Food was good but the ambience was not upto the mark. They dont serve you plates and cutlery unless you repeatedly ask for. Since it was hot so we preferred to sit inside but there was no ac so have to adjust with one standing...fan which didnt help much.More

This cafe is off the main street, next to an alleyway and part of No18 Hotel. We had breakfast here and the meals, juices and specialty coffee on offer was 5 star with taste, presentation and service. If we had more time in the area...we would be eating here every day. Absolutely delicious, and highly recommended!More

If you look for a cozy place for coffee or breakfast, just give this place a shot. Very cozy interior, mostly wooden furniture and good music!

Great little cafe for breakfast lunch or light dinner. I have had an excellent omelet, delicious spicy Kerala chicken burger and Greek Salad here and the come is excellent. Good wifi and they don’t push you out the door so make sure to stop in

I was visiting Kochi in December and I stopped at Qissa for a quick bite before I continued exploring fort Kochi. I ordered a chocolate cake and an americano . The chocolate cake came soaked in chocolate sauce and was quite delicious . It is...in a hotel property so there was a nice and clean bathroom.More

It's not easy to find a cafe operational around 8am in the morning, but we're glad to find Qissa open. The decor and ambience is amazing. Both inside and outside sitting space is so green. We ordered watermelon feta salad along with regular toast and...coffee. The food was good and everything was balanced in spices. There are many cafe in fort Kochi but this one had a different feel to it. Definitely worth a visit once.More

I'm living in Fort Kochi and I'd never recommend to anyone going to this place. The staff is rude and incompetent and the food is bad and expensive. There are lots of better places in Fort Kochi for eating or having a coffee

The food quality here is great and good value for money. Just be aware that all the 'toast' comes out as 'garlic toast' so if you are allergic/intolerant or just prefer fresh breath in the morning just let the staff know so that they can...accomodate accordingly.More

Awesome Continental Breakfast !! Yes, this place serves some awesome Omelettes, combinations like American Breakfast combos in a beautiful ambiance both inside in AC interiors and outside in a lush green environment. Great vibe, good food and quick, efficient service make this place a must...visit for anyone in Fort Kochi. The best part is that it opens at 8 AM making it ideal for you to start your day with a good meal. It also serves different fresh juices as per availability of fruits. We tried the orange juice which was good.More

I like this place, very nice people, nice food. I can recommend this place. But unfortunately sometimes is quite cold there, when outside temperature is over 30°C, the temperature inside is too low.

Looked at countless menus walking the streets in search of a suitable place to eat that looked clean and had reasonable prices. Nearly gave up hope until we reached this little gem! And we are so glad we did. It was late so we were...looking for a tea time meal, and thought with it being a cafe that it would only do breakfast and dinner type meals, but we were pleasantly surprised to find their tea time options on the board and we were spoilt for choice. We did end up going for the more western option of a chicken burger and a cheese burger as we have been in India sampling the local cuisine for quite some time now. They were both delicious and much cheaper than all the other restaurants we had passed along the way. Staff were also so lovely and very helpful. Highly recommend.More
