Coffee in the Kolkata adda


The first thing that hits you is the heat, barely held in check by the whirring fans suspended from the deep high ceilinged place, fascinating to look inside this unpretentious coffee house that was once a meeting place of freedom fighters, bohemians and revolutionaries.

Balanced between the old and new, its a hub of cultural conversations,call it an adda if you wish like the Bengali .No doubt this place has witnessed some prominent names as its patrons as is located in the academic centre, this coffee house sees a large number of young college students as well as routine older groups who come here to discuss ideas, latest news or humour in petty gossip. Even though the place is buzzing with voices from the neighbouring table, it provides enough sanity for the backpacker to get into the soul of Kolkata.
