Coffee was good but i ordered expensive fruit muesli. I only got Joghurt and a few fruits. When i complained the Staff was very nice but lost. They brought me oats explaining this is the english version. As everybody Knows that oats Are much cheaper than muesli i call it rip-off.

We visited several times over a week and every time were disappointed in some way... Staff were rude and ordering food seemed to be an annoyance to them, items not as explained as on menu and staff became argumentative when we enquired about an item. Finally lots of bugs in honey and cooked into French toast.

Don't order cold coffee ! Who ever has said they know their coffee !! Nescafé with bottled water. Don't even go there with their Mango Lassi either. Terrible.

I love coffee temple and had gone there for coffee for a while. I love the view and the music they play, and their food is good....except, their prices are simply too high. For coffee, Inda Cafe's turkish coffee and food is much better for a fraction of the cost at Coffee Temple. For kerala food, like dosa, white house... More
