Opposite the parade ground, this beautiful restored bungalow is all that remains of three 17th-century Dutch-era houses built using materials from demolished Portuguese churches. It's now an arts-and-culture centre, showcasing up-and-coming artists with performances and changing exhibitions.

The tranquil garden cafe serves fruit platters, French toast and appam (rice pancakes) with veggie stew (₹120 to ₹350).
