We went here twice during our stay in Pondy, once to have ice cream in the night around 11 pm and early next morning... More

Service was not really pleasant but the food was so bad we barely noticed. Very mediocre mushroom toast, with canned mushrooms, and a creation they've named lasagna and was absolutely inedible. No lasagna sheets involved. We complained and they've claimed it's lasagna and showed absolutely no concern. Needless to mention we still had to pay for it though we left... More

Food is just average. For food lover standards probably below average. Service also as this seem government run cafe. The only good thing is location, 24hrs and accept credit card.

This popular joint is managed by govt tourism department. The staff definitely look like that, unlike the professionals in hospitality industry, but the setup and food is totally different. You get everything, from lasagnas to burgers. The food is good and the ambience is great. Nothing great about the furniture or cutlery, but sitting besides the sea and grabbing some... More

This is in a old heritage building right on the main road next to the beach. The filter coffee is excellent and so are the small eats. absolutely loved the carrot cake with my coffee watching the sunset.

We came here at around 2 in the afternoon. It's a beautiful place with an enormous view of Bay of Bengal. Very close to the statue of Mahatma Gandhi. Menu is all about snacks & light food. As per the menu it's open 24 hours & if it's real it will be a real treat for beach lovers.

This is a wonderful coffee place with a beautiful setting. Sit in the midst of openness. Just facing the sea side, you enjoy the cool sea breeze while sipping on your tea or coffee, you have some good munching stuff as well. Ok priced, worth a visit if you are walking by the Promenade. You can relax and enjoy the... More
