Very good food - amazing pizza and burgers that we had ordered. Would recommend everyone to visit once during their stay in Varkala. Location or view wise there is nothing - just go for good food. Period.

Truly outstanding breakfast and easily the best coffee we have had in India. Great value set price ( 349 rupees) breakfasts. Great variety of meals made to order with super fresh ingredients. Very relaxed atmosphere. Premises is located in an old barn/shed? ...which is truly...gorgeous . Service is slow but ultimately worth waiting for.More

Great find (eventually!) As a lunchtime change from the regular Indian fayre it hit the spot perfectly. Very well varied and thought out menu at reasonable prices. Friendly comfortable vibe. Could be a little lighter interior is my only constructive negative thought.

It is one of the best cafes in Varkala. You can find the cafe recommendations on all sites. I tried Creamy Chicken Pizza and Herb Steak Chicken. I recommend the Herb Steak Chicken. On the ambience, it was one of the best cafes I visited....Enjoy the cafe and trip! Unlike other Cafes in North Clif, it is secluded from the beach.More

This place was such a lucky find. As a first timer in Varkala I went to Cafe Italiano which I found to be so so overrated and devoid of character. So I quickly left and found Inda Cafe which I ended up spending easily 6...hours in the company of 7-8 kittens, dogs and some nice humans. This place has character, and you can tell it’s a labor of love. I was so happy to see them taking care of all these kittens who were freely roaming and playing in the cafe without any fear. That meant everything to me. Also, their Menu is AMAZING.. just pick anything on it and you won’t be disappointed. We tried a salad, pizza, burger, black coffee and iced coffee and everything was more than perfect in taste and presentation! Lots of healthy options too unlike a lot of places around where were just serving limited, convenient but unhealthy food like pancakes. Must must visit in Varkala.More

InDa is probably the best restaurant in Varkala for non-Indian food. The decor is charming and comfortable, though it’s not on the water. It’s very clean (best bathroom in Varkala!). The menu is amazing with fun things like Georgian khachapuri and Turkish pides. Overall the...food is quite good, but be prepared - the breakfast menu is half poached eggs and apparently you can’t really poach an egg of the local chicken species or something and they all come out hard boiled. Anyway, food is good. Service is absolutely terrible - only three wait staff for maybe 15 tables spread across a large area. Wait staff are inexperienced and struggle with communication, consistency, and don’t have good systems in place. There is only one chef so food takes a long time to come out. Also, if they don’t have something you order, they probably won’t tell you until they bring all the other dishes to the table. They have bottles of filtered water on each table but you have to beg for someone to bring you drinking glasses. The owner is kind and helpful but that doesn’t really make up for the poor staff training and disorganization. Generally, I recommend the place and have gone myself several times while in Varkala, but don’t come starving and brace yourself for the poor service.More

InDa Cafe is a lovely cafe, and it has been recently renovated. The food is good, and their specialty is the thin-crust pizza. Their portions are large and the service is cheerful - the only problem is that the cafe is hard to find.

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
