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

This cafe is the only cafe on promenade right by the ocean. It has a board outside that says it is 24 hours open, which we were thrilled to see. We went for a walk post dinner and to go grab a coffee around 10 pm. But the staff refused to entertain us saying they are closed because they have... More

I was on a walk through the beach early morning and noticed this 24 hour open 'more than just coffee' coffee shop. But I just had coffee, so not commenting on others in the menu. It has a great look of the sea, there is really very little land between you and sea. Should be a good experience to be... More

We ordered grilled chicken n grilled prawn. The taste of... More
