Bhadra Coffee Shop – Balehonnur

I have never been a coffee fan, not that I disliked it; never did I have those mid-night coffee cravings. Little did I know that after a visit to Bhadra Coffee Shop in Balehonnur would change my outlook about coffee.

About Bhadra Coffee Stop:

Located in the midst of a coffee plantation, this brew is as fresh as it can get. Imagine you walk into this shop in the morning and the guy says ‘ Please wait for 10 mins Sir, my boy has gone to fetch the coffee beans for roasting ‘ –Β  followed by the aroma of roasting the coffee beans and grinding them to prepare the first brew of the day to satiate the highway travelers πŸ™‚

The Road to Bhadra Coffee Shop:

Bhadra Coffee Shop is about 300kms away from the CCD infested Bangalore on the Sringeri-Chikmaglur State Highway in Karnataka – the Coffee Capitol of India.

Blessed with lush green, serene roads and an awesome weather, a ride to his place is a motorcyclist’s delight covering an array of roads which allow those 150 kmph blasts to puttering around at 40 kmph around the coffee plantations to the knee-scraping corners.

Although their most-popular brew is the Pure Coffee aka no chicory (Read – 100% Caffeine Pleasure πŸ˜› ), it is their Cold Coffee which made my day πŸ™‚

  1. Is the bhadra coffee shop on the route between Bangalore to Chikmagalur? I was travelling this weekend from Bangalore to Chikmagalur. I wanted to know where this place is exactly located. Also how far is this place from Chikmagalur?



  2. I am visiting Sringeri from Bangalore on 26th Jan. My route will touch Bhadra Stop Coffee Shop, which according to Google map, is about 35 km prior to Sringeri. If anyone has mobile number of Bhadra Coffee Shop, please share with me. Thanks in advance. I love Malnad. TS Gopalkrishnan 9972040189
