Had to eat at this place many times, not because of choice but due to the reason that this is the only restaurant open early morning in the white town. The food is average, so is the place and the staff. The location is best in pondii. It could have been much much better if handled properly.

The best thing was its location. Otherwise all other things are not that good as per location. U can have coffee and chocolate brownie there. But not anything else. But u must go and spend some time there with coffee.

Place is right next to the rocky beach and offers awesome ambience for a casual cafe. We loved the breakfast there and enjoyed their latte to the fullest! They had a 'dosa mela' running in evening and we decided to try it out - Huge disappointment. It only had 4-5 variety, that too made very ordinary...nothing innovative and nothing exclusive......

From a place like this one would expect if not a lot, at least above average food. Worst milkshake I can ever have. Don't even think of ordering french food here.

Very good restaurant next to the beach. The prices are a bit high. Nice place to sit and relax with beach view.

Located right at rock beach. Very scenic from cafe. But very busy all the time and service is not upto the mark.

Great place overall, the food is ok, it is more a place for coffee and cold drink, the location is perfect along the sea, in a cute heritage building. The place stays open late at night, which is a safe heaven when all town is sleepy. The prices are ok (consider the location), nice staff.

Great location next to the sea side on Promenade. Nice small building , Run by the Govt but surprisingly great service. Ground floor is café & open 24 hours , 1st floor is dosa centre , but do serve coffee , open only till 10:30pm. Dosas are good & very reasonably priced. Good place to go while you are visiting...

Le Cafe enjoys a splendid location on the Promenade. The view of the Bay of Bengal is, indeed stunning. But when you see the tissues tossed into the hedge and the dirt and scuff marks on the walls around, you get a sense of how this is not all cracked up to be. On a Friday, at a meal-time (around...

Firstly, great location. This cafe is located right on the seaside. I think it's owned by the government. I ordered a coffee and the guy came back to me and said we can't serve coffee due to power cut :) Prices are affordable and the board outside the cafe said it is open 24 hrs. I would recommend a visit... More
