“Good place to have a chat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

It is good place where college and university studnts can sit and chat for hours. Though it falls under a glam and cultural spot of Kol, the food is not of good quality and inexpensive too. The place is mostly visited by students of adjacent college n university.

“The Same Old Look Maintained Year After Year,,,,,”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Sir Newton's laws of motion could never bring any change or effect to these restaurants all over India, from ambiance to attitude remain the same (especially in Jadavpur outlet ) since I started visiting that place.The only attraction to visit the joint is its cheap and one can spend hours with only a cup of coffee. The best experience I had in Trivandram (Kerala) coffee house right in front of the railway station ,

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

The hotspot for people to meet be it students, executives, friends, artists, literati, etc. Fairly priced. Coffee was amazing. This place has been popular for years, even during the independence struggle.

“Coffee House Review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

With only 3 days in Calcutta, I couldn't visit the city and not take in the famous coffee house on collage street and to see 'adda' in action..!

To be honest, the place is a bit of a dive but you can feel history in the place, with the high ceilings, the dress of the waiters, students and other folk huddled over their coffee deep in heated debate.. Not outstaning or visually anything special, but there is something about th ecoffee house that is worth a visit nevertheless..
