When we were in Varanasi it was toward the end of our trip and we desperately wanted some more western type breakfasts. We looked up the choice of restaurants on Lonely Planet and came across Aum Cafe. A small hippy style cafe in the city. Perfect, breakfast was sorted.
Aum has a choice of Ayurvedic treatments, delicious food and also a little shop selling lots of hippy traveler-esque clothing. The cafe is situated on an open terrace on the top floor, but don't worry, it's shaded! They have all manner of things on the menu however I opted for the granola and fresh fruit because it had been far too long and I needed my granola fix.
I highly recommend coming here, bring a book with you and sit back and relax. They also had the most fantastic selection of teas which all had different healing powers. It was a very relaxing atmosphere and just what you want to unwind from the chaos that surrounds you in the city.
