I am still thinking about their salted caramel mocha and chocolate waffles. I have never had such smooth tasting coffee and delicious waffles in my life. I never thought waffles could be made so well. Definitely a place to go for breakfast, lunch or dessert!

Lunch after a visit to auroville. Limited choices but excellent presentation and food. Limited amount of seating under air conditioning. Slow service and but happy staff willing to assist. Recommended- worth a visit in good weather.

Grilled cheese (cheddar & gouda) on homemade wheat bead was great. Fresh fruit smoothies were delicious and refreshing. Looking forward to trying the breakfast menu.
