Coffee temple was by far the best cafe to hang out at in Varkala. The coffee (hot and cold) was excellent, as was the food (fruit muesli in particular), the wifi was reliable, staff friendly and with an excellent choice in background music. Always had a great atmosphere, not like the sterile environment of CCD etc, and was always comfortably... More

This place is busy even in the quite season, and it is easy to see why - great coffee, free wifi and water, great view and friendly staff. The owner is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Food is also good, and has some great value options. Try their chai masala, to die for!

The coffee at this place sets the standards in Varkala, probably in Kerala. It is big, strong and well roasted. I had a great fruit musli one day, other stuff on the menue seems good but not great, the cake I tried was so lala, the only reason to give just 4 points.

This place is very crowded compared to all other ones near Helipad. We had ordered coffee, we can't say its the best but a good one. You have a nice ambiance and view. Also, free WIFI is available.

This place gets closed in the evening so if you wanna visit this place, go there before 6 pm We went there for breakfast and while we assumed this will be a coffee place, it turned out to be a full fledged food place with a good menu spread. It was pretty crowded though and we were strictly told not... More
