The Cafe de Flore at the Alliance Francaise is housed in a beautiful French colonial building on Avenue Goubert at its southern end near the Dupleix statue. They have a lovely courtyard with half a dozen tables as well as a more sheltered area in case of rain. As a world wide cultural organization Alliance Francaise sponsors a number of art and cultural events around India. While we were in Pondicherry they were sponsoring a film festival. The menu is quite varied for a café of this nature ranging from snacks to full meal “type” entrees. This is not the place for a full dinner (if I recall correctly they close at 7:30 PM) but it’s a calm, cool oasis for breakfast, snacks, coffee, and lunch and a restful place to just relax. Service is good and the price of their offerings is quite reasonable for the quality of the food. Although their official address is 37 Rue Dumas the café is accessible from both streets.

cafe de flore is being operated in the campus of alliance francise. The spread of the menu is pretty average but taste wise the food is much better. The USP as per to me is the ambience and the people visiting the cafe. The staff is well versed in French  adding to the authenticity of the place. I had Big Mattin breakfast and was satisfied with the taste as well as the pricing.
