About Preethi Canteen:

Started in 1989 by Mr. Chandrashekar and now run by his son Mr. Prakash, this breakfast joint has been frequented by Who’s who  – from the locals to the travelers to movie-stars to ministers; yet there is an air of humbleness and an ‘being at home’ feel to this place.

The secret of delicious food according to Mr. Prakash  are fresh ingredients and immense passion for cooking – in fact the cooks have remained the same since day one of operations.

Best Khara & Kesari Bhath on NH 206..

Almost everything they serve is delicious, but I definitely recommend to try the following:

–          Benne (Butter) Khali Dosa – INR 25/plate

–          Vada with chutney – INR 12/vada (the sambar wasn’t that great)

–          Khara and Kesari bhath – INR 24 for the combination

Wash these off with at-least 2 cups of filter coffee 🙂

Quick Tip: Birur is located in Chikkamagalur district (known for its coffee plantations) – so most of the places on this highway are expert coffee- brewers, churning out excellent filter coffee: Tea is an alien drink, so stay out of its way 😀
