Not worth the prices they charge. Tried the veg continental breakfast. They served pineapple juice instead of the orange juice that was mentioned on the menu. On asking for tea instead of the juice (which they managed to conveniently change), we were refused. Not worth the hype or the view.

It can get better than this. Early sunrise.. By the bay ... Lovely breeze around.. Awsome scenic view... And to enjoy some seriously deliciously made food... Experience in le cafe is superb. When you are in pondi one should never miss this place for breakfast...

Location of this place is the only plus point of this cafe. You will find a long menu list with italian dishes mentioned in it. But they are cooked with very average quality. You have to go around the siting area to get your food since they have a self service option.

Go here for some good view and hence a good feel of the French Pondy ! Avoid during weekends and public holidays as it gets super crowded !

This café is situated in a wonderful location. So 5/5 for location. And 2/5 for everything else. But the place is maintained poorly. Tables, menu cards and cutlery are dirty. Service is slow. Staff members are often rude. Food is average at best. Do visit if you have infinite patience and don't worry much about hygiene.
