs and enter the home/bakery.

A really nice place where they only use fresh ingredients and were they do not put any chemical things in their products. And they speak English very well!

Pros: excelent food, healthy cuisine, friendly staff
