It's a government run cafe the staff are very rude like any other staff of any other government office. So go there to only enjoy the scenic view of the sea and be prepared for some rude way of functioning from the staff

Over the years I feel this place has deteriorated and the quality and the service has gone down a notch. The french fries were served immediately after ordering and tasted not so good. Asked for filter coffee and was served the ones that come from the dispensing/vending machines.

This is like a CCD in other parts of the country. It is located in beachside of Promenade Beach. It is a 24*7 coffee Shop. One must visit this shop without a miss. Great ambience as the sea is beside the hotel. One can sip the hot coffee with a sunrise . It has two floors . after 11:00 PM... More

Adjoining the Rock Beach, this is a perfect place for hanging out with friends and family. The Irish Coffee and the ham and cheese Baguette were delicious. Service was very prompt and most importantly the toilets were clean
