Cafe Hopping In Saidulajab, En Route Garden Of Five Senses

10 minutes away from the Saket malls lies a stretch of  road which is day by day, becoming a buzzing hub of cafes and restaurants. Get off at Saket metro station and walk towards the Garden Of Five Senses. Here are some places where you can drop in for a quick sip and a bite.

Rose Cafe

One of the first places to have graced Saidulajab with its presence, Rose Cafe still has our hearts with its dainty Victorian decor. They wake-y us with a platter of eggs and bacey, and keep us fuelled with crunchy waffles paired with lemon curd. The low fat pizzas and bacon jalapeno tarts comprise our regular order, followed by a scoop of their uber dark Dark Chocolate Gelato.

Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters

If coffee makes your your world go round, a visit to Blue Tokai is a must. A roastery, they use only the finest quality of beans, and you can taste this. They do a variety of both hot and cold coffees. Our favourite includes the cappuccinos which come in sea salt and chilli flavours. They’ve recently started doing a pretty great cold brew too. Hungry? Pick up a chicken and basil quiche.


Jugmug Thela

This cafe is modelled along the lines of a chai ki tapri. It essentially comprises a window where you place your order and super informal seating- think stools. Currently they’re doing beverages only, but they’re doing them well. We usually go for the 12 Secret Ingredient Masala Chai on a rainy day or the Viennese Cream Coffee when we need a wake up call. They’re going add some light bites to their menu soon.

Dark House

Done up in all-black, Dark House is like the goth version of the quintessential Delhi cafe. There’s a small seating section and the menu is a mish mash of fast food like burgers and sandwiches interspersed with the city favourite, Chinjabi. We aren’t hearing spectacular things about their food but it seems like a good enough pit-stop, especially for the metro commuters.


PS: There’s plenty of hidden designer boutiques around this area in case you want to go around exploring and scoring some unique garb.
