We called in to this place a few times during our visit to Varkala, and always loved the vibe. Good ambient music, attentive staff and great coffee! What mor could you want!

The service was very slow and disorganised. I waited 20 minutes for poached eggs and a juice. The eggs arrived eventually and were terrible. The bread was nice. I asked for my juice and the waiter was very rude and dismissive. He forgot my cappuccino....More

Tuna salad brought from canned tuna! The waiter said, sorry so!!! It sucks) But the first time was fresh tuna!!!

This was a great breakfast place. The food was incredible and after spending 2 months in India we were shocked that one dish we didn’t like very much was taken off the bill. Would definitely recommend!

Well overpriced and not as tasty as some of the other more rustic places. One to avoid unless you wanna pay 100 rupees for your masala tea!

Good to go only when you are in a group. For Solo travellers, this place lacks atmosphere. Food is best amongst all places I ate in Varkala

After 2 weeks in India, I was missing a decent coffee....this was by far the best coffee I have ever had in India (this was my 4th trip having visited many cities, states etc)

Some interesting coffees (coconut milk latte) and super safe (ice from purified water), but otherwise a bit predictable - and western.

Good coffee and delicious fruit muesli for breakfast. lovely staff and great beach location. the only slight quibble is smoking is allowed here and i hate fagsmoke drifting across my delicious muesli!

Great variety to choose from, but it didn't match the hype. We expected a lot more from the number 1 rated restaurant in Varkala Beach. My eggs in the Huevos Rancheros were undercooked.
