My husband desperately misses having good coffee on our trips to India. Finally found a place with amazing coffee! Lucky find... have recommended to other Americans and a guy from France we met on our travels... all desperate for a good cup of coffee.

Nice place to stop for coffee, snacks or fresh juices. A peaceful courtyard and relax atmosphere. When I was there, they seemed overwhelmed by the number of visitors and somewhat understaffed. Prices were reasonable.

My husband suffers on our trips to India because you can't get a decent cup of coffee here! For my part I love the local 'coffee'. At Cafe de Flore, we both loved the coffee. We would go back just for the coffee. The view...More

It's a very relaxed and beautiful place. Absolutely stunning fresh brioches! The coffee is good, the omelette is okay. And the indian waiter prefers french to english.

Cafe de Flore is located in the Alliance Francaise building & has been recently taken over by a French couple.The surrounding greenery,verandah & the garden are rather nice & its a good place to laze around.The coffee & juices were just about average.
