Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday could not resist the aroma of his favourite mall road coffee and made an unscheduled halt to sip the beverage at his Shmilaâ€™sÂ inconic coffee house.
Modi, who was in the town to attend Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakurâ€™s oath taking ceremony made a surprise stop outside a coffee house.
Modi stopped his car and went straight to the crowd assembled outside the coffee house to take a glimpse of the Prime Minister.
The coffee house where Modi stopped was one of his favourite hangout places during his eight years tenure as BJP affairs incharge of Himachal Pradesh.
"In Shimla, relished coffee at the Indian Coffee House and reminisced old days. The coffee tastes as good as it did two decades ago, when I would frequent Himachal for party work,"Â PM Modi tweeted.Â

PM Modi, at his April 27 rally in Shimla during the recent assembly elections, had also made a special reference to the coffee house.
He even named few journalists who would join him at the coffee house.
Governor Acharya Devvrat had hosted a lunch for the prime minister and other dignitaries. However, Modi did not stay back for lunch and left after having his favourite coffee.
Having tea or coffee at roadside stalls has lately become a leading trend for politicians and PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi have been doing this for some time now.
Recently, during his election campaign in Gujarat, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was also seen having tea and bred pakoras at a roadside tea stall in Surat.
