We discovered this place as we had popped into the Himachal Emporium. I thought it looked quaint and decided to go on. The interior layout is a tad crazy. Dark and cramped interiors, filthy stairwell going down (the coffee shop is in three levels), an indifferent menu and bad food, no idea what this is all about? I'll give them... More

Indian Coffee House has kept up its taste since years. It has the best south Indian food in Shimla. Be it Masala Dosa or Idli-Sambar, vada-sambar or Uttapam, the taste is incomparable.

This place has good coffee and lot of waiting. However personally I feel nothing is outstanding and it has been just hyped for no reason.

Tried this place out for coffe. Great atmosphere and waiters dressed up to the nines who were helpful and friendly. The coffee was ok and to my taste a bit weak. This was more than made up for by the great atmosphere and people talking with us. Worth a visit but maybe ask for stronger coffee if that's your bag.... More

One of the well known landmarks in Shimla, is the Indian Cofee House .... but it is hyped more than the actual picture. This is place serves good cofee... but is needed to be maintained a little better
