Description
The French Door is where "classic meets contemporary" cafe and restaurant located at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. The concept for the restaurant started when we acquired a hundred year old french door at an auction house in Puducherry, Tamil Nadu. While we are primarily french in our ambience and service, our menu is an array of Indian Fusion and Modern European. Our entire team is dedicated towards making your culinary experience unique and memorable, one that you will want to keep sharing with your family and dearest friends.
