Initially it was great to taste something other than curries. The coffee is ok and pastries quite good. Sadly that's where it seems to stop. Probably the best location in Pondi, it's a shame the same can't be said about the food. The meals aren't bad, just nothing special. And please, stop adding sugar to scrambled eggs (perhaps it's a...

Le Cafe has been around for a very long time and enjoys a vantage position, right on the sea promenade of Pondicherry. Sitting out in their lawn, with marbled tables and benches while you overlook the sea, is a joy in itself. They have a delightful selection of snacks, desserts, hot and cold beverages and that is the best part... More

The location is bang opposite the sea. Prefer seating out in the open as the experience is much more enjoyable. The snacks and coffee is very good, it has a different taste and a charm of its own. Highly recommend

Excellent location. Just at the beach. I have never been to any restaurant which is so close to sea shore so the location is perfect. Good place to spend time, particularly in the evening when sun is not on your head. But food is pathetic. Waiters seem to be in hurry even if it is not crowded. They don't understand... More

Having a coffee at Le Café, overlooking the Rocky beach of Pondy, with the gentle evening breeze - certainly a nice place to spend time and relax. Had Grilled Prawns which is average (quality as well as quantity !) Cappuccino and iced coffee were great. Kids loved the Ice Cream as well.

Situated on the promenade, Le Cafe is one of the most scenic restaurants I have been to. The food is strictly average and not of great quality but having a steaming hot cappuccino on the sea front is worth experiencing. Also its open 24x7 The staff is not very friendly and quite slow. The staff is just waiting to finish... More

A quaint little restaurant, right by the sea with lovely food and coffees! A must visit! One can just sit here all day and look at the sea. The food is awesome, organic and fresh. Lovely sandwiches, cold coffes and smoothies!

Since its the only cafe on promenade, its worth spending some time here.The french fries with allioli sauce is good. You have few continental varities too. The service is not that good as you can expect angry stares from bearers when u stay longer than expected. And they shut down by 10PM though they say its a 24 hours cafe.And... More
