After a disastrous meal at sunset restaurant we decided to have some desert at Coffee temple. This place is very nice open air place. We ordered Banana cake and Carrot cake with ice cream. Quite generous portions with reasonable price. We didnt try their coffee but maybe next time :)

Great coffee and cakes. Staff is a bit slow but very friendly. They have WiFi but rather unreliable...

We had breakfast a few times and coffee was good. They also serve breakfast. The pancakes were good but the homemade cakes were awsome!

Thanks for your review. Im really chuffed with the stuff the kitchen guys are doing. The cakes are very moreish, i shouldnt be eating them , but i cant help it .

This is a very good place for early morning coffees, especially if you can get a seat at the front by the cliff top path. It is located very close to the square known as the "Helipad". I did not try the food and I also noticed that they close before the real dinner time rush. Service was a bit... More

Our daily hangout spot in Varkala, we spent hours here trying the various frappes, shakes and juices as well as pancakes, eggs etc. Views out over the sea are fantastic and the service is laidback and friendly. And the puppies were gorgeous!
