Cha Bar

Where: Connaught Place

Oxford Bookstore charms you in even if reading isn’t your thing. Take a book of your choice and walk into the beautiful Cha Bar, right next to it. Done up in shades of white, black and electric blue, with a stellar lighting piece on the ceiling, this café offers more than a 100 variety of teas. They have huge windows from where sufficient sunlight creeps in making it easy for those who are up for reading. A good book from Oxford store can be coupled up with some non-fuss food and Cha, as they call it.

 

Kunzum Travel Café

Where: Hauz Khas Village

Tucked away in the lanes of chaotic Hauz Khas Village, this café serves as a haunt for anyone amidst travels, or simply looking to de-stress. They feature a range of travel and photography books. You can make use of their wi-fi, read, and order a refreshing cuppa.

 

Café Turtle

Where: Khan Market

One of oldest Book cafés in the city, this café provides a comfortable space where reading and dining go hand-in-hand. Making way through a narrow staircase in the bustling marketplace, the well-stocked Full Circle Bookstore gives way to the cozy café placed on the upper levels. With the rooftop and inside seating options, one can browse in the bookstore below with books across all genres, including children’s books and then enjoy reading with a few eatables while soaking in the sun or sitting inside.

 

Little Yodakin

Where: Hauz Khas Village

This little place occupies the same premises as the art café – Tattva. They have some amazing books and also a used book section. They also hold events and workshops every now and then. They serves some lip smacking organic food.

 

May Day Bookstore & Café

Where: Shadipur

While it is called a café, there are basically three parts to it. The front is the bookshop, the space is small but the shelves are loaded with quality literature. The backroom serves as the office of the left-wing publishing house that owns it. Bundles of freshly printed Das Capitals can be easily seen scattered all over the alley that leads to the room. There is a small kitchen too which is supposed to cater to the “café” part but we were told that it only functions when some important event takes places.
