Living in Assi, my experience would not have been the same if it weren't for Aum Cafe. This is an environnent of gathering, of good food made with care, of sincere intention to offer satisfaction and contentment. With an ayurvedic approach, the people that run...Aum will always welcome you with a smile and treat you as their own. Many, many thanks! May this place continue to flourish and be full of meaningful meetings of beautiful people enjoying a piece of the colourful, healthy Aum Cafe menu 🌼More

This is one of the very few places in Varanasi that serves good, healthy food, in a hygienic environment. The staff is courteous and Dadi Aum (Ms.Shivani) is a lovely host! We were in Varanasi for a week and had all brunches at this place....Highly recommend this place for anybody who values health and hygiene. Not to mention the taste was great too! Thank you Aum Cafe! (P.s: the pic attached is not from the cafe. It is a beautiful sunrise in Varanasi!)More

Situated on a roof in one of the alleys near Assi Ghat, Aum Café is a very nice place to have your breakfast or lunch. They make good vegetarian food and the atmosphere is relaxing. They usually close at 16:00.

Vegan, organic food in a small, cramped rooftop cafe, but the food is reasonably priced and healthy and a nice break from the usual Indian restaurant. Well worth a visit for something different.

Right from the waiting people to the owner of this place, everything about this cafe emanates a calmness. I have tasted one of the most scrumptious pizzas here, best of the burritos and awesome food bowls. Liberal with their ingredients, would be missing out something...if you don't put this on your list of must visit places while in Varanasi.More

Beautiful menu of fresh home made food We tried several items off the menu and everything exceeded expectations! The owner was so lovely, sat around and chatted to us about her experiences in the country and told us of some local sights

My friend and I absolutely love the Aum Cafe and eat here everyday we are in Varanasi. I did review them last year too and amazingly enough, we found the food even better, along with the welcoming, friendly atmosphere, and their sincere desire to create...a healthy eating experience harmonious with the essence of Varanasi. It’s certainly a Shiva cafe!!!! I cannot praise them enough, it’s a bit of perfection at Assi Ghat in sacred Varanasi. Just to add, everything is good! And prices are fair too!More
