We love Delhi this time of the year. To soak in this good weather in all it’s glory, we’re suggesting some nice hideouts where you can tuck into comfort food, wrap your hands around a sweet cuppa and make the most of this season.
#LBBPicks: 10 Delhi Cafes That Are Perfect For Winter Chilling
Triveni Terrace Cafe
The fact that it’s centrally located makes it a promising bet. Whether you’re hankering after calorie bigwigs like pakoras and aloo tikki, or looking at keeping it healthy with upma and green tea, there’s lots to feast your eyes (and taste buds) on.
If you have more time to kill, you can check if there’s an exhibition happening at the centre, and then pretend to make sense of the artwork over filter coffee.

The big, French windows and a ladder full of potted plants add a touch of whimsy to this place that does great Kerala fare. So, here’s an offer you can’t refuse: Sukha Mutton Fry and Masala Chai Toddy (alcohol FTW!).
Recommended For: Eat It With Your Hands Kerala Grilled Chicken, Mustard Fries and Sangria.
Music And Mountains
A bit of a cultural misfit in GK, at this cafe you can even pretend to be in the hills. The cosy ambience, complete with log tables and a chimney will make you want to make this your retirement house.

Ivy & Bean
A bookshelf, green cover and a coffee machine… What else can one ask for when the weather is playing nice?
