For when food is a priority |


amici_free wifi

One of our favourites, perfect for any time of day and any type of requirement. For a more intimate setting, stick to the Defence Colony and Khan Market outlets.

Where: Defence Colony Market and Khan Market; Contact: 011 45572003 {Defence Colony} and 011 43587191 {Khan Market}

Latitude 28

Latitude is high up on our list, courtesy Ritu Dalmia’s culinary expertise. They only switch their Wi-Fi on post 4pm, so evening coffees are most recommended; dinner time may get very noisy.

Where: Khan Market; Contact: 011 24621013

Smokehouse Deli

Smack in the middle of HKV, it doubles up perfectly as an all-day workspace. For working evenings, try the Vasant Kunj outlet.

Where: Hauz Khas Village; Contact: 011 26567001

Café Diva

They only open their doors at 5.30pm and have limited seating. Head over to work, over a cappuccino and one of their incredible desserts.

Where: GK1 N Block; Contact: 9810802346

Lodi Restaurant

Picturesque outdoor seating and almost fine-dining, pick Lodi for important power lunches. We would say dinner, but it borders on too romantic. But hey, depends on how you get a job done!

Where: Lodi Restaurant, Lodhi Road; Contact: 011 33036325

Hungry Monkey

Situated in a market that doesn’t see too much human traffic, Hungry Monkey is perfect both for when food is the priority, or if you want a space to work all day. Our suggestion: if food isn’t a concern, stay away at lunch and dinner hours, especially on a weekend.

Where: DDA Market, Safdarjung Enclave, Deer Park; Contact: 9810788196

Le Bistro Du Parc

A French Bistro, their menu is ideal for someone spending an entire day here and not looking for heavy meals.

For when food counts, but you’d rather drink coffee |

Ivy and Bean
