Assi Ghat, Varanasi, India

Ayurvedic indian cafe run by a Shivani, an ayurvedic practioner and woman who lives in California and India. The atmosphere is home-like and cozy. Nice bathroom with a western toilet.

Yummy food with kind owners! - Edit

We really loved this cafe, the owner really cares about animals and looks after several big bulls and dogs in the area which made us really happy. The vegan cakes are out of this world, we have rarely tasted something this good! They even have an amazing vegan cream. The prices are reasonable, all the food is clean and we will definitely be back!

Pros: Delicious cakes , Owner loves animals , Calm atmosphere

Safe haven amongst chaos! - Edit

Aum Cafe in a city of questionable hygiene was a breath of fresh air! Definitely a hub and safe haven for travellers/westerners who are so keen for good, reliable, clean food. We really enjoyed all the vegan cake we ate here and the pasta (yay western food haha!)
It is fairly small so you may end up sharing a table with some fellow travellers, but that was absolutely fine! The opening hours are also not consistent, although we were lucky each time that Aum was open, yay.
Very delicious, good service.

Pros: Clean hygienic food, Nice staff, Good location

Cons: bit crowded, cash only

Clean! - Edit

An oasis of hygiene in a filthy city. Prices are tourist oriented and the food is just ok...could just be that the menu's not to my taste, lots of pancakes, desserts, sandwiches, etc. My recommendation is the kitcharee, all you can eat. Herbal teas are also tasty. And one of the better internet connections in Assi.

Pros: Clean, Fast Wifi, Kitcharee

Cons: Menu, Coffee Drinks, Wasp Invasions

A gem in a sea of chaos - Edit

Veranasi is...Varanasi. Foodwise, nearly everywhere is unsafe to eat and you risk getting sick after every meal. Aum cafe is very wonderful. It's owned by a woman from northern California who's ended her journey in Varanasi. The atmosphere is very western So if you're looking for authentic India this isn't you're place. However, if you want a warm, welcoming place offset from the craziness of the city but still close to everything then you'll feel at home here. Great food, perfect prices. And everything is very clean and healthy. Best place I saw in India and I went there 5 times in 3 days...

Pros: Great food, Clean , Personal
