We had breakfast here twice and dinner one night during our Varkala stay. The food and coffee was good and they had a lot more choices on their menu than the other places that we visited. We would definitely recommend.

Situated right at the cliff with an excellent view , this is a place where you can spend hours watching the sea with your cappuccino flavoured with cinnamon powder :) Not much food options, but go for the view Tip : Deserts are good

This is the place we spend most of our time with family and friends. The food here is amazing, especially sea food. My personal fav is spaghetti with meatballs which is very juicy. Weekends are more crowded comparatively, but you can sit and relax, enjoy...More

We had some excellent continental food with a nice service and very great ambiance. There is a great view to the see and it's awesome when facing the see while having great food.
