The Thali here is very good, and the iced coffee is strong and delicious. These guys understand food, and their restaurant is a must visit in Kochin. The ambience is lush too, really nice place to relax for lunch.

We just went for some drinks after the ferry ride from Kochi. Very relaxed ambient, with lots of books and nice tables. My masala chai was good, and the tropical juice was delicious!

Delicious food,quiet location,and friendly service. Good mix of indian and western food. Children loved the cheese and tomato toasties. My husband and I enjoyed the Indian fare. Great to know that some of the produce is organic. Tip: Thali's only available at lunchtime,

Clean with a relaxed ambiance Solar Cafe is a great spot to get delicious Keralan food. Their thali was the best I had among three weeks of traveling in India. It's moderately priced but considering the quality of the ingredients it beats out all the competition in town. I prefer South Indian food to North Indian food and Solar Cafe... More

The food was excellent and the ambiance too.There is no other restaurant in Fortkochi which serves the best organic food. We had our breakfast and lunch from SolarCafe during our stay in FortKochi. There also book collection which gives knowledge sharing.The food is so fresh and tasty. I Highly recommend this.
