Well the servings were not too great, price was little high...but the location and the ambiance genuinely compensated it. As a result we not only had our evening coffee but decided to stroll around and... read more

We went to the cafe with a motive to enjoy a coffee or brownie near to the great view of Seaside Promenade. But the taste Sucks :/ ! and it is not worth of money.!

They are charging Soft Drinks at more than double the MRP!! Diet Coke MRP - Rs. 30 Their Price - Rs. 75 They don't even have it mentioned in the Menu! Rest of the stuff is also TASTELESS! Not worth sitting here! Sit on the rocks instead!

It's on the beach, the view is great, but the food leaves a lot to be desired. Their breakfast is fantastic, but it's best to not go there for other meals.

So close to the sea you actually get wet if sitting too close to the beach side; not that you would mind it. Though run by the state govt provides good hospitality and food. We had Lasagna their signature and burgers and wow!! For the non-experimenters there is some Indian food also.

Though this is open 24 hrs.. It lacks staff and cleanliness.. Everytime you ask for something on the menu the guy on the counter says "not available".. I have been there twice but had a bad experience..

Awesome cafe with best location one imagine.Its just on the beach. You can have a warm cup of coffee adoring the Bay of Bengal. We visited there twice during our two day stay. First time we had coffee with french fries which was nice to have along with complementary cool sea breeze that the nature provided us :) The next... More
