LBB likes it for

Providing catering with a conscience. Much of the produce comes courtesy of chemical-free growers, FARM LOVE in the verdant surrounds of Vasant Kunj, whilst the beans are CAARA’s own Mysore blend. Mull over The British Council’s art installations with a cup of masala chai: Café culture in the truest sense.

The food and drink

Where to start? For caffeine addicts and coffee snobs, don’t leave without sampling CAARA’s own blend. If visiting in the AM they do an on-the-go Breakfast Smoothie containing banana, oats, yoghurt and honey. Lunchtime treats include that BBQ Pulled Pork Panini, an energising Super Food Salad, plus a moist and nutty in equal parts, carrot cake.

Worth waiting for

For those of you working in Connaught Place watch this space: In the future CAARA café will be offering an office delivery service.
