“Tasty”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Tasty and inexpensive. Unpleasant location in general but no one else seems to have complained about it. I thought the masala tea and the scrambled eggs were especially good.

“Creative, Detail-Oriented, Tasty Cafe”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Solar Cafe is a stylish, somewhat self-conscious cafe off Bazaar Rd. Fifteen foot ceilings, overhead fans, and cooling shades on the walls gives the place a chilled-out vibe. You want this at the start of the dry season in Cochin.

Food/drink highlights:

- Grape Lassi (strained fresh grape juice and yoghurt);
- French toast with aromatic wild honey; and
- Homemade muesli.

And, unlike in almost every so-called 'multi-cuisine' or restaurant serving International Backpacker Cuisine, the presentation at Solar Cafe was appetising.

Highly recommend this place.

“Artsy, relaxing, good lunch, neat gallery upstairs!”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

The banana shakes are amazing, and so is the fruit platter. Coffee was also strong and well prepared.. just how I like it. A great stop after some exhausting sight seeing in the heat, and interesting place to look around in terms of design. A little on the pricey side but for lunch it's just right.
