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 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

Coffee was fantastic in this chilled out courtyard/cafe just at the start of the main tourist path in Varkala. Food & Juice also great and nice friendly staff. Clearly very popular with tourists although some did seem to hog the best seats/tables for a long...time!More

Ate and drank here several times over our two week holiday. Staff were friendly and smiley although a little slow at times (but this is India in a yoga resort so slow is ok!!). A great place to just stop and read your book, catch...up on the free WiFi, or just enjoy the view.More

The other reviews are right - this is a good place to go for service and food. Relaxed atmosphere and decent eating, although the “fish mole” I got wasn’t what I expected. Instead of fish served with mole sauce Mexican style it was more like...a curry. But it was fresh and tasted good. You can get Indian food here but don’t expect an Indian experience. Most of the clientele are European or North American, mainly young people travelling around the country.More

A little exxy but for a really good coffee for me it was worth the price! Yummy fruit bowl with banana, mango, pineapple, grapes and pomegranate. Heaps of juice and smoothie options as well.
