Cafe Swotha

Swotha is a small cafe adjoining the boutique and B&B of Traditional Homes Swotha. Small and quaint, it is perfect for romantic dates and quiet afternoons with a book. Have a moment of rest in the back garden. The menu is not long, but you are sure to find something appetizing. Fresh sandwiches and salads, quiches, filling divine soups and strong coffee — what's not to like?


Nepal has historically been more of a tea-drinking culture, rather than favouring coffee. Nevertheless, lately there has been an increase in interest for coffee, and a taste for a good cup of joe has been developing around the country. Beans are now grown locally, and a number of sleek cafes serving high-quality roasts have been popping up for years, providing a welcome respite from the sometimes hectic city streets.
