Nice Pastries and Coffees but very expensive

I loved the chocolate fantasy pastry and the hot chocolate but when the bill arrived I was surprised as we had to pay quite a lot for the normal things. Taste is good but not value for money. There are lot many bakeries in Thekaddy to try for. Its a nice place but there are better coffee and bakery... read more

Don't get scared off by the narrow dirt road or the very naïf hut.. you are about to taste some delicious food made with love from the owners. The menu is a mix of indian, israeli and some european influences (name comes from the homemade baguettes). We stopped by for lunch and tasted the indian specials.. we were so happy... More

We had food at the French restaurant which has nothing french or European. A small tent with 3 tables. The juice and the food is freshly prepared. But only the juice is good. I really did not like the food out here.

This was a great find. The proprietors Reji and Subha Kumar go out of there way to make you welcome and they have a menu to cater for all tastes. This is quite simply family cooking at it's best. So good I didn't eat anywhere else !! Subha will also on request teach the fine art of Keralan cookery skills.... More

The 'French' Restaurant isn't all that French. Once you get over that mental hurdle you get a chance to taste some excellent Indian Food. The pizzas looked good as well but why on earth would you eat Western Food in India. Aloo Palak and Aloo Gobi were excellent here as was the veg curry. Food takes about 30-40 minutes as... More

Having read good reviews, we decided to try this restaurant for dinner. When we went in at around 8:00 PM, there was no power at their place. So lot of items on the menu were not available. but luckily, power was restored in 30 mins and we ordered pasta which was freshly made and tasted good. So, we decided to... More

The food was alright, nothing fancy. Most items on menu tastes bland for a Indian palate. Being a family run restaurant , they need more experience on how to behave with customers.

Tucked away behind some larger buildings, this is a very cozy family owned restaurant. The food was really good and it did't cost a penny. They even went to get some groceries for our meals, showing the level of effort they put in and the freshness of your meal.
