As one of the few places open for breakfast we thought we’d give it a try. It was a pleasant surprise. A very generous sized omelette that was very tasty. The Coffee and tea was quite drinkable. Worth a try.

Funky modern cafe run by locals. Great atmosphere and opens early. We just went coffee and it was excellent, made with Italian stove coffee makers. Staff very helpful with advice. Will be back.

My partner and I ate at this cafe as we were after a small lunch. The cafe is very trendy and plays good music. The food was delicious. We even had the chocolate cake which was amazing. Would recommend this place. Prices are also good.

Somewhere on this planet is a land...where stories are born and reborn with every passing moment. A land where there are trees that will tell you stories that no book can. Where stories wake up in playgrounds every morning and go to sleep with the waves every night. It is a land where stories smell of cinnamon and pepper and coconut... where stories are trapped in fishing nets and yet roam free in every heart. It is a land where stories have no borders and speak every language...and are found in every pair of eyes...happy stories, sad stories...stories of all the yesterdays that went past us and every tomorrow that is waiting to happen. You can call this land a piece of paradise or swargam or jannat. It is where you are the story-teller... and you are also the story. Yes... somewhere on earth is a land called Fort Kochi. It is the land of Qissa, ...Qissa...that Persian word for story..... We all have our Qissas and we are a part of countless Qissas. Come share, find and celebrate Qissas at Qissa ! Where there is 'A Story in every Sip'
