The WakeCup Coffee experience
We are the first coffee shop to use organically grown Nepali beans, and to help our customers understand coffee. We aim to give all our customers a premium coffee experience.
As soon as we open a new packet of coffee beans, we immediately store them in an airtight jar, preserving all the goodness. We grind our beans fresh with each cup for the best quality espresso every time.
Apart from coffee, we serve Nepal’s favourite dish, momo. A dumpling made of flour and filled with meat or vegetables. Inspired by Tibetan dumplings, this is a very popular Nepali street food.

Coffee shops & franchises
The main WakeCup outlet is on Mahabir Road in Biratnagar, the largest city in the eastern district and the third largest in Nepal. We have a second, franchise outlet in Kharji, near the BMS (Birat Multi Station). Biratnagar is the capital of Province No. 1, the largest city in the eastern district and the third largest in Nepal. It is in very fertile land and the hub of agriculture and industries.
Our city meaning comes from “Birat” which means “big” and “nagar” which is “city” in Nepali. Birat was named after a king in the Mahabharata period. It was said that the five Pandavs came here to hide during their last year of hideout (Gupta Bas). This is one of the most ethnically diverse regions of Nepal. Its landmarks include the Biratnagar Haat Bazaar and the Kali Mandir, a beautifully decorated temple built in the traditional pagoda style.
We also offer franchises, helping to build a coffee business with sound foundations. We canguide potential business owners step-by-step through setting up a franchise focused on quality and good returns. Our great coffee is already a recognised brand that attracts a solid, welcoming, and loyal customer base.
