"Historical Coffeehouse"

The Indian Coffee House located near College street is fondly called Coffee House at College street by locals and patrons who frequent the place. The simple space, ceiling fans and plain tables may not be on par with the cool coffee outlets, but the history attached to it surpasses one and all. When you realize big names like Satyajit Ray, Amartya Sen, Rabindranath Tagore and Subhash Chandra Bose used to frequent the cafe, it needs no further publicity. Scholars, poets, creative minds hanged around here for intellectual conversations over endless cups of coffee. Art and literary movements were planned, scripts and songs were edited and written and narrated to enthusiast audiences, who were always there for an artistic treat. The ancient walls and faded color, give you the feel of the bygone era and you almost imagine the scenario way back in 1947. Today, ex and current students, professors from the nearby Presidency College and University of Calcutta, hang around the cafe and their friendly chatter fills up the place. While you are at college street for your books shopping, do drop-in at the Indian Coffee House for a hot cup of coffee.
