There's a teeny tiny place for coffee and a few fried snacks opposite the Coonoor Market. Thamizhagam Coffee is a recent discovery. A limited menu and place for just ten people to be seated and it's extremely popular. That's the menu and first on the list is filter coffee for eighteen rupees.
With a hot tumbler of filter coffee one can't resist a bonda or a vada. They compliment each other perfectly. A little square of newspaper is set down along with the snack you order to wipe off the excess oil if you're finicky about such things.
