Indian coffee house is one of the oldest cafés in India. Indian Coffee House is a restaurant chain in India, run by a series of worker co-operative societies. It is such a place that cannot be sufficed in a few words. The history of the Indian coffee house is very interesting. The India Coffee House chain was started by the Coffee Cess Committee in 1936 and grew continuously. The first branch of the Indian coffee house in Chandigarh was opened in 1964 in sector 17 and has since branched out in 2 other locations, Punjab University and Sector 36 Chandigarh.
Continuing the historical tradition of hosting meetings for freedom fighters and government officials this coffee house is still very famous among the bureaucrats of the city. Lawyers, doctors, and various other officials regularly visit this café for meetings and lunches. In recent times it has also become a family and student favorite spot to eat as it offers good quality food for a very nominal price.
What to expect?
Indian coffee house offers a simple yet elegant menu that consists of south Indian food, breakfast items, tea, and coffee. This simple menu is also one of the beauties of this café. The simple vintage interior, calendars, and furniture take you to the 60s era in a blink of an eye. Butlers wearing a traditional white dress with turban serving food in old white ceramic crockery gives a unique experience to young visitors and equally nostalgia for senior citizens who were once a regular visitor.
