Loved coming here every day to chill, get a delicious coffee, and just hang with other travelers. Ben, Lovely, and the owner Leslie are just great!

Lovely place to sit back and watch the world go by while drinking a great coffee or a delicious lassi. Be sure that you like the music of Leonard Cohen before settling down for a comfortable stop after the hard life of walking the cliff top at this great place, Varkala.

If you are a coffee lover then this place is a must visit. The food menu is lavish and tastes great. I being a vegetarian had limited food options but they made sure they served me well.

My wife had specially marked Coffee Temple as the place she wanted to visit and it did not disappoint. Had a great grilled snapper among others and we loved it. The cafe gives you the space to sit down, read a book and sip coffee at leisure, while the sea breeze caresses you. Also for people who can't walk too... More
