The view outdoors is good to sit for sip of coffee but the food is average and place seems short-staffed. The dishes lacks authenticity. This place has good seating but not that charming enough to sit for long hours unlike other Indian Coffee House.

I had sweet memory with old owner of the cafe. I visited the shop for the 1st time and he was so humble and energetic at age of 90's. I got attachment with him. He is a great guy. He is like Rajesh Khanna of Anand. Moreover, food and coffee is also good..... :-) :-)

In this coffee House people are spending maximum number of hours while coming in group. Even single can spend any number of hours in this coffee house and enjoy the different type of meals available. Every time, I found the coffee house fully packed & wait for some time to get the seat.

We happened to pass by the Indian Coffee House as we were wandering through Shimla. We'd read about it in the Lonely Planet guide so decided to stop in.

This place has a typical small army town charm with army officers, Army wives etc. Stick to the plain or masala dosas, and the mutton dosa was ok The highlight was the mutton burger. Obviously nothing fancy but delicious. The bun was slightly fried in the pan hence had a crisp to it and the patty too was great. The... More

Amazing scrambled egg with toasts.... Dosas are relishing! I didn't wanna move out without coffee. And it was awesome! It is one of those British-time Indian restaurant so u see all those "social" uncles discussing the world here! Lovely visit.
