Coffee House, the favourite hangout for the city’s young and intellectual, is set to join Kolkata’s restaurants by resuming services with restrictions from July 2, provided the decks are cleared at a meeting the previous day. But the iconic College Street place for adda, famous for its foul cutlet and black coffee (infusion), might miss the buzz with just half of the seats being allowed to be occupied. Patrons must wear masks, sanitize their hands and stay at least six feet from the next table.
According to Coffee Workers’ Cooperative Society, which runs Coffee House, Kolkata Police has agreed to issue an NOC to reopen its College Street unit from Thursday. But it will be preceded by a meeting of the society on July 1 when the date will be finalized. “We had a talk at local police station. A senior officer agreed to issue an NOC by July 1,” a society source said.
