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.

May be for a foreigner this would look exotic. The fancily named options were largely tasteless and over priced. Seating options resemble a College canteen which is good in a way to hang out in a big group.

While entering the Bakery, you will be greeted with aroma of freshly baked items. What makes this place special is its customers. You will find people from almost all over the world and the bakery tries to keep up with the expectations of everyone. It maybe hard for you to order sometimes as i couldn't find the nameplates missing. Otherwise,... More

The Auroville Bakery is an institution and has earned the right to be so as it is easily the most popular place of it's type in the area. It has a lot of options from great bread to cakes and some savoury items. Ok the system of service is a little strange and no prices are not displayed (this can... More
