Kasha Ki Aasha

Cafe in Puducherry (Pondicherry)

A friendly all-female team whips up great pancake breakfasts, lunches and cakes on the thatched rooftop of this colonial-era-house-turned-craft-shop-and-cafe, where the all-veg fusion food includes 'European thalis' and 'Indian enchiladas' (which feel a little overpriced for what you get). The floaty fabrics and leather sandals for sale downstairs come direct from their makers. Live music Saturday night.
