Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Students all around the world always face one common problem- that of finding good food, more importantly, good food in a budget. Students in Kanpur are no different and though the city is not at a lack of options when it comes to eating, there's really nothing that tastes amazing and fits the budget too.

But wait! At least that's what you thought. Cockpit Cafe in Kanpur is a place that's recently cropped up and it's winning our taste buds. Light on the pocket, rich on the palate, it's the perfect stop for students looking for a quick pick me up meal.

What's the vibe?

A neat little place, nestled within the lanes of Mall Road, its a cafe that's a hit with the students for all the right reasons. Sure it's pocket friendly, but apart from that, the vibes here are inviting as well as enticing. Adorned with curios from here and there, you get a feel of a high end cafe as soon as you walk in.

With ample spaces for you and your friends complemented by subtle ambient music, your conversations will go on uninterrupted. The best part is that their playlist is absolutely fire, which is something that adds to the appeal of the place.

For the tastebuds

The real reason you're here is the food and this is a place that's surely going to win over your taste buds in no time. In fact, just a single visit here doesn't even do it justice. With loads of continental and Italian cuisine to pick from, you'll reach a problem of plenty.

What the students (and we) love about the place is their thin crust classic pizzas topped with loads of cheese, a few mushrooms and with a tangy, zesty sauce at the bottom, the pizza really stays true to the classic Italian style. You can even go all out and gorge out on a meat lovers pizza which has got loads of non veg toppings and of course- cheese.

If, for some unholy reason, you're not feeling like pizza, go ahead and try the white sauce pasta, which is in a league of it's own. One bite out of it and you'll marvel at how a place so good can be so budget friendly.

For quick, on the go bites, we'd suggest that you go for a sandwich or a burger, both of which are loaded to the sides and make you drool just by looking at them.

Knock Knock

Well, folks, there's no time to waste! Cockpit Cafe is sure to become your next hangout spot and since it's so budget friendly, you're going to gorge your heart out on these.
