Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Now that the winters are here in Indore, we've all got something to look forward to. With the winters, there comes a sort of a freedom that's hard to find in the summers, mainly because of the harsh sun. Now that you're free to do whatever you want, here's what we would suggest.

On a cold, winter day, all that can soothe the soul is a warm cup of a hot beverage. In Indore, there are many places that let you do so, but one place that sticks out is Koffee King. These guys know how to give you a good pick-me-up during the winters and we're all for it.

What's the vibe?

Koffee King is a simple place that likes to keep it clean and speaks volumes through its beverages and quick bite options. The place in itself has a toned down vibe and gives you a break from the usually loud bistros and cafes, which indeed have a charm of their own.

When you're here, you just want to relax, take in the simplicity of life and enjoy the smaller things that make our lives so special- like a hot chocolate or a coffee.

What's on the menu?

To put it quite simply, a number of options that are tasty enough to make you keep coming back for more. Their smoky grilled sandwiches, cheesy pizzas and light pastas are often perfect for a mid day meal. Pair that with their amazing and heartwarming coffees, hot cocoas and teas, and you've got a place where you can spend your winters just reading a book.

We would suggest that you go for either the classic latte coffee, which has just the perfect blend of cocoa beans, milk and froth on top. If you're feeling especially filmy, go for the creamy hot chocolate, which is basically heaven in a mug.

If you're in the mood for something a but more heavy, the Italian fare here should do the trick. With the winter sun out, and the rays beating in on the open, airy cafe, the vibes just seem to take things up another notch. Needless to say, we were completely floored when we visited the place for the first few times.

Knock Knock

If there's one thing to love about the winters, it is the fact that we can binge on some of our favourite dishes. Hot chocolate tends to top the chart when it comes to that and Koffee King is one place that isn't messing around. So folks, the next time you're feeling down and out, you know where to go.
