Having long been a member of Accor advantage plus, we had planning to visit Sofitel – particularly its restaurants – but somehow kept being cancelled, till we decided to visit Pondicherry cafe for breakfast one sunday morning.
The entrance is quite nice and welcoming, the Pondicherry being situated on the right side once you enter. It was half full at 8.30 am with mostly foreigners – guests and from surrounding area too.
Taking a look around the area, the menu seemed more or less similar to other 5* & its ilk. A wide range of fruits and fresh juices, breads from their own bakery, breakfast items from the South – idli, vada, dosa; North – parantha, puri with subzi, West – Pohe, eggs, bacon etc East – some japanese/chinese sticky rice etc.
Between the 3 of us we tried practically everything except the japanese/chinese menu. Overall the fruits, breads, juices, parantha, puri subzi were pretty good, with dosa & idli following a close second though the chatni & sambhar could have been better.
By the time it was 10 am the place was completely full, with an equal mix of Indian and Foreigners. The service was constantly impeccable and for a change, I liked the tea – which I do not drink normally at a 5*
