Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

We all love a good burger. Be it a veggie crunchy extravaganza or a meaty and juicy affair, a well laid burger has the capacity to put a smile on anyone's face. Incidentally, burgers are also one of the most sought after comfort foods out there, competing neck to neck with pizzas.

When in Kanpur and looking for a good burger, we know that the options are only a few, which is why we have curated a list of Kanpur's favourites. These local joints are our tried and tested favourites and you can depend on them to provide with some delicious burgers without burning a hole in your pocket.

1. Offline Cafe

Ask anyone who lives in Kanpur what the best cafe is and you're sure to hear the name 'Offline' repeated more than once. This cutesy cafe in Kanpur is all about hanging out and having fun, though the food they serve is pretty awesome-sauce too. Kanpur is especially smitten with the burgers served here, mutton 69, roomali wrapped burger and tex-mex are few of our favourites.

Location: 10/503, Near Lakme Salon, Tilak Nagar, Kanpur

2. Facebook Point

Known as the 'go-to' spot for those who're looking for a good ambience and a solid food, Facebook Point is a legendary cafe in Kanpur. The burger served here falls more in the traditional-Indian style of burgers and apart from the name, there's nothing American in this one. A fried bun nestling green chutney, aloo tikki, onion and a whole lot of flavour, this is exactly what you need when looking for a solid snack.

Location: Lal Quarter, Govind Nagar, Nandlal Chawraha, Kanpur

3. Boxo Burger

A great burger option in Kanpur, Boxo burger is as good as it get when you're looking for a good, yet reasonably priced burger. We have to give Boxo Burgers the upper-hand because of the variety of burgers they serve. We absolutely love their Paneer-e-makhani burger and the tandoori aloo chakri will have you drooling too.

Location: 111A/ 336 ashok nagar Kanpur

4. Cafe Postre

A new place in the city, Cafe Postre is Kanpur's newest hangout favourite. The place is known for its finger food and we especially love the burgers served here. The harabhara burger served here is a crowd favourite and we cannot deny the fact that it is our veggie favourite. You can also get great shakes, fries and other snack options here.

Location: 56/1, Shop 4, Block 6, Govind Nagar, Nandlal Chawraha, Kanpur

5. Model Bakery

Another oldie but a goodie, Model Bakery is an institution in Kanpur and has been one of our favourite places to hangout at. The burgers served here, though will not win any beautiful burger competitions, they are a dose of nostalgia we often need. The burgers here not only remind us of our childhood but are still to the day quite delicious and something we wouldn't want to miss.

Location: 7/117, Swaroop Nagar, Kanpur

With so many options to pick from, what are you waiting for? Get your perfect burger and have a bite of bliss. Have a great experience and thank us later!
