Mool Raj Tea Stall Raghu Nath Bazaar Jammu..This was "India Coffee House of Jammu". You could meet a poet ,a painter,a musician, a college professor and a writer at this shop in good olden days. I am informed by the  Proprietor that the shop was opened before partition of the country .
 While in Jammu, late Prof Saproo ( Political science ) ,the then Principal Govt Degree College Bhaderwah , would also frequent this shop to discuss Nietzsche, Kafka and Sartre over a simple cup of tea . This was early seventies of he last century .The butter toasts prepared on burning charcoal is still a speciality at this shop .Yes the visiting crowd has changed at this shop.The intellectual class no longer visits this place. Driven by commercial constraints ,the owners have sold half of the old spacious shop.The grand old" Mool Raj Tea Stall" has shrunk to the remaining half space.

Apart from tea, lemon tea ,cold drinks and butter toasts, you can also relish Omelette on bread pieces , Vegetable patties and his special Chutney prepared in curd .The rates continue to remain competitive and quite reasonable.
