We recently visited for breakfast which is priced at 349 rupee per person including unlimited tea/coffee. My husband had poached eggs and salmon on toast with hollandaise sauce and I had Nutella Pancakes. The eggs were slightly over cooked and the full meal was cold...(perhaps it's the norm to be served cold?), however it was tasty. The Nutella Pancakes were very good. The coffee was ok but Chai Tea was quite tasteless. Staff could have been more attentive and friendly. Perhaps slightly over priced for breakfast.More

This was one of my favorite places in Varkala. Cafe had great ambience, amazing music! Staff was very friendly, warm and efficient. The menu has a little bit of everything, food was very fresh. I ate there just about everyday. I had a special food...requirement and Raj made sure I was able to get what I needed. This place is a must if you are there!More

It was a great place for a vegetarian, health conscious person like me. I loved the chilled out atmosphere.. We could hang around for hours and noone will hurry you out. Amongst the food, I loved the go green smoothie Bowl and the green goodness...bowl. Very fresh and very tasty. The pizzas were tasty too.. And the juices were awesome. The desserts weren't great especially the chia pudding, which was a big big disappointment.More

Been here countless times, they always live up to the expectations. Be it the stay or food, their menu is extraordinary, try Salmon 🍣 egg benedict, best pancakes 🥞 and coffee ☕️ to die for. Also pizza

Ordered dinner as my daughter had seen this online and wanted to experience as it was our 1st time in Varkala. The food was basic ... Cut vegetables given as coleslaw without any dressing and soggy french fries (we had it within 10 mins of...picking up the order) . Spoke to the Hotel who put me on the Ms. Alina the Restaurant incharge ..... To cut short the matter ... Never felt so humiliated when I mentioned the food was cut vegetables given as fine dine food. Sorry Mr. & Mrs Alona ur staff let you down, food is secondary its how you treat humans that matter more. You won't get 2nd chances always so make each experiences great.More

Pros: Great vibe, close to the beach, amazing breakfast Cons: Mosquitos and possibly disease-causing ones... Good sanitation and clean rooms. Do not recommend if not vaccinated

This was our most favorite place to hangout in Varkala. Loved the vibe of the place, the staff and of course, delicious food. The first day, we ordered a bacon pancake and the chicken bennedict - it was a layered pancake topped with fresh cheese,...crispy bacon and a fried egg;for the bennedict it was grilled chicken and poached eggs on toast served with tartare sauce. The second day we treated ourselves to Turkish eggs and an eggs of any kind platter. The turkish eggs were to die for - yogurt topped with chili butter and poached eggs served with pita! We had a banoffee pie for dessert which was great too ! Highly recommend the food and lovely place to unwind!More

Shafi and Vishnu were really great hosters. They were very friendly, polite and always putting themselves in a customers shoes, taking care of all our needs. The food was amazing, good and fresh. The menu is really elaborate and there are plenty of choices, we...highlight the pizzas, they looked like the Italian style. All dishes were presented in a fashion way, such as fruit salad inside of a pineapple and the pizza in a very beautiful wood board. We were going there everyday for breakfast and sometimes for dinner. We loved the place, it is very cosy and great ambiance. As this restaurante is inside of a hotel, the toilet should be proper and clean.More

There are not so many options for veggie bowls or fresh salads in India, including Varkala, so I was sooo excited to find them in the INDA cafe's menu and came to try. Bowls themselves were good enough, but the service... soooo disappointing! 😣 Although...the staff were friendly and the atmosphere of the place was nice. But the waiter and staff mixed up completely EVERYTHING in our order! We ordered Quinoa papaya bowl, Grill bowl and a dessert with masala tea. Underlined twice (it's not our first time in India 😄) that I expect to have bowls first and a dessert along with the tea afterwards and also asked to remove coriander leaves from quinoa bowl. Then they brought tea and dessert FIRST I wasn't happy but decided to stay positive. Next they brought us the quinoa bowl... full of coriander leaves right at the top! Ok, I exhaled and said nothing. But guess what... Instead of Grill bowl we got another one, which were not in the order! 🙈 I mean... seriously? They apologized and all that but it took another half an hour and a talk to finally get what we've ordered! So we wasted LOTS of time and the first positive impression of the place was completely ruined. Didn't expect all that from the place rated so well and advertised as the european standards service cafe.More

When we arrived in Varkala we looked for a highly rated restaurant to get our favorite drink in India - a fresh lime soda! We ended up getting hummus with crudite and pitas, ice cream and a double order of our drinks. The place was...totally relaxing and the staff very friendly. It was a great start to our stay in Varkala.More

The restaurant is quite pricey comparing to other places in Varkala but it’s worth the price. You can find the variety of fresh salads and vegetable bowls which are hard to find anywhere else. The place is a little bit behind the cliff which makes...it more peaceful. Thanks to the fat WiFi it is a perfect place for digital nomads to spend there few hours working.More

I tried almost everything from the menu during my stay and all options was great, fresh and nicely presented. Cafe itself is really...cosy with good wifi connection.
