Brahmin's cafe serves hot idlis and vadas, khara bath or upma, kesari bath, coffee and tea. The cafe is open from 7.am to 12 noon and from 3.00 pm to 7.00 pm. The ambience is olde worlde where you queue up, pay and receive your food all in a span of four or five minutes on a day when it is very crowded! The idlis come fast and hot in a pool of delectable green chutney. Additional green chutney servings may be had from an old man who sits patiently at a wooden table - totally olde worlde! The khara bath is very tasty but high on ghee as is the kesari bath. Coffee is served in glass tumblers that must be at least fifty years old and is a perfect round off to an excellent meal! Non-coffee drinkers can take a shot at piping hot badam(almond)milk!
Though it is a coffee bar, there is nothing leisurely about Brahmin's Cafe and there is nothing quiet about it either. There are no chairs to sit on. A few tables just outside the cafe provide space for big groups to park their plates. This is fast food at its fastest! There is also no change in the menu and some could find it monotonous.
Having said that, it may be noted that there are very very few people who have negative things to say about this institution. The food remains delectable and tasty, day after day and year after year, it is served in surroundings that are clean by people who are fast and efficient!
To many, Brahmin's Cafe symbolizes a certain ethos and culture!
