The cafe is located just by the promenade beach with really great view and apparently the oldest seaside cafe in town...you’ll get to have the best authentic French breakfast for about 180bucks per person.but,be prepared to face arrogant staff.it’s definitely worth a try !!

Location is great by the sea. But food is the worst. And damn expensive. Even cold coffee is tasteless! Waste of money for sure. But good to take a rest along the boulevard and walk. Sunrise and sunset looks lovely from the place.

The promenade in Pondicherry overlooking the sea and its rocky beach has a number of eateries and some have been there for some time and they serve some awesome prawns,coffee and sandwiches and this cafe serves the best I guess.

Government run cafe. Staff is indifferent and even rude. Dirty toilets. Grimy unclean tables. Sloppy service. Quality and taste of food is below average. Warning... avoid cappuccino. However location of the restaurant is fantastic being right on the beach

Simple ambiance. Good food. Service is good a bit slow. But not to worry, it makes you enjoy the food even better

Worth visit, prices reasonable given location, food is OK, a bit of a wait and also outside seats are in the sun in early morning, so only a few good ones left inside. More than coffee, eh.

The best place to relax on the beach . Lots of variety available. Coffee seems very fresh. Open 24hrs. It could be busy on evening especially on weekends. There is seating option on the top of the cafe where coffee costs 70/- and other option...More
