Come to Le Cafe to have a wide selection of coffee. The coffee is good. The snacks and sweets are good. Give the Cheesecake and brownie a try. But the standout is the location. Best location in all pondy. fantastic view in the evening here.

If you can ignore poor cleanliness,rude staff,over priced items then this is a place where you can quietly sit ,sip your coffee and watch the waves.Staff have attitude problem,tries to manipulate your order as per their whims.They find it difficult to return the change.

Its a good place to sit and relax on a beach side. But the coffee,, And the service is poor. Self service is a mess. Great place to sit but you need to order something to sit there.
