Brahmin’s Coffee Bar Shankarpuram Bangalore

One of the benefits of waking up early on a saturday morning on the excuse of jogging is meeting friends at one of the oldest and yummiest South Indian breakfast places in Bangalore – Brahmin’s Coffee Bar.

About Brahmin’s Coffee Bar:

Located in the south-central part of Bangalore or Bengaluru in Shankarpuram, Brahmin’s Coffee Bar was started in 1965 by late Sri K V. Nageshwar Adiga alias Nagesh Rao and offers only 5 items:

Idly, Vada, Khara Bath, Kesari bath, KaapiΒ  and Tea ; NO SAMBAR – only chutney.

Currently it is run by Mr.Radhakrishna Adiga; It is said that he would remember one’s regular order just by looking the customer’s face; Although now, one has to buy a token and collect the food from another counter owing to the heavy crowd and some miserable souls who never used to pay.
