You can feel and smell the bread being baked it give you a fresh feel and you crave for the product to be ordered and enjoy them. Rarely u have that privilege to get aroma of the fresh bakery product. Quality is good but little expensive. Try everything there.

We visited this place everyday while we stayed at pondy except sundays, when they are shut. Just drive by this place and the whiff of freshly baked breads invites you to this little bakery. The best time to visit is before noon, coz most things get sold out. The vegan quiche was so delicious - the crust just right. Chocolate... More

We tried their Sesame bread the taste was totally different from the ones we get from bakery franchises. The lemon tart was excellent!!! They do not have a place to sit and eat, we... More

The bakery baked us a vegan chocolate cake for my daughter's 8th birthday with apricots and walnuts that was delicious and fairly priced. We also relied on them for sourdough bread and other yummy snacks- best prices of any auroville affiliated food place. bread can run out fast so best to call and have them reserve your favourite.

Nice Cafe and Bakery. Items get over here by afternoon. They grind there own flour. We had Eggs and toast for breakfast. The Items look small but are filling enough. Pricing are a bit on the higher side compared to other bakery's but the quality is very good
