Lovely Cafe on the Main Street to the Periyar park. Enjoyed the Egg sandwich made by the owner. Returned to have an evening snack. Has good music and good atmosphere. Owner's presence makes it warm and hospitable.

The menu was great if you want to eat western food, don't go here expecting to find Indian. We were very pleased with our meals as we wanted a good western meal (not easily found in India- understandably!), and got just that. Although we didn't try them, we loved the sound of the pitta pockets! The portion sizes are great,... More

We came here on a break from curried food as our stomachs were suffering a bit. The british owner and indian staff were really helpful and took us through portion sizes and options. The food was very good but each portion coukd easily serve two which makes it alot cheaper. We had the bison meatballs and pasta(huge) chicken burger (tasty)... More

So nice to have some European food for a change during our India trip. Really enjoyed our meals here, tasty big portions of simple home cooked meals. Dave the owner is a legend, really friendly and helpful with tips on places to go and things to do. Even helped us organise out taxi to the airport. Can't thank him enough!... More

What an amazing place. The food was outstanding but I've never seen service like this in India. Two very friendly gentlemen that ran the show- Guddu & Mikey, I believe we're there names. They were SO friendly and welcoming. We both got the veggie burger and it was unreal, highly recommend going here! Just meeting the people is worth it... More

We visited this cafe based on the online reviews. A very spacious and bright / cheerful place. The look of which is enhanced by colourful drawings in chalk on the black board by customers.

During our stay in Thekkady we were able to visit our place a few times. 'Our Place' has only recently changed restaurant location from across the street so I do not have any feedback for the last location but the owners were incredibly hospitable and friendly, the food was amazing and we had a great time speaking to everyone there...

Description
Our Place is alive and well in Kumily. But it has moved to a better, more convenient location. If you want to find it now then head for Lake Road and the Park Gates from Ambadi Junction. After a short walk you should be able to spot the Coffee Inn on the right hand side. Keep walking a few meters and you will see the next building on the left is the new home for OurPlace. The new restaurant will be more spacious and with a few extra tables. This should be very welcome news for all of the many visitors who appreciated the special service offered by Shailee and David. Much as we love Indian food, one always misses the cooking of Europe. One smell or taste of David's bread will have you back in Europe for an instant. Not that you want to go back but simply that the taste bud's feel young again. The food is a touch of home and can vary from day to day, Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all catered for. David and Shailee say that they are opening from 9 am to 10 pm so there should be plenty of opportunities to sample their menu and enjoy the conversation So if Our Place could be better then it is. So here's to the old Our Place and the wonderful memories it left and here's to the new Our Place and the future.

Please note as we have a small and friendly team,it is always advisable to book for a party of Six or more, to avoid too long waiting times. we are closed for between 3 and 7.00
