It is a 24 hour coffee house at the promenade which also serve some snacks and south Indian dishes. While the food is pretty average and way to expensive for its worth, the location compensates for all and also the fact that it is 24 hours. The staff at the place are also pretty laid back .

Nice place for a sandwich..and expresso. The sit out is nice..the interoirs are well preserved. But any comparison with bistro is just plain hype. Pricey place to be to once.. The stuff they have for sale are extremely over priced The crowd we found there was truly cosmopolitan. Maybe a good place for someone looking for a relaxed late breakfast

It's one of the best places to have breakfast at; a must go place if visiting Promanade beach. Gives you French feel with amazing scenic view, located right on the beach. Their menu doesn't leave you with many options but have good preparations and very quick service. Staff is not very friendly and expect you to leave the table as... More

You cannot ignore Le Cafe when you take a stroll in Promenade. The cafe calls out to you, standing alone against a pleasant backdrop of the sea, with a gentle wind blowing. We immediately went in.

Can do much much better - the cafe served very limited food. Being a sea side cafe, it has the potential of being one of the best places however the food was very mediocre - some South-Indian dishes and bread omelette. You don't even get sausages here :( Service was good.
