A lot of locals who have a social coffee or some food together. I really like the dosa here, although the Indian coffee house in Chandigarh was even better.

It was our favourite place for food.Though old in style,food was hygeinic and reasonably priced.It is centrally located .Only drawback is slow service at peak hours in the evening when it is crowded.

Indian coffee hose,Shimla is right on the Mall Road,near the Church.You invariably come across it while there.It offers snacks,food,beverages etc.The place is good but not contemporary.Staff are well-behaved.The place can be managed better with modern stylish look & flavour,but overall you must check it,its right there on Mall.

An old style coffee house, has a ton of character unfortunately the food/coffee is just about ordinary. No harm in popping by but dont expect much

Very good place, clean as well nothing in menu is for more then 50rs. But the only problem is service is a little slow. Will surely recommend if you have time and wants to enjoy good food.

We had visited this place in our childhood and had an impression of being a gr8 place. We ordered their famous dosa and hot cofee. Both were served after repeated reminders and that too cold. But this place is famous among locals.

It's worth a visit to dine at Indian Coffee House whenever you are in Shimla . Simple interiors , delicious food and quick service define the place . Excellent South Indian food .
