Read about this in one of the travel magazines and decided to make a visit. Food options are very less. Crepes were not upto the mark. Juices were fresh though. Not worth a visit in my opinion.

Very homely store with many curated items. Everything is organic or homemade. On the roof top is a quiet restaurant bar with beer and wine, alongwith a small selection of food available. At times they have some music events. Light on the pocket.

This is a wonderful little cafe above the craft shop on the ground floor which provides an oasis of calm in the otherwise busy little streets of Pondicherry. Food was delicious though a shame they had run out of mango chutney. Equally a shame was...More
