A lot of people recommended Le Cafe - it's one of Pondicherry's iconic restaurants only because of its strategic location right by the Promenade. You can watch the waves here while sipping a coffee - which is good - but apart from that, I didn't find the food so exceptional, especially compared to what you can eat in the rest... More

Located right next to the beach, it's a family place. Decent snacks, coffees and green teas, it was very crowded since we were here on a weekend. But I'm sure it will be as crowded on a weekday, given it is very reasonable, too. Good place if you want to sip your coffee , get lost in the sea and... More

This is the only coffee shop on the Rocky beach. Try the Irish Cold coffee, its amazing. Nothing like sipping while watching the sea on a breezy evening.

Located by the bay, it offers a lovely setting, with the iconic promenade on the other side. There's also a pretty mini-garden at one end which makes it all the more pleasant! You must try some beverages with local ingredients (I had a drink with hibiscus flower extract and it was amazing) If you want to go safe, there's always... More

Located right on the seaside of the Promenade in Pondicherry, you can watch and hear the waves hitting the seashore while enjoying your evening tea/coffee with snacks.

I came here couple of times in the morning, to enjoy coffee or light breakfast. The view is pretty nice, it's by the beach. But forget about having a nice time to relax there, they played super loud music from the radio. Although it's 24 hours restaurant, some basic breakfast items were not available in the morning.

Situated right on the promenade and open 24 hours, what more can a café ask for? The location is beautiful with a gorgeous view of the sea from the tables, but there are no fans so if there’s no breeze it gets really hot. The menu is normal with sandwiches pizzas etc. We called for a vegetable sandwich, a cappuccino... More
