In the freezing cold, in the crowded mall road, among the expensive coffee shops, the Indian coffee house provided the best filter coffee with some south indian dishes. the seating arrangements are of old tradition and view from window seat with a hot coffee - a feel good moment.

the place has a historical twist to it, with 3 floors, some very old furniture. Service is terribly slow, took 20 min to get 2 cups of tea. Restroom is filthy, no soap. Place could have so much better with limited menu options, with some historical anecdotes on the wall.

This is the same India Coffee House which is decades old if not more than a century old !!! The decor and staff almost look like from an era earlier, is a relic, but the best south indian food in Shimla is served here. Not ideal if you care about hygiene though or ambience.
