The idea of ​​setting up a cafeteria along the National Highway near Poojappura Central Jail was prompted by the idea that the general public should have a place to sit and eat while taking food from the food sales counters of the jail department. Launched on January 19, 2016, the cafeteria unit is fully air-conditioned and can seat up to 24 people at a time. There is also a take-away counter for shopping. Built at a cost of Rs 30 lakhs, the unit is equipped with car parking and mobile recharging facilities. The unit also has an open hut model that can seat up to 24 people. Adjacent to this there is a juice parlor and an open kitchen. The products are being offered to the public at affordable rates while providing similar facilities as of the top hotels. The cafeteria is open from 6.30 am to 9 pm. A similar cafeteria operates in Open Prison & Correctional Home, Cheemeni.
