Where To Go In Delhi & Gurgaon When You Really Need That Coffee

Aditi posted on 15 February

Never mind how frequently {or not} you drink it, and how passionately {or not} you feel about the right way to make a cup, coffee is comfortably wedged in our vocabularies and lives. Some times it’s the goodness of the bean that we’re after, and some times just a moment’s peace to breathe in that deliciously comforting aroma of freshly-ground beans.

We’re not going to question what your coffee intentions are, young man/lady. But we’ll make sure you know where to get your next cup with these cafes in Gurgaon.

Di Ghent Café

Let’s get this straight; Belgium has the best waffles, the best chocolate AND the best coffee? Well, it certainly appears so after our nth visit to this cozy café, named after the third largest city in that rather lucky country. The pleasant team behind Di Ghent Cafe has gone to great lengths to ensure that the finest coffee beans are perfectly roasted, and always perfectly served.

Another Fine Day

A café and a reading room, this is the perfect place for a solitary cup of coffee with your favourite book, or you could borrow one of theirs {if you promise to give it back}. Illy coffee is blended with a South Indian bean, with a hint of spice, and makes for a really great cup.

Bizibean

If we forgive funky spellings, it’s only because of the coffee; we approve! The casual experience of walking by Bizibean’s open counter might not betray the depth of their coffee knowledge and passion.

We’ve tried the French Press option of their international blends, all diligently researched and sourced, as well as the single origin estate beans from Mysore and Malabar, although we have it on good authority that their iced coffee options win hands down.

Café Lota

It seems only right that the café run by the National Crafts Museum serves up an artisanal cup of coffee. The single-estate origins lie in either Chikmagalur or Coorg, and while they carry notes from down South, we’re thrilled that this café still feels like old-school Delhi.

Diggin

Although more of a full-service restaurant, Diggin has provided shelter from the storm to hordes of people seeking nothing more than a coffee break. The Diggin Coffee, an espresso topped with gelato, chocolate chips and chocolate sauce, has saved us many a time.

Kunzum Travel Cafe

Equally suited for a dreamy case of wishful holiday thinking and a more dire case of restless wanderlust, the road for all travellers leads to this café. With travel books, brilliant photography and tales from other travellers, you’ll feel like you’ve been around the world in 80 sips or less. While the coffee isn’t particularly high-brow, it’s the brew that unites the like-hearted.

Cafe Turtle

An oldie but a goodie. This café taught us the original joys of catching up over a cup of coffee with friends or your favourite read. Their special blends are still as carefully crafted, and we still love the Affogato, which is a scoop of ice cream topped with a beautifully blended shot of espresso.

Latitude 28

If you’ve ever walked through the Good Earth store pretending it’s your home {what, only we’ve done that?}, this is where you’d invite friends to step into your chambers for a coffee. Perfect for mulling over whether you really, really need that dinner set on your way out, Latitude will serve up just the cup you’d been waiting for.

Sibang Bakery

Sibang Bakery is a Korean patisserie offering fresh bakes Korean style, and reaffirming our belief that no matter where we go, it usually comes down to just that one thing to unite the world. In this case, it might be one of their iced brews with a sharp and delicious coffee note that will have us crossing one wrist over the other and doing the dance for the next few hours.

The CUPnCAKE Factory

We’ll be honest – it’s really the smell of cupcakes that we love at this little space on Sohna Road. We’re like icing magpies, gazing flittingly at all the colour and sparkles and sprinkles and…oh yes, another cup of coffee please.
