We went for breakfast but except for omelette and toast there was no option even at 11am. So except for the location, its got nothing. Rude staff. Bad service. We need to struggle to call the waiter every time. We found an insect inside the moca shake. So go at your risk..

Being an open air cafe right at the beach, it could be a bad option at the noon and times of peak sun. My visit was one such. Reaching here for a small eat at 12, I realized that it had a good variety of lasagne and gratin as well. The staff here was welcoming as well. I had ordered... More

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.
