Indian Coffee House in Kolkata is your time machine


The Indian Coffee House on College Street, Kolkata, has got style.


No need for a time machine.


The ghosts of yesteryear's literary and film heavyweights are known to visit their old hangout.





Tumi kon gaulpo ta sonale?

For the Indian Coffee House in Bangalore, visit MG Road. Also see: 'Coffee minus the smoke' in the discontinued mini-column 'Salt and Pepper' in the Times of India, Bangalore

  1. Sadly, the India Coffee House in Bangalore shifted out of its old place on MG Road - the lease expired and the owner wanted a rent that only an MNC could afford. It's now on Church Street, the road behind MG's, but lacks old-world charm. On a more encouraging note, the India Coffee House in Delhi seems to be getting a facelift. Was there last week, and it's temporarily housed across the road.
