It’s Raining? You Need These Restaurants With Covered Rooftops For Meals & Views

Rene posted on 17 July

Paper boats and getting soaked… Childhood was probably the only time we really enjoyed the rains, right? Years later, we’re cooped up adults in offices or sulk pots bundled up in our bed all monsoons. Okay we aren’t suggesting you head out {and eat soggy samosas} when it’s pouring but here’s the next best offer: Covered rooftops. These cafes in the city are ideal if you want to enjoy the lush rain-washed greens from the comfort of a big window or a glass ceiling.

BOA Village

We’ve been meaning to check out this Civil Lines stunner for a while but haven’t gotten around to making a trip that side of town. If BOA Village is in your vicinity, you gotta make a trip just to sit under that transparent roof and eat their much-hyped momo pizza. What else to order? Prawn Tempura Sushi and Veg Bao.

We could go on and on about how beautiful and sunny Imperfecto in Noida looks thanks to its see-through ceiling and ample greenery. You can in fact only imagine that this place really comes to life when it rains. Order yourself a pizza and mocktails and you’ll never want to leave.

PS: They have a whole Maggi Menu right now starting at INR 149.

Pepper Pot Cafe Gurgaon

This Gurgaon cafe is almost as if it were meant for idling away hours. The skyline looks gorgeous and there are pancakes, sandwiches, soups and Kashmiri Kahwa {read quintessential comfort food} that’ll offer all the solace if you’ve gotten soaked. If you’re lucky, it might be raining and it might be a Tuesday so kiddos will eat for free.

Potbelly Rooftop Cafe

Find yourself around Shahpur Jat on an exceptionally cloudy day? Head right over to The Potbelly Rooftop Cafe whose cute interiors and big French Windows will shield you well and keep you happily gorging on litti, keema Maggi, Dehati Fish n’ Chips and sattu paratha. Get yourself Apple Lemonade to while away more time.

Thai High

Seafood, mojitos and the constant sound of rain – we’re talking the trifecta of happiness. Thai High’s gorgeous outdoor seating has a covered area that’s a saviour when it begins to pour cats and dogs. Sangria or beer, you decide but we bet you’ll satay for more. Also, try their crispy chicken and grilled prawns.
