Murugan Cafe - Best Vegetarian Cafe in Mutt Road Kumbakonam

Clean and Quality Hotel on Mutt Road Kumbakonam. The Idlis are so tasty that we still savor them even after 3 weeks.( You will not get them if you visit after 8.00 am for breakfast) They also serve good Poori Masala, Different Dosais etc. Good Vegetarian Budget Eat Out for Family

It is a clean and wholesome south Indian place. I found the idlies hot and soft and their coconut chutney sufficiently thick as to pass for 'getti chutney' rather than the watery versions that are commonly available.

This is situated in heart of city and offers a variety of food throughout the day. The south indian dishes are of-course the best ones here at really good prices. One should also taste kumbakonam coffee in dabra set here during the visit. Located in the market place( i think near Town Hall School) it has ample space for large... More

We stayed here in May 2015 during our Kumbakonam trip. The hotel rooms were quite good, nice and clean and air conditioning was just perfect. We had breakfast, and was quite good and prices were also reasonable. Highly recommended for a night stay.

The place maybe popular for its good food but on 12 May 2015 when we ( family of 5 members) walked in at 9:00AM we found we could not sit together as each table was occupied partially with one or two vacant seats. That is when we noticed 3 tables in a row totally empty but with "no service" signage... More
