Try and get a seat on the roof top or the garden (self service). Having snacks amidst the cool sea breeze is definitely a cosy experience.Food wise , you will probably find half the menu in Barista or CCD as well. Go there just for the experience. Definitely worth it.

If you want to enjoy the best coffee right at the beach over bay of Bengal one place think of is Le Cafe at Beach Road, Near Gandhi Statue, Pondicherry.

The place is obviously very pleasant and well located with sea view, also convenient as open 24/7. How ever I got some food intoxication and was sick for 3 days then at least. So if you go there be advised on what you order with lots of caution if you still want to eat there. The staff is quite quick... More

My friends and I went here for coffee on morning having sighted the night before. It was exactly what we wanted, a front row view of the beach and great coffee. The prices are cheap, about 70 rupees for an espresso or cappuccino. We didn't order food, so I can't offer any help but the service was fast and friendly.... More

The place had a huge location advantage apart from that everything was a disappointment. The food was below average and the serving staff was useless. The waiter on its own marked my table as self service and showed the queue to stand in. The burger was inedible in every sense. Little options and inhospitable staff.

This place is a nice spot on the promenade to gaze into the Bay of Bengal. Enjoy a quick bite to eat and try the samosas, which they seem to have an endless supply (to counter the seeming lack of other items on the menu) Be careful of the pesky crowd that fly around this place.

Beautifully located near the sea. We went in the evening, the location allowed for a cool breeze on an otherwise sultry evening. We were seated almost immediately despite being crowded. However, that's where the pleasantness ended. It took a good 10 mins for a waiter to saunter to our table with a menu. You can forget about your order after... More

Pretty pathetic customer service Food which is just palatable, but cheap. Good view but you can get the same from the road as well so I would say there is no reason I would go back to this place. Need to add that the "view" included the set of cutlery which was left to dry in the open just next... More

This place has gone down in service and food quality since my last visit, two years back. The food is not that great, but the staff are downright horrible. They take ages to take your order, ages to bring your food and ages again to bring your bill. One waiter even tried to take the money from our hands before... More
