Freedman has visited more than thirty of the most significant and beautiful Coffee Houses throughout India. Away from the stereotypes of poverty and exotica they have allowed him to enter an 'ordinary' India. Buried deep within the country's collective memory they have for decades acted simultaneously as political and artistic salons as well as simple eating places.

The Palaces of Memory is a journey into India through the Indian Coffee Houses, a network of worker-owned cafes to be found in cities throughout the sub-continent. They simultaneously speak of a Post-Independence optimism and a now-faded grandeur.
