Quaint and beautiful with a funky charm in every every element, Artika Art Galkery Cafe is truly an artistic endeavour at serving delicious good food, made with local ingredients, organic and fresh! The walk into the cafe itself livens you up with an isle of dense plants and trees, lending a rather lush positive vibe that opens up into a... More

This is a gorgeous little cafe which is rightfully popular with expats wanting come home food and comfort. It's a beautiful setting, very friendly service and the food was delicious! I loved the museli with fruit salad and yoghurt and the kombo breakfast was heaps of food for a reasonable price - an egg, toast, baguette, condiments, juice, a smoothie,... More

It opens early morning so makes it a good place for breakfast. The decor is like a old style house converted into a coffee shop with wooden lounge chairs and big center tables. They have beautiful cats to give you company during your meals. Great combos available for breakfast.

A small homey place for evening snacks and tea. Good for little hangout with friends, for discussions, good environment for students to make some assignments.

We stumbled upon this cafe and managed to easily find a seat. The cafe offers a range of delicious foods and drinks (we loved the crepes and coffee). The cafe also has a gallery and small shop, which are worth a look.

While spending the day in Pondicherry I was desperate to find wifi before stumbling upon Artika. The cafe is outdoors, and has a totally chill vibe. It's nice, quiet and in a lovely garden. Truely a little oasis in the city. The best part for me was the strong wifi. I had to do a lot of things online, so... More
