Great coffee, proper espresso, best on the cliff. Service can be a bit slow, but only in an Indian fashion. Go with it and relax! Friendly staff and pizzas looked great. Good atmosphere.

We have visited Coffee Temple on many occasions while staying in Varkala the coffee is excellent and, most of the time the food and service was okay, but last night while attempting to pet one of the cafe owners dogs, I was bitten on my right hand! We were re-assured by a member of staff that the dog wasn´t unhealthy,... More

First time I got here, I had a really good dinner. But next time I had banouffee pie which wasn't actually a pie, wasn't sweet and really was disgusting. And the mango juice was fake. It's so sad that they just spoiled my evening. (((

This place has a good vibe and good food. The service is quite slow but that's characteristic of varkala.

After being recommended the coffee house, we waited a long time for our food & had to repeat ourselves! A few hours later and my partner has been sick ever since! Not a great part of our holiday to say the least!

Great food, drinks and staff! I went here almost every day and never had a bad experience. They also play some amazing background music. The pizzas are the best I've had in India.

Busy spot in varkala, always full when we were there or passed by! We went for coffee which is very good and had delicious breakfast also- the power was out when we visited for breakfast but they still were able to serve food, just no coffee or smoothies. I would definitely recommend for breakfast!

We saw all the reviews online and were a bit sceptical thinking people might be overselling this place but frankly we couldn't find anything wrong ! Just to give a more detailed write up The coffee... More

Our coffee is ground to order, and freshly made cakes are made throughout the day.Hard to beat in Varkala We have a new menu (3 years in the making!) Mexican dishes served all day. A huge array of breakfast items served from 630 a.M until lunchtime at least. 27 chilled / icy fruit juices plus a dozen smoothies to choose from. If you're after some authentic keralan dishes, try our acclaimed Masala Dosa , and one or two other indian breakfast items. Our new list of snacks includes the popular veggie burger and falafel wrap, cheesey chips. Recently added to Coffee Temple is our Wood Fired Pizza Oven , and we now serve them, with accompanying Italian dishes from lunch till 10.pm
