Some of the most adored snacks here include the Cheese Burger (₹50) and Momos (₹120). However, winning hearts and ruling over our taste buds, forever now, is Exer Club's Mushroom Sandwich (₹50)! The heartily-filled cheese and mushroom in the sandwich is as fulfilling and delectable as it gets!

Economical and convenient, the shop also has every day things one would need. From spices to dairy, it has options galore for your homes.
In a candid conversation R P Bahadur, owner of Exer Club said, "We started a small venture some 40 years back. By God's grace, we have continued this unbranded shop and now have opened another cafe, too," he shared.
Now, we're in 2023 but the popularity that Exer Club enjoyed in its initial days, still remains, and the taste and quality of the food here, has only improved! If you're a fan of affordable, delicious nibbles and green-covers, this place is for you!
