Le Café Nyatapola, Bhaktapur

The other night I was talking to my younger bro about this thing about travels. Short travels versus long travels - which is better? It was an endless arduous insightful conversation… which eventually ended up talking about coffee shops. Yes, that looooooong of a story. The proverbial question of the talk that reminded me of Nepal: do you really get to meet people in coffee shops in foreign places? Answer: Yes – I’ve seen it happen in Le Café Nyatapola in Kathmandu, Nepal.

How to get to the Le Café Nyatapola in Kathmandu, Nepal

What an unbeatable setting the Le Café Nyatapola has. It’s out in the square at Taumadhi Tole, in Bhaktapur, The Café tables are set on the balconies of a historic pagoda temple, overlooking this gorgeous postcard-like view of Bhaktapur. It’s where you’ll see a glimpse of the tallest temples in all of Nepal and a sneak preview of the Kathmandu Valleys and skies. Best view would be right outside the 2nd floor, facing the street view during sunset afternoons.

What to do and see in the Le Café Nyatapola in Kathmandu, Nepal

From erotic carvings on its roof struts, to Nepali, Chinese, and Continental food fares, the Le Café Nyatapola is one of the most tourist-friendly, yet local-centric kind of café place in this area. While sitting in, drinking their local coffee, and having some snacks, we could see, just across the table, a group of Chinese travelers eager to speak in English and eager to make friends with everyone in coffee shop, including us. Everyone was friendly and extra chatty during that afternoon, and I don’t know if it was because of the spectacular venue, or the food, but the place is just too gracious to all of us. It’s really a nice café hopping experience here in Le Café Nyatapola.
