The exterior graffiti is there to bait you in, it's that good. The place is well laid out on the inside also, and has a calm and tranquil ambience. It's the kind of outdoor space you'd want in your garden. But that's the best bits....More

Loved the place, put together really well, and really nice space to relax with a drink. But sadly the food is pretty average fare, and took forever to arrive. Would go again for coffee.

Fabulous and fantastic for everything. Loved the space and its food. Must try their crepes..soft and fluffy. Even their salads and sandwiches are worth a try. They even have an antique shop and a library.

The cafe has tables cruched below the trees. Raw natural ambiance can set the tune for the day. We ordered crepes and juice. Both were delicious. I am sure, other dishes must also be delicious. It gives a true feel of Pondicherry.

So hot outside while we were walking past and so called in. We had a lovely baguette each and a smoothie which was very satisfying on a hot day. Also has an outlet for tshirts which are funky.

Stock photo must-have aside, this place is worth a breakfast or a meal. Set in a colonial, old-school home, Cafe des Arts makes ample utility of the space it has to create a relaxed vibe with a few quirky elements thrown in to catch your...More
