International in Varkala

Halfway along the North Cliff, this relaxed and welcoming terrace spot with a handy book exchange remains firmly popular for its inventive salads (perhaps carrot, beetroot and mint, or with lashings of halloumi) and world-roaming breakfasts centred on just-baked bread from the attached bakery, but also whips up pastas, pizzas, momos (Tibetan dumplings), burgers, curries, fresh seafood and cocktails (₹220 to ₹300).
