“Bad breakfast, good coffee!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

A little disappointing after seeing such good reviews.. The coffee was admittedly good, but the breakfast menu is really disappointing and expensive compared to some very impressive cheaper breakfasts I have had in Kerala so far.
The breakfast deal I had was meusli, coffee and a juice for 250. Not terrible but the meusli was basically cheap cornflakes with some dried fruit in it, so didn't feel like good value at all. I also had to ask if he would kindly give me a latte as part of the deal because it generally only comes with standard Indian coffee.

Dear Amy,

We are glad to meet you and sorry for the disappointing after reading the good reviews! we still remember you guys! Running a coffee shop in alleppey is quite challenging because its only season business and to get a place like ours is highly rented but we still love to serve The Best Coffee for the coffee lovers, and the machinery we use highly expansive and the quality of food is also high! we only use purified water ( all most other restaurants using running tap water) for all cooking and for fresh juices we use purified ice cubes thats makes it cool and fresh, about the muesli is also expansive because its not indian food menu.

We are happy that this is the only coffee shop which you can sit out side next to the canal and enjoy watching moving boats and good musics.

We looking forward to travelers like you come and try the best Coffee in INDIA.with us!

Ps: Amy You forgot the coffee which i make u both was complementary because I just want you to try it !!!

We wish you a good time in India and Hopefully you will miss our Coffee!

The reviews on trip advisor about this place is so great that I had a craving to go and try the coffee. I searched for the place as it's a small shop on the road side, finally found it and decided to have a coffee in the evening as during the day it's too hot to sit outside.
Had a nice chit chat with Antony and his younger brother who's kinda rockstar gangsta style. I told him that I am coming from Mumbai and want to try his coffee after trying Costa, Starbucks and Cafe coffee day and so he better live upto the expectation.
Had a really nice and strong espresso which as per the Indian taste is a bit bitter but I loved it.
They also offer free wifi :) so you stay connected with your friend while having a coffee..
If you wanna have a nice coffee in Alleppey than this is the place.

“Great place to have a snack”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Food is great and riviera feel from the outside tables is cool.

Good location as near houseboat dock and close to bus station.

If it is busy the wait can be a bit as there is only one guy working to make everything.

“Best in India”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Best coffee in India that I've had. Friendly staff with great music and even better coffees and fresh juices. Great place to ask about doing the backwaters too as the owner Antony knows all about being environmentally friendly etc. free wifi here too which always helps:)
