The setting is wonderful at this cafe-restaurant way up the hills at the spice garden, and it puts you in the mood for a fruit juice or a crunchy salad as soon as you sit down. Seafood and sandwiches also feature on the menu. Save room for ice creams: they're confected fresh on the premises with fruits from the garden.

The Sunday planteur (from-the-garden) buffet (Rs 400) is a popular weekly event.
