There is nukkad wali chai and then there are cafes, and if you put the best of the two together you get the very quaint Nukkad Cafe in Lucknow. As the name suggests, Nukkad Cafe serves hot steaming chai all the year round and fresh snacks on the go, but what many people do not know is that they also serve really good cold coffee & shakes.
Fuss-free but high quality
This is a fuss-free space, so don’t expect any frills. You won’t get any selfie spots or wi-fi here, and no seating either. What you will get is prompt service, tasty food, chai, coffee & other beverages, made using good quality products. For instance, their coffee is made using Davidoff coffee powder and Amul ice cream, lending it a creamy deliciousness that you won’t find in most other cafes.
Must try: Hazelnut Cold Coffee and Classic Cold Coffee.
You will find Nukkad Cafe teeming with morning walkers in the early hours and with people looking for a satiating meal at lunch break. Be it their freshly brewed tea/coffee, rabdi wali Lassi, toasted Bun Butter and Pakodas, or the more filling Sandwiches, Maggi, Pav Bhaji – everything is prepared maintaining a high level of hygiene.
Most popular on their menu is: Pav Bhaji & Maggi. But we do recommend you to also try their sandwiches and burger, which are just as delicious!
Whether you want to grab a bite on the go, or want to enjoy good conversation over a cuppa chai, this is the place to check out!
