Cafe des Arts is perfect place to have a chat with friends while eating nice bruschetta and drinking excellent home made ice tea! Interior of cafe is very authentic- love it! Recommend to all who want to find a place with warm atmosphere inside :)

I make it a point to visit this place whenever I go to Pondy. Never got bored of the menu after all the visits. 5 star for everything. Remember to go early.

They have a nice informal setting. A damn cute dog. And the staff is really accommodating as well. They close by 7pm which is a shame. But I guess that's their call. Good choice of comfort food.

They have a nostalgic store of old Kollywood movies inside. They have some sofas inside and coffee is good, and so is their waffles, sandwiches and crepe. Definitely need to stop for one afternoon for some good break. Lots of smoking though inside.. may not be the best - they should ask the guest to refrain from smoking inside.

Again our Tuk Tuk driver let us out at the wrong place and we struggled to find this. Great setting out under the stars in the courtyard. Fairly small menu and simple (burgers, steak etc) but nice food at good prices in a great setting with good friendly service.

The yellow wall with cartoon like murals greeted us on arrival. We went to cafe des arts for breakfast, and it was relatively quiet on sunday morning. Ordered some pancakes, sandwiches, juices and food quality was good, service was good, and the atmosphere was very laid back. We sat in the garden surrounded by leafy greens, and it was nice... More

Stumbled upon this little cafe while looking for another place to eat. This is basically a house which has been converted in a cafe and run by a French family. The ambiance is very relaxing. There is a slight old world charm and one feels that the world has come to a halt here. A perfect place for a lazy... More

Came in on a typical, hot afternoon looking for a place to cool down. It was pretty crowded with foreigners, but it was spacious and cool inside. We (four of us) were seated in a couch area with enough seats but a table that was way too small, so we moved to a larger one where we could actually eat... More

We were too early so the staff invited us in to wait for them to prepare the food. Great variety to choose from...we ordered waffle, crispy & soft inside. I took the tomato cheese sandwich nicely toasted brown bread with melted cheese & tomatoes in it plus a salad just what I liked. Other two is muesli which is fresh... More
