The snowman is a nice spot for a coffee and a piece of cake, which tastes slightly better than the standard nepali cake, decent. The tea costs 30 rupees and a piece of cake or the milkshakes 80 rps. It is a bit dark insight...More

This one of those places that you can visit everyday for a cup of tea and some amazing cakes. Perfect for both locals as well as for tourists. I would definitely recommend this place for their black forest, coconut, choco-banana cakes to name a few.

Apparently this place was big back in the hippy heyday of Kathmandu. Now it's just as good for the munchies. I stumbled across it by accident and if you're not looking for it its easy to miss. Quite a large selection of cakes. I'd recommend...More

Walking past the pitch-black cafe with the strong stench of cigarettes, it's not the typical place I'd think of stepping inside, much less eating at. Nonetheless I took a chance, and for only 80 rupees the chocolate cake was quite good. Snowman makes for a...More
