Welcome to Kasha Ki Aasha, Art Boutique and Cafe, in the center of the beautiful heritage city of Pondicherry, India.
We specialise in unique, hand-made products from across India displayed on heritage pieces typical of this restored Tamil home. Hosted by local women who greet you with South Indian hospitality you will find browsing through designer garments, shawls, semi-precious and costume jewelry, natural body products, home accessories and beautiful bags of all kinds an enriching experience. A special focus on Indian photography and art offers a unique insight into the traditions and culture of India through prints, books, magazines.
Visit our garden cafe under the roof pandal for organic coffees, homemade cake, our European Thali or a traditional dosai with fresh coconut chutney. There is no better place to while away a sultry afternoon. You may even find yourself taking a nap after using our free wi-fi. Many people do.
