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.
