CCD was the first place where the waiter wouldn't bring the bill tucked into a plate of Saunf to you, basically signaling you to vacate the table.— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) July 31, 2019
This was a pleasant surprise to many, and hence so many love stories, start-ups, job interviews took place here. #CCD
Words can't explain
So many fond memories associated with #CCD. My first proper date with the then fiance, at their Upper Lake outlet in Bhopal. A day spent chatting and sipping coffee with my two BFs, after bunking class at college.
RIP #Siddhartha . Thank you for these memories.

Cafe Coffee Day Founder VG Siddhartha Dead, Body Found in Netravati River
Indeed, a lot can surely happen over coffee. We hope the CCD entrepreneur rests in peace. In the letter, Siddhartha had said he had assets of over Rs 18,290 crore, which should help pay off his debts. Siddhartha was spotted last on Monday evening at the Netravati Bridge where he had gone for a stroll.
