Great place

Good coffee and food if you feel like a bit of European food with some Indian flair. Great muesli and fruit and best coffee since being in India. Also the Israeli breakfast and bruschetta was yumm. Joseph our waiter was so nice and such a genuine guy.

Very cool chilled hippy vibe here...I had an excellent dosa. Everything else we ate was reasonably priced and tasty. Probably a bit more pricey than smaller local places but for the view and the vibe and the service it was worth it.

Great place for brekky. Chilled vibe, great music, delicious food, lovely staff, sweet dogs sleeping at your feet. Tsunami frappe is amazing, as was the masala dosa. Also loved their humous plate with a pineapple chilli salsa. Really clean, open kitchen. It's more expensive than other places on the cliff, but worth it.

When you order a latte they hand you a large cup of mouth watering roasted goodness. I also got an order of oatmeal with bananas that was very delicious. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a nice breakfast or cup of coffee.

Had only the coffee, but it was far better than the standard of the so called MNC chains in the cities. The price was also quite reasonable.

This is a little gem of a coffee shop/café set right on the cliff top overlooking Varkala beach. The food is tasty enough but it's the coffee that's the winner, especially the iced varieties that went down a treat. The staff are friendly and it's got a spacious enough lay-out to chill and while away a few casual hours watching... More

As the name goes by, this place should be on top of your list to just get that caffeine shot, much enough to have your day started. I had a latte , rich and splendid. The Bacon omelette was much amazing as well with all right flavors exploding in your mouth.
