When you are far away from home, you miss certain things. Auroville, in the middle of the eastern world, is full of people from the western world. As rice is the most common food in Asia, Europeans and Americans hardly find their favourites: bread and good cake. Fortunately Auroville is not a blank spot on the culinary map, as it has the most delightful bakery in the whole area. Here your cravings for all kinds of bread and pastry can be fulfilled; sweet dreams come true. But how did it all start?<br><br>Meanwhile, in the main bakery, the first non-Aurovilian workers were employed. They also had to learn from zero. The working circumstances were bad. One oven under a keet roof, no walls, wooden fences, a frame for a second oven, but the metal parts had to be shared. And, of course, termites and rats. "Professionals shook their heads. We had to move the bread up to 3 times from oven to oven, from here to there. A wonder it was eatable", says Otto.<br><br>Together with Jean-Denis he kept the operation going, and with the increasing income from cookies and biscuits plus a loan from Aurelec they were able to build a new Auroville Bakery in Douceur, where it is still situated.
There are places in Pondicherry, where you make countless trips and are still left wanting for more. Auroville Bakery and Restaurant, which is located right at the entrance of this peaceful township is surely the face of it. Living up to the sanctity of Auroville,...Morethank you so much for your comment. sorry to hear that you found the bakery close. hope that you will visit us again.

Tucked away in the Auroville forest, perfectly located next to a boutique hotel, the lovely Afsanah Guest House, Naturellement Garden Cafe has a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere with garden, court yard and roof Seating. With a mostly Mediterranean cuisine, there are also dishes from other parts of the world. Swedish Martina who runs the Garden Cafe, and her italian husband, loves to travel and get inspiration. In the restaurant-kitchen, only the very best and carefully selected ingredients are used, organic whenever available, with plenty of fresh produce from Auroville; milk, cheese, bread, eggs, organic fruit and vegetables, herbs and greens directly from our own kitchen garden. Add to that extra virgin olive oil, Kalamata olives, quinoa and much more... and everything made in-house, from mascarpone to pasta, grissini and foccacia! The vegetarian restaurant put importance on the health aspects of food. The use of refind oils, (normal cooking oils) has been replaced with coldpressed oils, home-made ghee and butter. With its relaxed atmosphere, a variety of good magazines, free Wi-Fi and a children's area, the Garden Cafe is perfect whether you are on your own, having a working lunch or a family outing. Naturellement range of gourmet products are for sale at the reception
I had lunch today at the Naturellement Restaurant in Auroville Tamil Nadu near the Afsaneh Guest House and the Verite Community. Understated elegance, Auroville Style, superb service and very pleasant rustic surroundings. I ordered the pesto-feta pasta with a small side salad which was served very promptly despite the restaurant being nearly full. There are two dining rooms one indoors and another outdoors under a roof cover. Located in a garden and near a forest area. Separate play area for young children. Fully recommend. Hint-bring strong mosquito repellent.

It is located next to Visitors Center in international zone at Auroville. it serves vegan, vegetarian, organic plates, non- vegetarian, Continental and Indian cuisine. They also serve pizza, snacks, ice cream, tea-coffee and juices. Most of the food is grown at Auroville.
We had gone during lunch time and ordered Organic Health Plate which consisted soup, cereals, pulses, vegetables, salad and desert. The food was delicious and quantity was quite big at least for us costing only Rs.295. The prices of other items were also reasonable.
It is open daily from 8 AM to 9 PM but closes early at 5 PM on Mondays. The service was very fast and courteous. The ambiance was excellent and they had both indoor and outdoor sitting. Worth trying !!

Set up in the forest of Sve Dame, Auroville - a beautiful combination of a vegetarian and vegan Mediterranean restaurant and an Arts and crafts shops.
Located in the middle of a forest, this cafe dishes out few of the best vegetarian dishes..we went there after finishing our tour of Auroville and thanks to Google maps, we went through one of the best scenic routes possible which went right through the heart of the forest.
The cafe is quite standard in terms of the Seating and the cutlery used. We were greeted by 2 big rottweilers which was a big plus for the kids. We had their pumpkin soup, hummus, falafel plate. The food was good and service was prompt. We also had their carrot cake and chocolate mousse..these weren't upto the mark but hey nobody was complaining
The café also has few shops inside which sells some t shirts and artsy stuff..do visit if you are in Auroville

ZUKA (earlier known as Choco-la) is Pondicherry 1st and exclusive chocolates and chocolate desserts boutique. Here's a desserts corner that you may find anything and everything to do with chocolate. All chocolate raw materials are sourced from Belgium and France and final products created in Pondicherry. Apart from over 200 chocolate based desserts, the chocolaterie also constantly creates chocolate montages and other interesting ideas through chocolate. If you walk in to ZUKA, look up at the ceiling to find over 800 miniature chocolate butterflies created using chocolate. Some of the most interesting creatives are Chocolate footballs, Cricket kits (the cricket bat was presented to Indian Cricket Captain M.S.Dhoni), 12Ft long Vintage Chocolate Train, 2 Mtr tall Chocolate Statue of Liberty and lots more.. ZUKA, has won many accolades including BBC good Food Magazine's as India's No.1 Chocolate Boutique in terms of quality. ZUKA has professionally trained chefs by French team of Chocolates and Desserts Chefs. We at ZUKA, would love to serve you and look forward to your visit.
For someone who is a chocolate lover, this place is heaven. This is truly a small 'Willy Wonka' world. And incidently, my absolute favourite is the 'the willy wonka bar'. I just literally go into chocolatey heaven whenever take a bite. My other favourites are the liquor chocolates, the dark and the white truffles.
(I blame Zuka for my weight gain!) I would visit Zuka again and again. It's one of my most favourite place to visit in the evening.

We're a lovingly run, family-owned restaurant, situated in Kuilapalayam, right near the heart of Auroville, in sunny South India. We've drawn our inspiration from the shores of Greece but we bring you flavours from all over the world. Healthy, home-style cooking is our passion and joy and we serve it all up in a relaxed and comfortable setting, with a smile.
We were looking for some North Indian food and found this place to have quite tasty options( although that could have been because of lack of options elsewhere ?). Food was good. Can have once here.

Fabulous service, fantastic food.
My two boys, wife and I ate several meals at this quaint charming place by the Serenity beach and were never disappointed. It's a bit slow and because the ingredients are fresh and cooking top notch it's worth the wait. We would rate it as the top spot to eat at while in Pondicherry ...Just don't go there if you are in a rush..
