This is a must visit place. If you're a vegetarian then you should definitely eat here. One of my friends is a vegetarian and we couldn't find any good veg food there other than this place. The foods really good. I've tried chicken schnitzel and it was scrumptious and filling ofc. Whatever we guys ordered taste great.

We've been to the coffee temple for about five times during our two days stay. The service is very nice. The juices, shakes and coffee were just awesome and all beverages containing ice or water are prepared with filtered water. We tried besides the Indian food the pizza which is prepared originally in a stone oven, delicious. Toilets are more... More

Enjoyed the views, people watching but especially the double espresso macchiato. Great real (Italian) coffee for around 100 rupees.

We ordered hot chocolate and enchiladas. The chocolate was watery and not good. But the enchiladas were terrible - it was just fried vegetables in a lasagne like dish. It did not even taste fresh. When we complained to the manager, he took the enchilada of the bill but commented to his staff derogatorily that maybe we had never eaten... More

I expected a lot more from this place as it was recommended by a friend. We ordered a hot chocolate and enchiladas. While the hot chocolate was good, the enchiladas were quite unappetizing. We were also disappointed with the customer service from the management as despite discounting the price of the dish, they were unreceptive to feedback - telling us... More

That's a great place for watching sunset and drinking cold coffee. I tend to end my day here, talking with friends and having some pies, latte or frappe. Nice service and really great seaview.

Best coffee and just a great social atmosphere to meet up with new or old friends. Great menu, reasonably priced. One of my favorite hangouts.

The guys at Coffee Temple really looked after us during our stay in Varkala. The location is top of the cliff strip overlooking the ocean. You can have your morning coffee (which is the best in Varkala) watching the surfers and the fishing boats coming in and out. Breakfast, juices and smoothies were our main focus with the favourites being... More

Our coffee is ground to order, and freshly made cakes are made throughout the day.Hard to beat in Varkala We have a new menu (3 years in the making!) Mexican dishes served all day. A huge array of breakfast items served from 630 a.M until lunchtime at least. 27 chilled / icy fruit juices plus a dozen smoothies to choose from. If you're after some authentic keralan dishes, try our acclaimed Masala Dosa , and one or two other indian breakfast items. Our new list of snacks includes the popular veggie burger and falafel wrap, cheesey chips. Recently added to Coffee Temple is our Wood Fired Pizza Oven , and we now serve them, with accompanying Italian dishes from lunch till 10.pm
