Kaiser Cafe at Garden of Dreams
In the middle of Nepal's capital city of Kathmandu stands The Garden of Dreams, a historical neoclassical garden. The Garden's layout is quite similar to formal European gardens, with paved perimeter walkways, pavilions, trellises, and different planting areas interspersed. A sunken flower garden with a sizable pond in the middle surrounds the entire area. The Garden's architectural landscape invites guests to meander and take in its delights from various angles. This restaurant is an oasis in the middle of the city! The idea of spending a lovely time with someone you love all seasons was more romantic when this garden was developed.

Salon de Kathmandu
Located on Lazimpat's peaceful side street, Salon de Kathmandu is a cafe that won't fail you to give off a solid first impression. When you walk into this cosy and endearing restaurant, you feel more like you're visiting a friend's house than a dining establishment. The restaurant is located on the ground level and opens up to the expansive garden dotted with lovely rose bushes. There is a covered area where you can get shade on a hot day or shelter from the rain during a downpour. The menu features traditional café fare like salads, soups, sandwiches, and rice bowls with a distinctive Korean twist. This is an ideal place to go for coffee or a substantial lunch with your date on a nice day.
The perfect example of a romantic café is Café Soma, which is situated in the centre of Baluwatar. Its short menu includes a variety of sandwiches, salads, soups, burgers, a brunch menu, and pastries. Their sandwiches have a traditional European flair and use fresh ingredients. The food is excellent, but what’s really impressive is the outdoor seating.Additionally, they have a sizable covered space, which makes it a similarly calm haven during monsoon season. You can enjoy being outside without worrying that an unexpected downpour could thwart your intentions. In the bustling metropolis of Kathmandu, its roomy outside garden is truly the ideal place to breathe fresh air.

Nestled near Boudhanath Stupa, the KaNying Monastery owns and operates a vegetarian eatery known as Utpala Cafe. This outdoor eatery is well-known for its inexpensive buffets and once-a-week farmer's markets. It has a calm atmosphere because it is situated away from the busy main routes. The fascinating thing, of course, was the gorgeous and friendly dogs that reside there. Compared to the other cafés on this list, this one is more affordable and great for hanging out with your companion.
