I had breakfast with a couple of my friends at coffee temple. The chocolate brownies were really good. So were the coffee and tea. Overall, the food was really nice. One could spent hours here, idling away or catching up with old friends or watching the sea crash onto the rocks below. Last but not the least, I need to... More

It is a small cozy coffee shop just next to helipad.Provides bikes on rent too(Be sure to arrive there sooner to bikes are available.) Coffee was good and so were the music and songs being played here.Good for enjoying some quiet time with beach view.

Rs.50/- for a poorly made chai and Rs.150/- for a unsatisfying limp baguette. Other places on the strip have a better view and less condescending service.

Their location is very good and so are their coffees. Seating can be a problem if you are late in morning hours. They serve good breakfast too but nothing that Indian.
