This place is OK and not as busy as Open Hand, which is a bonus I. Wouldn't reccomnd the non veg food, but the other stuff is fine. WiFi is fine.

The Mark Cafe has a cozy, relaxing atmosphere, and the staff are above-and-beyond kind and attentive. We could tell the breakfast was prepared with love and attention to detail, and we will definitely go back if we return to Varanasi.
