Town Canteen Chikmagalur

Chikmagalur is known for mountains, coffee, wildlife, rallying and Malnad cuisine such as ‘neer dosas’, ‘kai kadubu’, ‘akki rotti’ , ‘chicken curry’, ‘biryani’ ย etc; relatively less know is this small-place churning out delicious benne masala dosas and jamoons.

Town Canteen, located in the heart of Chikmagalur town has been serving South-Indian breakfast delights since the 1960s.

Back in the 1960s they used to cook the food elsewhere and serve them underneath a tree, as their business grew โ€“ they shifted to the current place on Rathnagiri road (close to SH57 Vijayapura)

Benne (Butter) Masala Dosa:

Crispy and laden with butter, this is on-par with some of the best masala dosas I have tasted till date (so close to the CTR masala dosas in Bangalore) and the chutney just elevates the dosa experience.
