"It was an honour to enjoy your famous food, coffee and warm welcome, I will take this wonderful experience with me back to Seattle,” read Siegl's note, that Vidyarthi Bhavan shared on Instagram.
Siegl, who now works as a start-up consultant, was in Bengaluru to attend the Global Investors Meet 2022. He co-founded the international coffee chain in 1971 and served as Vice President and director until 1980, when he left the company.
The iconic restaurant said that they were "happy and proud" to have hosted Siegl.
This isn't the first time that the iconic restaurant has hosted a special guest. Famous for its "masala dosae" (South Indian snack), the restaurant is a hotspot for political leaders, literary icons, students, and working professionals.
Recently, after Rishi Sunak took charge as the Prime Minister of the UK, the restaurant shared a picture of Sunak from his visit in 2019. According to the managing partner of the restaurant Arun Adiga, Sunak's wife Akshata Murthy and her parents, Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy and Sudha Murthy were regulars at the restaurant, the Indian Express reported.
Vidyarthi Bhavan, which was started in 1943-44 as a canteen for students, has become a beloved landmark in Bengaluru for local food.
