:: Indian Coffee House ::

Indian Coffee House
You get to see this SCENE in every single Indian Coffee House Restaurants in the Country. Im proud that i had an access to ICH's across 4 cities and towns so far, Puducherry, Neyveli, Chennai and Bangalore. We just have to accept the fact that the Tradition and Taste of ICH and food remains the same, even after 7 decades.

Here is a bit information on ICH.
The India Coffee Houses were started by the Coffee Board in early 1940s, during British rule. In the mid 1950s the Board closed down the Coffee Houses, due to a policy change. The thrown-out workers then took over the branches, under the leadership of the communist leader A. K. Gopalan and renamed the network as Indian Coffee House. The Indian Coffee Workers Co-Operative Society Federation was founded in 1958 in Thrissur, to manage the Coffee Houses. Gradually, the Indian Coffee House chain expanded across Kerala, Bengal and Delhi.

The above picture was shot at ICH, MG Road, Bangalore.
Whenever time permits... please visit.. :)
