The iconic Coffee House in Kolkata’s College Street reopened after over three months, however, with less than half the seating capacity.

With limited items on the menu, the iconic porcelain cups and dishes were also missing.

No customer was allowed entry without masks and at the entrance, a poster has been displayed which says ‘No mask. No entry’.

Before entry, every customer was checked by a waiter, donning the usual white uniform and the headgear, with thermal scanners.

“We have reopened after more than three months. One may find many old items such as the white porcelain cups and dishes and the glasses missing,” reported Hindustan Times quoting  Tapan Kumar Pahari, secretary of the Indian Coffee House.

“We are starting with a limited number of food items and beverages. One may not find the cutlet for now,” the report added.

Even though the restaurant has seating arrangements both on the ground and on the first floor, as of now only 25 tables have been arranged on the ground floor.
