The Brahmins’ Coffee Bar holds its head high with its traditional idlis and vadas in a world, where the likes of Pizzas, Burgers, and Chinese food grab eyeballs. What started as a humble venture in a small room in a bylane of Shankarapuram in South Bangalore, slowly built a reputation for itself which resulted in a loyal clientele that has only grown over the decades.

The Brahmins’ Coffee Bar is a place where many head to in the mornings with devotion, as if on a morning visit to a temple. And temple it is for many, the temple of food. The Brahmins’ Coffee Bar was born in 1965, the brainchild of Late Shri K.V.Nagesh Rao. Initially, it opened in a small room and served coffee, tea, and a sprinkling of bakery items. Six years down the line, it added a few popular south Indian breakfast items like Idli, etc., to its repertoire, and the rest is history.

The restaurant has shifted to a bigger space adjacent to the original room where it had started operations. It is a self-service outlet, with customers overflowing onto the road. What is it that has been drawing hordes of gourmets regularly to this spartan and no-frills restaurant that serves a limited range of dishes? There are many reasons, and one of them, surprisingly is the chutney and the coffee!

This eatery has come a long way since its inception in 1965, but what remains unchanged is the quality and simplicity of its menu. The limited range of items helps them to focus on enhanced quality.

Brahmin’s Coffee Bar Menu

  • Idli
  • Vada
  • Khara Bath
  • Kesari Bath
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Plain Milk

The simple menu has Idly, Vade, Khara Bath, and Kesari  Bath, with hot beverages of Coffee, Tea, and plain milk. This simple menu, however, succeeds in firing the imagination of thousands, who throng the restaurant during its opening hour to savour its fare.

The most popular of the dishes is a plate of idly and vada, but many are drawn by the enticing taste of the chutney, while others are hypnotised by the aroma of its coffee. Whatever be the reason, there are crowds swarming around like bees outside the restaurant, waiting for it to open.
