We visited on Saturday night. It was a live music night. The host was very polite. The menu though dint have much option, we ordered paneer paratha and masala dosa, but the taste was very different from what we generally eat. The ambience is also nice. Pancake was also different and tasty. Overall a must visit place.

This is a nice place to hang out and have a coffee or a bite. It's less busy than some other places in White Town and the prices are reasonable as touristy prices and White Town prices. The staff are very warm and friendly.

Pleasant roof top cafe over a cute boutique. Tasty pancakes but Thai noodle salad bland as was the chip and dip starter? In a land of so many spices not such a bad thing. Wait staff very pleasant and welcoming.

Visited this café (on terrace) for lunch and ordered orange juice and masala omelette. Masala Omlette is served with two pieces of bread and was quite delicious. The bread had no butter and tasted dry. The orange juice had seeds in it and had to ask them to remove the seeds (minus point). The ambience is nice and good for... More

I was so excited that they opened for dinner on the weekends, its one of the freshest and best meals in Pondi. Great menu choice and amazing roof top vibe. Love the boutique, especially the handbags!

A very cosy place to spend time. Belongs to a Polish owner it offers a mix of flavors in every item it offers. I ordered for sandwiches and pancake. Both were very different from the usual stuff we get in regular cafes. Pancakes were just awesome with honey, jam and butter loaded. Sandwiches were quite different and good with two... More

If you like your pancakes the North American away, thick and big, then this place is a must. You can enjoy in the comfort of a breezy rooftop with good wifi, a nice escape where you may lose track of time. A bit expensive for a pancake, definitely not Indian prices, but I cannot resist going back. A treat, rather... More

This curiously named café is quite a warm and welcoming place to relax and shop around a little. The place, housed in a colonial bungalow of sorts, is completely run by a group of local women so has an independent air about it. The staff is warm and they guide you through the indo-european menu with ease. The ground floor... More
