Come to Le Cafe to have a wide selection of coffee. The coffee is good. The snacks and sweets are good. Give the Cheesecake and brownie a try. But the standout is the location. Best location in all pondy. fantastic view in the evening here.

If you can ignore poor cleanliness,rude staff,over priced items then this is a place where you can quietly sit ,sip your coffee and watch the waves.Staff have attitude problem,tries to manipulate your order as per their whims.They find it difficult to return the change.

Located right on the beach, almost on the centre of the Promenade, with a dozen tables arranged on the large lawn and under an awning, each with a magnificent sea-view, Le cafe disappoints just because of its service. Self-service is fine, but the queues are...More
