Occupying prime real estate in Taumadhi Tole, this landmark cafe has tables set out on the balconies of a historic pagoda temple – there are even erotic carvings on the roof struts. Unfortunately, the building sustained some structural damage in the quake and it may be some time before they reopen. Assuming they do, expect a familiar menu of the usual Nepali, Chinese and Continental standards. A portion of the profits supports a local hospital.
