Himalayan Java Cafe in Kathmandu - Review

Himalayan Java is a large, western style coffee cafe, with lots of different comfy furniture, free wireless internet, great coffee, good western breakfasts with eggs and bacon and pancakes, lots of magazines, good cabinet food to choose from, and expensive branded coffee and memorabilia. It is located near Thamel on the Second floor so you may have to stretch your neck a bit to notice, if its your first time.

In addition to inside seating, it also has a balcony that looks out over the road, at the entrance to Thamel, and can be a nice place to go to relax, people watch, including the crazy Kathmandu taxi drivers.

If the day is nice and you want equally good coffee and a bit of fresh air, head for the Kaiser Cafe in the tranquil Garden of Dreams right next door (behind the big wall as you head back toward the Tridevi Sadak / Kantipath intersection.

What I also loved about this place that it has a female waitress, and in Nepal a mostly male dominated work culture, its nice to see. The service is fast and friendly and a place to relax and feel a bit at home in the hectic Kathmandu streets.

Even though this place isn't even remotely Nepalese, everyone can appreciate a nice cup of coffee in a relaxing atmosphere.
