Had the best papaya juices here. They also make tasty food. But go get a papaya ginger and lemon juice. They are the best. And also the service is super friendly

Benny’s Cafe must be one of the loveliest and most down to earth places in Varkala! Bright, airy, tastefully furnished this family run daytime cafe stands out from the crowd with its cooked to order menu using only the freshest produce and many homegrown items...(spices, coffee beans from their family farm). But the one thing even more consistent than the good food, coffee and fresh juices is the friendly and personable service by the owner and his wife. And the ice coffee is legend!More

Lina and Benny create a warm and beautiful place. They have a little cafe and a shop with homegrown spices and an excellent selection of coffee, books in different languages (English, German, French, Dutch) postcards and other little things. The fruit salad with yoghurt and...the fresh made juices are fantastic. My favorite is pineapple/turmeric. Will visit the place tomorrow again because I haven’t had the famous ice coffee, yet.More

We can highly recommend Benny's Café. We have discovered his place already in 2017. Situated between the beach and the temple, you can enjoy a cup of espresso from his own cultivation in a very pleasant, generous atmosphere. There is also a variety of home-grown...high-quality spices with which we like to stock up again and again. Benny is one of the reasons for us to come to Varkala! Keep it up and hopefully see you soon! Ute and Jürgen, Heidelberg, GermanyMore

Great little place for delicious tea and snacks - recommend the homemade yoghurt and granola! We were in Varkala for a week and visited almost every day! Lovely ambience and Benny also sells just about everything too - great natural products and lovely people.

I've been coming to Benny's and Lena's place for a couple of years. The cold-coffee is a killer-musthave. Breakfast is wholesome and value. One can get fresh spices, tea and coffee as well as a some essentials like cigarettes, tobacco, soaps, herbal oils, books, and...the like.More

Nice place with shop and snack dishes. But it is worths visiting for ice coffee which is really fantastic. And so are the people. I got a loyalty card and now have to go back to varkala :-)

Bennys cafe is a must if you wanna experience the real Varkala atmosphere! Here all the local, winther retreating foreigners and yogis hang out reading the last news of the Hindu news paper and enjoying the great, homemade food, not to mention the famous ice...coffee! Benny and his wife are very friendly, always serving with a smile and warm comment to go. My best recommendations really!!More
