Whatever the food, a hot cup of steaming filter coffee is a must-have. The south-Indian snacks especially the Masala Dosa and the Sambhar Idli are delicious in Shimla's cool climate. A unique innovation of the place is its Mutton Dosa with a mix of minced mutton and onion masala stuffing, which tastes good with or without a serving of sambhar.
The Indian Coffee House is an ideal place for a good chat over coffee, or to just hang out after a stroll around the Mall, Shimla. It's a great stop for light evening snacks too. A mildly spicy vegetable cutlet or a mutton cutlet can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or chai or maybe just a simple French toast with an omelet or crunchy fried finger chips.
