We stopped by for lunch on our first day in Varkala. We both thoroughly enjoyed our food, and had lovely juices too. It’s got a great view and the service is good.

We had breakfast here twice and dinner one night during our Varkala stay. The food and coffee was good and they had a lot more choices on their menu than the other places that we visited. We would definitely recommend.
