Pepper Cafe

Housed in an erstwhile spice warehouse in Fort Kochi, Pepper Café is a welcoming place that exudes an old world charm.

What was once a dilapidated warehouse, is now renovated into a beautiful café, with a grassy courtyard. The original details of the building, like the wooden roof, the stone lamps, big windows have been retained but updated tastefully. It has a minimalist feel, the white walls providing a perfect foil to the teal accents in the room. A walk around the courtyard leads you outside to an open space looking out into the waters; a lovely place for lingering on, watching the boats and ferries go by.

This café is part of the Avenue group of hotels and restaurants. The food and service is excellent – same as at all other Avenue restaurants I’ve been to. It is a delightful place to stop for a quick lunch, after you get off the ferry and set out to explore Fort Kochi.

Fort Kochi

Fort Kochi – has got a rich history dating all the way back to the BC era. A classic postcard representation of Fort Kochi is the Chinese finishing nets. These nets were installed by the Chinese in the 14 century (they are still functional..:-p). Once (and even now to a certain extent) a hub for spices trade, this fishing town is now a popular tourist place for visitors to God’s Own Country. Now you can see lots of cafe’s and old bungalows converted into resorts…
