Located in serene Gopalapuram area, it is old bungalow converted into a cafe offering snacks, tit bits, coffee, tea and other hot and cold beverages. Prices are high. Friends and couples flock here to gossip and have peaceful private time.

Amethyst Cafe has a lovely garden full of foliage with tucked away entrance, great for those who shuns the public eye.. As a cafe...the food quality is ok with prices on par with star hotels and very slow service.

The cafe has both inside and outside seating. Food quality is good though service is a bit slow. It is on the expensive side and the pastry shop attached had good sweat treats.

We'd gone as a group of three couples for a meeting. Since it was too hot to sit in the green and picturesque outside, we sat in AC comfort. We were there from 7 to 11 pm and had a leisurely meeting coupled with good food. All the items we ordered: pizza, Thai green curry, grilled chicken, pumpkin soup, sugarcane... More

The seating area on the corridor outside is impressively done up too.. Boutiques are sprinkled here and there for the shopaholic. To top it all, cappuccino was outstanding! A visit to... More
