Nice bakery food!

We wanted some bread items, so we packed some veg sandwiches for our further trip. They were delicious!

Two of us went there for a lunchtime snack. The manageress was apologetic because she had run out of baguettes and was naot making any more until later. However, my colleague and I both had excellent snacks there.

A small family restaurant located in a decrepit tin shed, it can be a very rewarding experience when it comes to food. A wide selection of baked dishes with an authentic French flavour will satisfy the most exacting palate. Lots of monkeys around, and it is recommended to dine inside.

This tiny restaurant has been existing for over 10 years in Thekkady and deserves it. We hope Reji and Subha will be able to continue making their lives of it: they are very modest and nice people serving really nice and fresh food including pancakes and pizza. We had home made lassi, pancakes, pizza and vegetable masala and everything was... More

You probably can find better places to eat, however would they get up early to make you your favourite bread on your last day in India. Lovely people, this restaurant is basic but authentic. Thank you for making the effort for us. Mike and Valerie London

Cute and friendly little restaurant. Made a nice change having some different foods other than Indian! We love Indian food but made a nice change to have some pasta and garlic baguette!! The owner is very friendly. We enjoyed our evening here. Don't be out off by the little dirt road to the restaurant!!

My mom and I had a tasty breakfast here at this charming little restaurant, which is located down a little path off of the main road. The husband-wife team running the place do everything themselves and are very friendly and hard working.
