Hello Sagar, I went to Pondicherry last December so sharing a list of my personal favourites : 1. Anantha Heritage Hotel - most humble and kind staff, food is cooked with so much love and they also helped us in renting a bike at a cheap price. 2kms away from the French Colony and walking distance to all the prominent places like the Promenade, Aurobindo Ashram etc. It's location in Tamil quarter overseeing a temple and the temple tank makes it special. 2. Cafe options :
*The Lighthouse in Promenade Hotel - is very romantic with a rooftop view
*Cafe' des Arts *Kashi Ki Asha - rooftop
*Eat My Cake - freshly homemade bread, pastries and brunch options. It's a pastel blue and pink building which looks like a doll house.
~South Indian food
*Surgura 3. Auroville - you must take a day trip there. They also have a 'Sound Garden' which is a hidden gem behind Auroville. Visit the famous 'Auroville Bakery' for mouth water brownies and pasteries and if you love pizza then 'Tanto Pizzeria' is very popular.
