Disappointing experience. The place had flies and a peek through the door to the Kitchen / space behind was not a good sight. The lady behind the counter was impatient. The display of cakes had no name tags and so one had to necessarily ask what the different types were. This seemed to hassle them a bit. Granted that they... More

Be it croissants, brownies, tarts, french bread... it's all authentic and you get it all for a very reasonable price. They dont have dine-in and not too many options, maybe about 10-20 items to pick from but whatever they serve it's assured to be excellent. Usually open from 7am till 5pm. Closed on sundays. Not a fancy bakery but has... More

You can get good and fresh bread for a concorrential price, good croissants (I like the chocolate and the cinnamon ones) for a good price. The price of the cakes is a bit higher and they're not excellent - remember they're not typical south indian products! I suggest to try the atta-maida bread, difficult to get it sometimes. The employees... More

Absolutely mouth watering desserts. They also have very good pizzas. Try their chocolate croissants they are to die for. We bought one and couldn't resist ourselves to buy another one. A must try.

The entrance to this bakery used to be very discreet and easily missed. The location has now shifted to a few yards away from the older place and the bakery is a little more modern, but the food is still outstanding. It is best to go first thing in the morning - croissants, tarts and banana bread is fresh off... More

If you're in Pondicherry, then you must try some French bread - preferably authentic and hygenic. Then, this is the best place. It is about 5-6 kms from Pondicherry town. So you got to ride/drive here. There is hardly any other travel option. My recommendation is to try out their Quiche and tarts. Very good! You can't get them for... More

Auroville is a great place to visit and the best known attraction for visiting Pondicherry. However I did not expect such a good bakery there. It was a pleasant surprise. We had a great breakfast there.Very tasty puffs, high quality tarts,banana cake and excellent coffee. Price is also reasonable. Location is very good as Auroville is surrounded by villages.
