The cafe has both inside and outside seating. Food quality is good though service is a bit slow. It is on the expensive side and the pastry shop attached had good sweat treats. A treat byitself is to be seated on the outside during the cooler months.Great place to lounge , catch up with friends or just hang out with... More

We'd gone as a group of three couples for a meeting. Since it was too hot to sit in the green and picturesque outside, we sat in AC comfort. We were there from 7 to 11 pm and had a leisurely meeting coupled with good food. All the items we ordered: pizza, Thai green curry, grilled chicken, pumpkin soup, sugarcane... More

A haven for the avid cafe lover! The entrance is absolutely pretty with all its lushness and greenery wrapping the entire place around. The indoor area is stunningly beautiful! The seating area on the corridor outside is impressively done up too.. Boutiques are sprinkled here and there for the shopaholic. To top it all, cappuccino was outstanding! A visit to... More

We were invited for dinner by friends who are local residents of Chennai and found the place both refreshingly modern and but with traditional cuisine along with Western dishes. The ambience lends itself for mid afternoon snacks and teas, with a very interesting set of shops on the second floor.

Actually would have given this place a 3, but it deserves an extra .5 for the ambiance. We had ordered arraibiata - very nicely done; margherita pizza - disappointing in size and taste; red Thai curry - good; red velvet cake - horrible without an ounce of cream cheese. Also, their house water seemed like stale soda / sparkling water... More

Very quite, away from the crowd on mount road. A perfect place you can have a conversation with a person. Good food, better service would be appreciated.

Lovely green oasis in the middle of bustling Chennai. Lovely coffee and my mum had a sugarcane juice concoction that was spectacular.
