Serving as a hub for great coffee and better conversations since 1942 when it was first built, United Coffee House has a legacy that continues to burn bright. The charm in the vintage colonial decor remains untarnished regardless of how many years pass by, and the hoard of loyalists never stop swearing by this iconic coffee house.

With melodious Bollywood instrumentals playing in the background, and an assortment of classic vintage dishes on offer, this restaurant defines the category of oldie but goldie!

Kwality chain of restaurants is synonymous with childhood dinner outings for a lot of us, and that hasn't changed much despite it now being 2020. This iconic chain was amongst the first to bridge the gap between affordable meals and upscale dining, and also to bring fancy international dishes to our local tables.

This much-adored bakery has consistently maintained its quality and taste, and for that, we are ever grateful. This continues to be our go-to place for some budget-friendly, flavoursome waffles, and regardless of how many new joints open up, very few can match up to the legend that is Wenger's CP.

Still delivering in accordance with the standards that were set in 1978, Jain Chawal Wale satisfies you with both its food quantity as well as quality. Their service is lightning fast, and their meals are remarkably easy on the pocket, especially when you factor in the mouth-watering taste. Best part? This is one of the very few late-night joints in CP that will take care of your post 2 AM munchies.
