Good place.but not for kids.they dont have a separate smoking lounge,nor do they do have a no smoking zone...despite asking them to do something about it,they only asked us to change tables(to avoid sitting next to another customer who was smoking). When I cordially put...forward a suggestion, the staff proudly replied that they had been fined quite a few times by the health authorities for allowing public smoking,but they can't antagonize any of their customers.numerous customers who had visited with their families had also suggested it seems,but they dont care.More

This was our go-to breakfast/brunch spot in Kovalam. During our 10 day stay we must have visited 5 or 6 times. We love Indian food, but as tourists from Europe we appreciated some breakfasts with eggs, muesli, yoghurt, fruit and the like. Service was really...good, food was of good quality. Particularly like the wide range of breakfast options. Was relaxing to sit out of the sun but look over the ocean. Highly recommend!More

Good food, great view, and German cake, what is not to like. And a great range of mock and real cocktails.

We are returning customers here last visit was 10 years ago. They sell some German and international dishes and Asian fusion type foods. They do great coffee, cakes, breakfast, English, American, continental. We feel everything is very hygienic here. I had a decent chicken coconut...curry, and we chose German options on other occasions all very nice. Great ambience. Good customer service. Very nice indeed!!More

Aubergine-tomato-cheese casserole tastes really good. Unfortunately, my husband got a bad stomach after this visit. Maybe from the raw coriander on his dish?

We loved the German Bakery. As it's upstairs, overlooking the beach the views are excellent. You can also get reliable wifi. Their snacks and small meals are great as you often don't want a big meal in the heat. The peanut masala is really tasty...and the Rasam soup with vegetables is absolutely delicious, if a bit challenging for the faint hearted. The pakoras are good, a bit chunkier than at most places and we really liked the cheese omelette. The decor is clean, comfy and attractive - altogether it's an ideal spot for a leisurely lunch.More

Average Italian calamari, go find another spot that most definitely has better food. Lassi and ginger ale weren’t good either

Accidentally discovered this place. Really good choice at Kovalam beach to chill and relax in the shade, enjoying healthy options.

We visited The German Bakery in November for dinner during or Kovalam sojourn. Great authentic German dishes along with many other choices overlooking the beach. Nice vibe, friendly service. Well recommended.

We booked once as we had a large breakfast group on Boxing Day. However, even though it was one of the busiest days in the year, we noticed that people were still coming in and out on a casual basis. We were the only ones... More
