Probably the best coffee to get around Varkala beach. Great breakfast options as well. I had a fantastic puri masala and bowl of homemade muesli with plenty of fruit. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and staff are chatty and incredibly friendly. This place is defo worth a visit!

This place is awesome. Has a good vibe, friendly staff and amazingly delicious smoothies. Love how they are one of the only places along the beach who offer soya milk for the lactose intolerant. Thanks for making our stay in Varkala so good!

Great stop if you want a coffee fix with chilled out music and a laid back atmosphere. We had iced coffees which were very good but could have done with ice in the coffees. Service was pretty slow but went with the laid back atmosphere of the place. We had an enjoyable experience.
