Monalisa Cafe and German Bakery attracts South East Asian tourists for its super renditions of popular Japanese and Korean dishes. Cheap Indian cuisine like vegetable kofta curry and parathas also has many takers who flock to this cozy little joint where one can hook up with other tourists. Long-term travelers in Varanasi often converge here and become die-hard regulars after a while. Monalisa is a much-needed break from the crowds and heat of the Old City.
Located at the Kashi Vishwanath Temple area, Shanti Cafe offers a refreshing change from the South Indian cuisine which is usually found in the area with some exotic Japanese delicacies along with a couple of Korean dishes. The restaurant's menu consists of delicacies like Miso Soup with Pork, Kimchi Cold Soba and Pork Curry which is a far cry from the vegetarian food found in the area. A range of traditional Indian beverages like masala chai and lassi are served alongside Japanese teas and coffee to provide some variety. Although the decor is minimal, the food alone is quite a draw for tourists.
Dosa Cafe is a famous spot in the holy city to enjoy inventive South Indian preparations like chocolate dosa and Ratatouille dosa, among other exciting preparations. The skilled cooks here come up with some creative yet flavorsome spin-offs of classic South Indian picks and draw in crowds from far and wide. Apart from the chocolate dosa, this cafe is also popular for the ice-cream truffle idly and uttapams. Finish off those scrumptious portions with a choice of cold and hot beverages available here.
With weary walls adorned with photo frames of Indian deities sporting dried garlands, Ashish Tea Center is a no-nonsense little space which can not even boast a regular seating area except for the 2 rows of stone seats. Try their delicious chai or coffee and watch life go by along the narrow alleys outside: slimy touts, holy men, bewildered foreigners, mangy dogs and complacent cows ambling along! Chilled lassi, curds, mineral water and soft-drinks are also served at this unassuming stop.
Hidden in one of the many alleys behind the Dasashwamedh Ghat is Shree Cafe which seems to be immensely popular with foreigners.

Piping hot delicious vegetarian meals are brought to your table while you soak in the homely ambiance and lighting of this unassuming joint.
