Brown Bread Bakery

Multicuisine in Varanasi

This restaurant's fabulous menu includes more than 40 varieties of European-quality cheese and more than 30 types of bread, cookies and cakes – along with excellent pastas, sandwiches and breakfasts. Sit downstairs at street level or upstairs at the casual rooftop cafe, with seating on cushions around low tables and glimpses of the Ganges.

Pop in for the European breakfast buffet (7am to noon; ₹350) or the free, nightly classical-music performances (7.30pm). Part of the profits goes to the Learn for Life school. Warning: don't be fooled by impostors who pretend to be the BBB, and remember: the real BBB will never accept cash donations for Learn for Life.
