Friendly and Proactive Staff

Liked the approach of the staff that grabbed time for the personal touch asking about the day, giving advises how it could be more interesting etc. Great place to meet friends.

What can I say? This is the only place in Varkala to begin your day. Have the granola with shredded coconut with curd and perfect soy latte

Coffee Temple was how we started each day after yoga - and usually a snack mid day as well! It has the best muesli bowl in Varkala and the indian chai is excellent as well.
