Nostalgia, mind boggling crispy dosas, hot filter coffee, vade, pooris in the morning, rava vade in the evening...these are just some of the reasons to head to Vidyarthi Bhavan. But then if you are a Bangalorean do you really need a reason????? :)

The dosas here are heavenly and should be eaten hot. An excellent crisp dosas with either the Sabu or potato palya, both leave lingering taste. And makes us plan a return.
