The baked goods are already cheap, but after 8pm they are half off!
Normally, I’m not huge on sweets, but when we were trekking there were some days when we hiked 15+ miles and the temptation of the baked goods in the windows of the guesthouses overpowered our instinct to be a cheap-asses and had to splurge the 300-400 rupees on a little piece of baked heaven. In Katmandu the same cookies, pies, and cakes were available at many bakeries for a quarter of the price. The bakery at Mandap Hotel is my favorite for one reason. It has 50% off of most items after 8pm. So after some intense curry at Western Tandoori, something sweet to cleanse the palate is in order. At the Mandap bakery, I could get an Apple crumble turnover or a cinnamon roll for 40-50 cents and a brown roll or a garlic roll for 20 cents for a cheap breakfast the next morning. Just remember to get there as close to 8pm as possible as there are a few people (like me) who get there right on time and swoop up on the best options leaving you with the dregs of dessert choices.
