This place is outside raw and vegan cafe. I had a chocolate macaroon from here. It was only 10 rupees but nevertheless stale. I won't be trying anything else.

Had two meals on the rooftop. The quality, portion sizes, and taste were good. Live music one evening was enjoyable and not blasting you out. Meals took a while to be served, but we're hot and tasty.

The place is wonderfull, ground floor nicely decorated and top floor very nice with wonderful live indian music at night. Now the food... Pizza was ok. Chicken burger very mediocre. Juice on the first night never came (the service is very... More

Besides the wonderful organic food the greatest thing about the BBB ist the idea behind it. The BBB was founded to support the "Learn for Life School". So you know when you enjoy your nice food you are also doing something good. And if you have been in India for a long time you might miss western food than your... More

I managed to eat at two Brown Bread Bakeries, the one to the north even has a sign "as seen in lonely planet". This is the wrong one. The right one is 1km south or so and is far better, and provides a much better atmosphere. While there, see if you can find the story behind the two eateries with... More

My (adult) daughter loves Indian food - but she wants a breakfast like at home. We found it at his friendly, hole-in-the wall place. They serve scambled eggs, omelets, granola and good coffee. It's from the Ganges river side, just behind Raja Ghat, and also accessible in a very narrow street from the city side. Use Google Map to get... More

You can take many home made fresh cakes, pay attention that they have just changed the location: the fake-one is next to golden temple and the real one is 30 min walk far. Real one can be recognised by cakes visible on the shop windows

The brown-bread-bakery (the original one) is a great place to stay and eat as well. Located in the narrow streets of the historic city centre beneath the ghats, you can even see the Ganga River from the rooftop restaurant. Founded by German Michael Schmid to finance his "Learn-for-life" street children project, the company now also gives some early pupils and... More

The company supports the projects of Learn for Life by using the profits for funding the school and to provide fair working conditions for all the staff. We use as many organic ingredients as possible for our products. All our bakery items are made from different kinds of organic grains which are always grinded freshly. The grains, the rice and the lentils are produced by certified small farmers which we visit and check regularly.
