Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Summers are harsh, especially when you’re living in a city as polluted as Kanpur. The constant sun and the heat can be extremely challenging but cold beverages are the only things that keep us sane in all that. Who can say no to a thick, iced, sweet shake that immediately cools you down and provides much needed relief from all the sun and the heat. Here’s a list of the top places in Kanpur for a refreshing and indulgent shake.


Juice Box is the first thing that comes to our minds when we hear the word shakes. Though known for its fresh pressed juices and healthy smoothies, Juice Box also does some amazing shakes. We would recommend trying their old school cold coffee, custard apple shake, choco frappe and the exotic rose petal shake. You can also try the healthy smoothies here, they too are pretty good.


Known for their amazing food, the exceptional interiors and the great vibe, Mocha is a familiar name in Kanpur. And it is no surprise they also serve some of the most amazing shakes you can find in town. Albeit on the expensive side of the spectrum, the shakes are so good they will blow your mind. We recommend their strawberry cheesecake shake, yes it is a strawberry cake that you can slurp on, the toblerone shake and rocky road. You can also try their signature freak shakes to indulge your sweet tooth.

Busy Beans

Busy Beans in another classic when it comes to shakes. The joint is exceptionally reasonable for the kind of shakes they serve. The perfectly blended shakes are the best way to chill out. We recommend trying the caramel popcorn shake, the death by chocolate shake and the refreshing blueberry shake. They also give you an option to add scoops of protein to make your shakes healthier.

Offline Cafe

Offline Cafe is the hip hangout spot of the town which is known for their cozy interiors and the authentic yet experimental menu. The shakes at offline Cafe are as OTT (over the top) as everything on the menu. We love their Oreogasm- the name already had us sold but it is the best oreo shake ever, the Nutella and the Berry Blast. You can also try their monster shakes for that added omph, if not for your sake then for the sake of your Instagram.

Frozen Junction

Frozen Junction is a known ice cream place, they have taken the city by a storm with their rolled ice creams and frozen waffles. We recommend trying the oreo mint, peanut butter, oreo blueberry, bubblegum, coconut, choco-nigga, red velvet and brownie shake here. They also have a special protein shake for all you fitness shakes out there who want to indulge there taste buds without compromising on the diet.

So there you have it,these our the top picks for shakes in the city. Grab a shake- let your hair down and do not forget to share you experience in the comments section below.
