The bakery shuts at five, and you should definitely try to reach before four because their stock gets over extremely fast. By the time it's past four, most of the items will be over. Their food doesn't stay for longer than a day, and they...More

We hadn't really enjoyed our visit to the ashram(acolytes were fairly rude and obnoxious in directing visitors), but the promise of French cheese drew us in here. Didn't buy any cheese, but they had good baking and crafts. So we bought some jewellery, baking and...More

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.

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.
