Great food and lovely coffee with super friendly service tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel. A very nice place would recommend!

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of thamel lies Sum cafe. Delicious Korean food and drinks in a peaceful ambiance amongst some greenery and away from the dust, horns, and street peddlers. Friendly service from all staff members and good WiFi. Five stars.

Sum Cafe is a combination of a western cafe and a Korean food joint. The Korean team is from Picnic Korean, which is very popular with the locals. It is conveniently located in the very heart of Thamel and yet in a less hectic and quiet private road. You will most likely enjoy the food and the ambiance. Cheers.
