The Coromandel Cafe is so famous that it has become a part of every traveler’s itinerary to Pondicherry. This upscale cafe is at La Maison Rose, 8, Rue Romain Rolland (Romain Rollan Street). 

During the weekends and holidays, the restaurant is packed. In fact, we could not make it out to the Coromandel Cafe on our first attempt. This was when we decided to go to the nearby Le Dupleix restaurant.

What others say about Coromandel Cafe Pondicherry

I read a couple of reviews about Coromandel Cafe, and the customers have mixed reactions. 

The reviewers felt this restaurant at Pondicherry was the perfect choice for a late afternoon meal. They appreciated the decor, garden, lighting, and architecture.  

Another guest who gave 5 stars on Trip Advisor stated the food was excellent, but the menu was limited. Also, the menu keeps changing according to the seasons.

Another piece of feedback published on Zomato is worth mentioning here.

“The staff was interested in standing huddled in their own conversation. We had South Indian coffee, cappuccino, garlic bread, and crispy prawns. The South Indian coffee was average, but the cappuccino was good. We liked the crispy prawns, but the dip could have been better. The garlic bread not only lacked garlic but was also under-toasted.”

Now you got a hint about what to order at Coromandel Cafe Pondicherry.
