A cool hangout along North Cliff. Great coffee, tea and food. I enjoyed the pancakes. Atmosphere has a nice buzz and was always generally busy. Service is good too. Worth popping in!!

Its a beautiful cafe right at the entrance of the cliff from the helipad. The setup is excellent. Loved the way they have covered it with leaves. They had a huge variety of coffees. The chicken schnitzel was excellent and would recommend the same

Strong coffee, great music, free water, perfect spot to come and enjoy the best meal of the day! It's pretty cheap for the value you get and endless water is a bonus too! We've been nearly every morning, it's the hot spot for most people it seems!

We visited lovely Varkala for 10 days and Coffee Temple was one of the highlights of the trip! Once we had discovered it (on Day 4), we simply couldn't keep away. It's not just that the coffee is simply divine, all the staff are divine too! The food is scrumptious, so fresh that I even dared to eat salad -... More

The pizzas are cooked in a wood fired clay over and use real mozzarella and other Italian ingredients. The coffee naturally is the best in Varkala, They roast their own beans and have well trained barristas. Every dish we tried here was amazing.
