Geetha Cafe T Nagar
Geetha Cafe, has been a staunch landmark at the heart of Pondy Bazaar for the last 63 years. For many shoppers, a trip to Pondy Bazaar is not complete without a dosa and a cup of coffee from this family run establishment. The cafe has maintained its quality of serving authentic, pure vegetarian south indian fare year after year endearing it to the locals. The ground floor cafe, opens out onto the street and is almost like a fast food joint, noisy and vibrant. There are chat and ice cream counters which operate in the evenings. The recently renovated Veekay restaurant on the first floor, offers a quiet air conditioned space which serves delicious north Indian fare in addition to the south Indian menu.
Geetha Cafe is something of a legacy, a memory of Madras… any old Chennaite will be able to fondly recall the tasty sambar vada or the mouth watering onion rava dosa. Remarkably the taste of the food remains the same today, the recipes and methods of preparation being passed from father to sons. It is worth making a trip to this cafe, to remember Madras, to eat some tasty food, get recharged by good strong coffee and to even have a chat with the smiling proprietors who are full of stories.
