For breakfast you have very limited options and everything ends up being bland omlet, two toast and butter and jam. The juices are so bad that don't even bother to ask for it. Only coffe was average.

Very nice location, nice food but seating place is less. You should include more seating place to avoid returning of your valued customers.

Restaurant has offered a wide range of food beginning at lunchtime, until late evening. We have experimented and enjoyed everything so far (our 5th day here). Breakfast we take across the street.

I have been to pondicherry, both times we visited this restaurant. It has excellent placing arrangement over looking the beach, we can sit on rock benches with a greenary inside the restaurant. Chicken lasagna is my favorite here 😃

As usual some area is still heritage and kept as French and so does the name. They serve all kind of food but their specialisation is french croissant along with Filter coffee Setting it just opposite to sea and beach road

Owned and run by the government , the main highlight of this cafe is the location, bang on the promenade. The menu has a variety of coffees, to appease the coffee lovers and some basic food including some French cuisine. Food taste is ok but it's worth a visit for the ambience and the beautiful little garden it houses.

Thank Rhucha
