Stop here for a quick bite before we headed to Pondicherry for a day trip. The bakery also operates a cafe located behind it that serves a variety of drinks, local food and pastries. I enjoyed the dosa a lot.

Perhaps a little over-rated, but I guess if you are Westerner living in Auroville, it is worth driving your polluting motorbike 5km to buy your fresh croissants each morning. The cafe out back is OK, rather basic and lacking in atmosphere.

Description
When you are far away from home, you miss certain things. Auroville, in the middle of the eastern world, is full of people from the western world. As rice is the most common food in Asia, Europeans and Americans hardly find their favourites: bread and good cake. Fortunately Auroville is not a blank spot on the culinary map, as it has the most delightful bakery in the whole area. Here your cravings for all kinds of bread and pastry can be fulfilled; sweet dreams come true. But how did it all start? Meanwhile, in the main bakery, the first non-Aurovilian workers were employed. They also had to learn from zero. The working circumstances were bad. One oven under a keet roof, no walls, wooden fences, a frame for a second oven, but the metal parts had to be shared. And, of course, termites and rats. "Professionals shook their heads. We had to move the bread up to 3 times from oven to oven, from here to there. A wonder it was eatable", says Otto. Together with Jean-Denis he kept the operation going, and with the increasing income from cookies and biscuits plus a loan from Aurelec they were able to build a new Auroville Bakery in Douceur, where it is still situated.
