Delhi, the capital city, Dilwalon ki Dilli however you call it, something you can’t separate while talking about it is the delicious food. Right? But do we explore it well? Its not just you and me but every single being working in this urban jungle gets so caught up in their everyday fast paced lifestyle that they forget to take some time off for their own selves or to spend it with those they love and if there is anything that can aid your being, it’s some taste buds savouring food.

To add on, you can read a book in solitude or catch up with long lost friends or just spend a lovely evening with the one you love?

So, here is a list of places that are sure to make you smile via the path of your taste buds:

AMA Cafe, Majnu ka Tila

Nestled in the Tibetian colony of North Delhi is this cozy cafe. You dont have to burn a hole in your pocket with its wholesome breakfast or some brunch time meals.

The cafe opens at 7AM and throughout the day you will find locals or college students hanging out or some peace loving souls indulging in time of solace.

PS. Desserts are worth binging on.

The Red Kettle, Sainik Farms

A little not-so-known cafe is apt to energise your lazy and cranky mornings where you demand some alone time. The interiors are colourful, matching the furniture and the menu is nominally priced. It also offers co- working space.

‘Angrezi Chai’ and ‘Hot Chocolate’ are heavenly!

Caara cafe, Janpath

Housed in the British Council building of Connaught Place, the cafe believes in serving hearty yet healthy meals with the freshest produce sourced from their farms. The menu consists of european and british cuisines. They cater with conscience and has a sunny courtyard to offer. \

Soon they will be starting with office delivery services!

Cafe Lota

If you like having Artsy vibes around you, then this is your place to brunch. Located in craft’s museum of Delhi, this cafe is one-feel-good place. You may find silver haired donnees of art or even design school students here, sketching to their hearts content or just discussing art. Food menu offers contemporary versions of regional indian dishes paired with a wide variety of grains for you to experiment with, keeping its back to the roots vibe intact.

A highly preferred place when you plan to catch up with your long lost buddies on a laid back afternoon and just talk life!

Paalak Chat is a must try!

Rasmalai Parfait with raspberry ice-cream and a berry reduction(naam sunke fut gayi). The rasmalai is absolutely stunning.Spongy,aesthetic and not overly sweet. The raspberry icecream is light,citrusy and really goes well with the granola.The berry reduction is decent. But why the hell are they intermixed is something I didn’t understand. Beautiful components individually but don’t gel as a team(English soccer fans would relate). This came in as the final course during my meal here. I’d still call this a good dessert,but do remember don’t mix.
