It's a cozy cafe on Varkala north cliff! We had a carrot cake and tsunami frappe. I usually don't like carrot cakes but this one was delicious,it was moist and not too sweet ,just perfect. The frappe had enough strong coffee taste. They had a...cute dog as well!More

The location has changed and it is now slightly indoors. The cold coffee was good, pancake wasn't great. Staff is polite, service was good.

We had a coffee and a smoothie in late afternoon - the coffee was excellent and gone before the guy had time to bring the smoothies. Focussed fully at foreigners and serving all the usual stuff - Pizza, Juice, Smoothies etc. - it also has...rooms but these were not seen.More

As a BRITISH CITIZEN with an Arabic name. I was threatened by 3 staff who knew me well. I have been there many times possibly 50 in 2 years. MODI has ripped this country apart. I was threatened and thrown out and I saw 20...people beat one person to death. This included the staff from Coffee Temple. VISIT OF YOU DARE. YOUR LIFE WILL BE IN DANGER. I BOOKED A FLIGHT AND LEFT THE NEXT MORNING.More

We have just returned from a three week trip to Kerala and as coffee addicts ( we get freshly roasted coffee beans at home) we were on the search for good coffee and Kerala has its own coffee growing areas but finding coffee which had...no added chicory was difficult . This place had good coffee in a chilled out location and we got one of few caffeine kicks here.More

This is where the Western tourists hang out when they want a change from Keralan food. Full of young yoga goers writing in their diaries. Food and drinks were good (although service slow) and the music surprisingly old skool. Great place to hang out and...chat.More
