As Usual the oldest place in the vicinity is loosing out despite its vintage charm! Needs to catch up on service, though it's ambience is reminiscent of the good old cosy times with steaming coffee and friends to make the evening warmer!

Worst ICH outlet i have ever tried. Mostly filled up by aged locals who would order Butter Toast and Tea and sit for long hours chatting or finishing up with some work. Its hot and suffocating inside. Preparation is Bad and is not up to the ICH standard and the prices they charge. Not recommended at all.

Having a coffee in a warm cozy ambiance surrounded with retirees and oldies is a classic way here, dosa is also good. You will walk out with a smile always.

While there are number of eating joints and restaurants on the Mall Road at Shimla, Indian Coffee House still remains popular, especially for the locals there who want to catchup with friends over a cup of espresso or some South Indian snacks!
