I am a native of Coonoor and have moved to Chennai and hence this nice place got somehow unnoticed. Last week I decided to give this place a try. A little bit difficult to find as it is hidden inside a bungalow complex on the Coonoor- Kotagiri highway just near a place called Bandhishola. The best part that I liked is that is a pure vegetarian dining outlet serving predominantly world cuisine. The ambience is outstanding and one can have a quiet chat over lunch or coffee or a pastry. The sit out overlooking the hills is a treat and perfect for a romantic sip of coffee. The restaurant inside can possibly accommodate around 20 people at the max and is elegantly designed to reflect the theme. I had a Avocado desert/pastry which was fantastic. You would have to specifically mention "egg less" in your order of pastries as they have varieties with egg too. The beautiful display of the menu at the entrance excites the taste buds. The owner is a very helpful and friendly person who engages with most customers. This is definitely a niche place and they prefer it to be so. A few things however can make the experience better. I feel that the portions need to in line with the prices charged at the premium place or the prices can be on the lower side. I thought a bit more or staffing on the services side would help in bringing more efficiency. The other draw back I thought was that the place is not open for dinner. Having said that, one cannot but appreciate the attention to detail in making the whole place a wonderful dining experience. Given this, I would rate the place at a 3.75 to 4.
