A bakery you must experience, if you are staying in and around Auroville. You had to experience omelette..which is a meal by itself. If you are visiting the place for quick breakfast, give a thought.. it takes minimum 30 mins to serve.

Hello All! What a treat! I enjoyed both the bakery and café behind the bakery. Delicious food and great vibe to read a book, meet people and generally hang out.

It is a regular bakery and nothing is great about it. It is very average and the restaurant behind it too is very average. Though when I say average it goes with the thought of auroville lifestyle

A good mix of local and western breakfast. Plant based options a plenty. Good coffee and juices. Was hoping for a wider and more authentic French breakfast and croissant options. The cafe is a good place to chat over breakfast and free wifi.

Nice ambiance and great desserts. Especially the egg dishes were amazing. It's a perfect place for brunching.

Property is warm and welcoming . Seating areas are adequate and the orders come with some extras - butter,cheese and preserves. We visited at breakfast time ,not too busy . Milk shakes/smoothies call them whatever were okay. Lacked punch in terms of flavour and content....More

When you are far away from home, you miss certain things. Auroville, in the middle of the eastern world, is full of people from the western world. As rice is the most common food in Asia, Europeans and Americans hardly find their favourites: bread and good cake. Fortunately Auroville is not a blank spot on the culinary map, as it has the most delightful bakery in the whole area. Here your cravings for all kinds of bread and pastry can be fulfilled; sweet dreams come true. But how did it all start?

Meanwhile, in the main bakery, the first non-Aurovilian workers were employed. They also had to learn from zero. The working circumstances were bad. One oven under a keet roof, no walls, wooden fences, a frame for a second oven, but the metal parts had to be shared. And, of course, termites and rats. "Professionals shook their heads. We had to move the bread up to 3 times from oven to oven, from here to there. A wonder it was eatable", says Otto.

Together with Jean-Denis he kept the operation going, and with the increasing income from cookies and biscuits plus a loan from Aurelec they were able to build a new Auroville Bakery in Douceur, where it is still situated.
