Veena Stores has been fulfilling its promise of serving hot, steamy and fluffy idlis to the people in Bangalore for decades. It’s absolutely a no frills, no-nonsense place where the food does the talking. At given times, the footpath adjacent comes alive, bustling with people balancing stainless steels plates. Most people visit for just a few things: the softest, fluffiest idlis you’ll find served with lovely pale green chutney – and to wash it down, a glass of strong filter coffee. They do not use onion and garlic. If you want a quick breakfast and don’t mind standing in a queue, then drop by this place.

They have an extremely simple menu including the dosas and vadas that proudly display just the right shade of crisp brown.
