Not more than a decade ago the idea for day-out in Delhi usually included a short trip to the most famous architectural wonders of the city, chai from the nearest Tapri and Chaat-Papdi-Gossip sessions from the famous vendor in the area. It's 2020 now and things aren't as simple as they used to be. The only people who take some time out for sight-seeing are the tourists visiting the city for the first time and Chai-Pe-Charcha is just an impromptu conference between work friends. Although the gossip sesh over mouth-watering food still has the same format.



But if you look at the upside... D-town is currently brimming with tens & thousands of options to spend time at. They have upgraded their game by making heart-warming food everybody loves. And they've also re-created the ambience and the vibe in order to make our culinary experience the best one. However, if you've missed out on any of the best ones in Delhi, need not worry because I have with me a list of 22 Insta-worthy cafes perfect for all occasions.

Rose Cafe resembles a fairy-land tea party I used to dream of attending when I was a mere kid of 10. The combination of turquoise, pink and white makes its decor just perfect for an attractive Instagram feed. The heaps of food options and a multi-cuisine menu makes the place a living wonderland. Additionally, this cafe also offers a handful of vegan varieties if that's what you wish to have today.

Overlooking the famous Hauz Khas Lake, Mia Bella is the most romantic and gram-worthy cafes in Delhi. Now, I've been to this cafe once but I still cannot get over how beautiful it is. The food, the lighting, the tables, the music... everything is in perfect sync with the vibe of the place. However, if you're only there for the food, their Artichoke Pizza and Chicken Stroganoff is to die for.

With a calm atmosphere on the terrace and a yummy brunch menu, this place is perfect for lazy winter afternoons. This lesser-known cafe is located in the heart of Delhi which in my opinion has the simplistic charm that attracts a lot of people to explore their amazing and innovative food menu which includes beetroot ka halva. There’s no loud music, no harsh light which makes this cafe an ideal place for creating ideas.

This place has done its best to retain its charm in the many years since it opened in Hauz Khas. From maintaining the entrance through narrow stairs to offering flavours you'd never forget to providing comfy lounge sofas and old-wall wall clocks... Elma's Bakery has outdone itself when it comes to feed-worthy decor and drool-worthy dishes. It reminds me of some small-old-English place tucked away in London. But the best part; it serves one of the best breakfasts in the city.
