Coffee temple is not only a very nice place to sit and watch the sky above the Arabian Sea but also a place to enjoy Italian cappuccino made in the best. Look for one of the tables facing the front (more often than not occupied, of cause) since the rear seats sometimes suffer from music. But where ever you sit,... More

Finally found fantastic coffee in India! Spent hours here every morning having yummy porridge, Israeli breakfast, fresh juices and delicious cakes. All the staff are lovely (as are the local dogs who hang out here) and the music is brilliant. Great way to start the day.

this place opens up really early, so perfect for the early morning risers, especially when you want to see the sunrise and have some nice americano coffee.

We went to Coffee Temple twice on a visit to Varkala and both times it took absolutely ages to get a coffee. The staff were not very helpful and bordering on rude when asked where our order was. On the second occasion they actually admitted to forgetting the order. We did not return after this. There is also an awful... More

Very good, strong coffee. Great breakfasts, with many different options. After trying them all, the best (and most delicious) was the raisin and coconut porridge. Great value for 70 INR! Recommended.

Off Course they wanted money for the items I didnt't get and this had happened many... More
