“Best chocolate croissant and bread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

You can get good and fresh bread for a concorrential price, good croissants (I like the chocolate and the cinnamon ones) for a good price. The price of the cakes is a bit higher and they're not excellent - remember they're not typical south indian products!
I suggest to try the atta-maida bread, difficult to get it sometimes. The employees are nice.

“Yummylicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Absolutely mouth watering desserts. They also have very good pizzas. Try their chocolate croissants they are to die for. We bought one and couldn't resist ourselves to buy another one. A must try.

“Blink! and its a big miss!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

The entrance to this bakery used to be very discreet and easily missed. The location has now shifted to a few yards away from the older place and the bakery is a little more modern, but the food is still outstanding. It is best to go first thing in the morning - croissants, tarts and banana bread is fresh off the oven. There is also some place to sit but its better as a take away spot. Soe of the old world charm remains and the smell is superb!

“Best place for authentic French-style bread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

If you're in Pondicherry, then you must try some French bread - preferably authentic and hygenic. Then, this is the best place. It is about 5-6 kms from Pondicherry town. So you got to ride/drive here. There is hardly any other travel option. My recommendation is to try out their Quiche and tarts. Very good! You can't get them for the same price anywhere else. So it is quite an economical idea for a French-style breakfast in Pondicherry. Things sell out pretty quick in this restaurant. So it is better to go early.

“Auroville Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Auroville is a great place to visit and the best known attraction for visiting Pondicherry. However I did not expect such a good bakery there. It was a pleasant surprise. We had a great breakfast there.Very tasty puffs, high quality tarts,banana cake and excellent coffee. Price is also reasonable. Location is very good as Auroville is surrounded by villages.
