Are You A 90's Child? Then You'll Definitely Remember These Places From Connaught Place

Grace posted on 19 January

Before HKV and Cyber Hub came up, Connaught Place was where it was at. Be it weekends with the fam, or a chilling session with school friends, it was a given that we’d be going to CP. That’s exactly why when most of us 90s kids talk about our childhood, we inevitably refer to many old faves from Connaught Place. While we’ve bid goodbye to many of the places {Wimpy’s will always be missed}, here are the places that have stood the test of time.


You’ve probably ordered at least one birthday cake from this place. Remember how tough it was to make a choice when standing at Wenger’s? Because, be it the chocolate truffle pastry or the chocolate eclairs, everything happened to be equally good and it still is!

Shake Square

Take a left turn from Wenger’s and just round the corner is Shake Square, which has been keeping us happy with their milkshakes for quite a while now. Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, butterscotch, coffee or even mango, they’ve got a variety of flavors for everyone. In fact, they’ve now started serving sugar-free milkshakes as well so that the diet conscious peeps don’t miss out on the good stuff. The creamy milkshakes are the reason you’ll always find a long line outside the kiosk, no matter when you visit it.

A shopping spree at Janpath is never complete without cold coffee from Depaul’s. They’ve added momos, cheese balls and grilled sandwiches, which go perfectly well with the coffee they offer. While they’ve got a lot of flavours for their cold coffee now, the long-standing mocha almost always runs out by the end of the day.

Way before hot chocolate fudge was a thing, Nirula’s was doing it. While there’s a lot of places that do sundaes and hot chocolate fudge now, no one can ever replace Nirula’s. Remember the time we would visit it every weekend just for a scoop of ice cream?

Kake Da Hotel

This place has got us all hooked on to their delicious butter chicken since we were kids. If you’re a true blue Delhi kid, chances are this is your go-to place for everything tandoori and North Indian. Be it a vegetarian dal makhni or chicken curry, they really have some secret recipes that have kept us going back to them for years.
