Great

Maybe the staff have recently gone to customer service school, or it is a difference with the evening staff, but the 2 evenings we were here service was swift and friendly enough. Chocolate brownie & coffee nice.

You can enjoy your coffee or a snack sitting right by the sea. The best thing about this cafe is it's location, could do better with well mannered staff though. I guess they have reservations in people sitting on the roof top terrace and different times.

Its a small cafe by the promenade, looking out into the ocean. Lovely place to spend some time. We got in at Lunch and ordered a salad and a Sand witch. Food is nothing exceptional, but its fresh and quite nice. Dessert- I would recommend staying far away from the Cheese Cake. It had a over powering smell and taste... More

Good place by the sea to have a light food or great coffee and relax. Worth visiting when you are strolling the Promenade (Pondiccherry beach). It is a 24 hour coffee shop.

This cafe is right on the beach. It is housed in an heritage structure. It serves a fusion of the French and Indian cuisine. It is a bit expensive. But it is a good place to hang around.
