Your visit to Puducherry would be incomplete sans The Promenade or Beach Street; and your visit of The Promenade would be imcomplete sans "Le Cafe". It's a cafe, but you can get the coffe, latte, burgers, french fries, meals, etc. (you can term it as restaurant but not full fledged restaurant). And it's cheap too; sipping latte for Rs. 100...

Nice beach side cafe shop. When we went it was bit crowded though, but the service was fine. It is bit costlier, but worth for the location it is situated..

Perfect location, bang on the promenade - ideal location! The wait staff are available only till 8 PM - after that it is self service. During the switchover, it is a big confusion. The self service counter guys ask you to go to the table to order the food, and at the table the wait staff ask you to order... More

Amazing view, super place...though the menu is a bit limited & the place could be more spik & span.. This is a very nice place by the sea where one can sit & enjoy the sea-breeze...Serves amazing cofffee & certain snacks to munch on. The attenders are a little over-smart but the beauty of the place is such that they... More

For anyone visiting Pondicherry, Le Cafe is impossible to miss. It has the edge of being located right at the centre of the Promenade near the old lighthouse and the Gandhi statue. Thanks to its location, it's a good spot to spend some time watching both the sea and people on the Promenade. They have also renovated and utilized the... More

Le Cafe has been a landmark along the promenade on the beach at Pondicherry. I have been visiting this place for the last 30 years and i would say that the experience is getting better. The food is decent with loads of great ambience and fabulous environment, especially in the evening, with matching company !
