Visited this place after 13 years and it seems nothing has changed. Even the food quality has not changed. Their coffee , french toast , cheese omelette everything is excellent. Don't go by the looks or the erratic service. Just go for food and history.

You must experience the Indian Coffee House if you are visiting Shimla. It feels like you have stepped back into time, and that nothing has changed here for a century. The coffee is pretty good, but the food is average.

The Indian Coffee House specialises in Indian coffee (strangely enough) and south Indian cuisine. All the waiting staff are dressed in traditional outfits. A bit spit and sawdust with a very masculine clientèle but good quality food and drink at reasonable prices.

True to its reviews, this is old world charm re-visited. I took my parents along and they got nostalgic remembering the India Coffee house in CP, Delhi. Dirt cheap prices. Coffee, South Indian food and bread toast are amazing. We also ordered vegetable pakodas and those were like mashed vegetables fried in the form of puris :-) Overall nice experience.... More

Just love it because of its values. Attached because of old memories . Coffee has the same old taste, unbeatable . Prices are low , unbeatable. And food fresh as always. Don't miss if you value traditions and the originality.

the moment you enter in this restaurant , it feels you have entered a time machine, takes you 50 years back. Faded posters, old furniture, worn out cutlery, server's dresses, everything reminds you good old days. Though food is average but then how may old coffee house have you seen lately.

It retains the trade mark iNDIAN COFFEE HOUSE LOOKS. Very dark and dull but the quaint atmosphere of all the coffee houses of India.I think they patent the decor. It lends to the air, with old posters of actress Ragini sipping coffee and many wall posters. The waitors have the real old time uniforms looks like you are inside the... More
