We spent every single day there. The food is awesome. Theyve got a HUGE menue, with food from everywhere. Whatever you try: its sooo GOOD! ...especially the Pizza... And all juices! The staff are great people. Always helpful, always smiling, always friendly. It really felt like sharing a "living room", next to our "home sweet home" the arabian soul guesthouse.

They have the best coffee and now in season they also have the Pizza. The dough is made fresh and they use a wood fired oven. The pizza’s are thin crust with good amount of toppings. So if you...

I've been in Varkala for around 6 days, and Coffee Temple was always the place to go. The food is delicious and the place is so cosy - we chilled out for hours, writing, talking and reading.

Hate to be a coffee snob, but hellb its good to get a decent cup of coffee that's not burnt. Food is good, and if you miss your puppies at home there are plenty of friendly dogs to pat.

Food and service both good. During the current currency crisis they had run out of change when we tried to pay. They simply said 'call back when you have the right money' nice people

A person i am assuming tourist only was playing music on lapp. We ordered earl grey and masala chai 50rs both. Along with carrot cake. Tea was really nice and refreshing. Cake was ok too sweet and not spongy at all.... More

If you've ever been to India, you'll understand when I say that you end up craving western food. My partner and I travelled Kerala for 3 weeks, eating in all types of places, and although we enjoyed the local/traditional food, our tummies grew tired of it. Although most restaurants have western food on the menu, it's usually pretty awful. The... More

Description
We want you to feel comfortable and looked after in a lovely setting overlooking the main beach, with classic tunes, free WiFi ,filtered water and newspapers, friendly staff and dogs. Our coffee is ground to order, and freshly made cakes are made throughout the day.Hard to beat in Varkala We have a new menu (3 years in the making!) Mexican dishes served all day. A huge array of breakfast items served from 630 a.M until lunchtime at least. 27 chilled / icy fruit juices plus a dozen smoothies to choose from. If you're after some authentic keralan dishes, try our acclaimed Masala Dosa , and one or two other indian breakfast items. Our new list of snacks includes the popular veggie burger and falafel wrap, cheesey chips. Recently added to Coffee Temple is our Wood Fired Pizza Oven , and we now serve them, with accompanying Italian dishes from lunch till 10.pm
