Pepper House

in Kochi (Cochin)

A beautiful duo of Dutch-style dockside godowns (warehouses) reimagined into a laid-back outdoor cafe and art space with bench-style tables along a gallery overlooking a grassy courtyard. On the menu are salads, soups, pastas, creative Continental breakfasts and the odd Kerala curry.

It's part of a multipurpose art gallery, with an upmarket boutique flaunting Indian-designer fashion and accessories.
