“The Good Old Coffee House”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Situated right in the middle of the educational hub of Kolkata, off College Street is the good old Coffee House. On my last visit there, I noticed that it still retains many of it's old world charm. Although the menu has changed, it is still popular for it's good old coffee which comes in 4 variants - coffee, cold coffee, cold coffee with cream and illusion(black coffee). With institutes like Calcutta University, Presideny College, Medical College surrounding it, it is no wonder that this is a very popular hub for adda, which we, Bengalis just love to do.

“Have Coffee and discus the world”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

You can get into any conversation which already would be on anyways and you can extend it over 4-5 cup of coffee...no one will rush you out unless you want to....Bengalis love discussion and if you trick them into some topic close to their heart...you have it.

“"Coffee House ere sai adda ta aaj are nai......."”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Its not CCD nor is it Barista its got a charm of its own. Many great authors and musicians of Kolkata have spent time in Coffee House scribbling down plots or playing new tunes. Located at the education Hub of Kolkata as I would like to call it for its proximity to Calcutta University, IISWBM, City Colloge and so many other institutions is a must see. Cold coffee with some snacks....... and the ambience..."Fata Fati"
