Mike's Breakfast

Our Story

Starting from Peace Corps volunteering in various Projects, traveling Nepal and living a life in Nepali way, Michael Warren Frame (MIKE) realized that there was a need for a restaurant in Kathmandu with good home cooking at reasonable prices. Mike had learned cooking since long time – cooking for himself, for the people on the commune and for hungry Peace Corps volunteers. He had the idea for running a morning restaurant and to do gardening at afternoon.

In May 1988, Devesh Shrestha and Mike opened Mike's Breakfast in a little house and garden behind the Sherpa Hotel at Seto Durbar, just off Durbar Marg. This was immediately quite popular with the foreign community. After five and half years there, the landlord decided to tear the place down and build an office building covering the house site, garden, and all. Mike & Devesh started looking for a place.

After that, they quickly set up Mike's Cantina above the Moti Mahal restaurant on Durbar Marg. That lasted about nine months and was an expensive lesson in taking a new partners whose priorities and agendas were somewhat different from their own.

After opening the restaurant in Naxal and closing the Cantina, Mike and his partner Dilip Baniya, his cousin Bargha Bista, opened the Northfield Cafe in Thamel.

The next step was moving to Pokhara where Mike found plenty of work for the whole year and also rebuilding and re-landscaping the Fewa Hotel. Dilip and Mike then sold their interest in the Northfield Cafe and Dilip mainly watched over Mike's Breakfast in Naxal whereas Siddhartha Lama and two of Dilip's brothers, Bishnu Baniya and Naresh Baniya, took care of things at Mike's Restaurant and the Hotel Fewa in Pokhara.

After many years of wonderful journey today the memories of Mike remains in our Heart. His legacy continues and serves the food lovers through out the year. Recent days Mike’s Breakfast is located at Lazimpat and upgraded as Mike’s Breakfast Restaurant & Bar. Dusk till dawn Mike’s now serves its valued guests with a good old Mexican/American Cuisine.

So, that's the way it all happened.
