Usually the post office is a place that many people associate with the task of picking up mail, or of old world bureaucracy, and colonial nostalgia. However, the newly opened Post Office Cafe in Rajouri Garden is turning heads and getting people excited, with its innovative food, ambience, and chef driven leadership.

The food at the Post Office Cafe takes on several cuisines of the world; there are Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Mediteranean, and Indian dishes on offer. The cafe offers multiple courses, including an amuse bouche, starters, mains, and desserts. The worldly cuisine is also reflected in the Post Office Cafe’s worldly and un-pretentious decor. There are framed pictures of post offices from all over the globe, as well as a wall of fame where people can write up and post their wishes. There’s even little salt and pepper shakers in the shape of British red box phone booths and post boxes, as well as colourful stamps and locks to decorate the walls. If you’re in a rush, fear not! The cafe also offers the busy Delhiite what Chef Jasline calls “the metro station concept”. This includes a tiffin consisting of a salad, main course, and dessert.

The chef driven entertainment is also particularly unique. The Post Office Cafe offers live cooking demonstrations and lessons for its patrons, by head Chef Jasline. Other options for entertainment at the Post Office Cafe include live Sufi music nights, with hookah as well.

Who would have thought that the Post Office is the new place to hang out? With live entertainment, kitschy decor, and a huge variety of cuisines, the Post Office Cafe brings good food and playful charm to the previously one dimensional institution.
