We went to check the place and loved it. they have a small space with a collection of souvenirs. The place is packed with nice aroma and people. Keep in mind the timing as they close early and you can plan to hop for brunch.

Lovely quaint cafe with good coffee and most amazingly authentic croissants ! No wonder it gets so busy. so the trick for us was to go either early for breakfast or an early afternoon coffee. Great place for the kids to hang, as well !

I loved this cafe ... so cosy and quaint . We had lovely food and pancakes , we sat for over an hour and were not rushed away. The staff were friendly. This is a lovely place to stop when touring around beautiful Pondy.
