favourite Cabin

A poorly illuminated medium sized room with a few white marble-top tables and some wobbly chairs – this is what 'Favorite Cabin' apparently looks like. Located at 69B Surya Sen Street, the lane off College Square, this unassuming cabin is north Kolkata's (Calcutta's) oldest tea stall and is quenching Bengalis' thirst for Tea for over 94 years.

'Favorite Cabin' was founded in the year 1918 by Nutan Chandra Barua and his elder brother Gaur Chandra Barua, who moved to Calcutta from Bailtali village, Chittagong, in Bangladesh.
