Hit Up Nirvana Courtyard For All-Day Breakfast, Ethnic Outfits & Freakshakes

Ten-Second Takeaway

Nirvana Country is one of the most beautiful and self-contained residential neighbourhoods in Gurgaon, combining mini neighbourhoods with villas and towering apartment buildings. Tucked away in South City 2 and a stone’s throw away from Golf Course Extension Road, it’s a little haven of peace and tranquility if you ask us.

At its very heart is the seemingly unassuming Courtyard Market; don’t be fooled by this ‘neighbourhood’ market- it is bursting with a curated list of adorable cafes, interesting retail and even a mobile dog spa!

All-Day Breakfast Spots

We have two favourites in Nirvana Courtyard that serve all-day breakfast – Madison & Pike and C’est La Vie. There is lots to love about Madison & Pike as the locals will tell you: red brick walls, books hanging from the ceiling, quirky chalkboards & a gourmet menu that is full of surprises. We dare you to resist their stunning display of desserts – their Red Velvet Cake is probably the best we’ve had in Gurgaon, the Black Velvet Boozy cake is a total treat and their lemon lavender cake might just transport you to Provence!

C’est La Vie is another pretty little cafe serving all-day breakfast along with Blue Tokai and Sleepy Owl coffee. Friday evenings are for gigs, and we’d definitely suggest stopping by!

For Some Retail Therapy

Ladies, you will be spoiled for choice at Nirvana Courtyard. We love Rang – this store specialises in floor-length, summery dresses and is like a mini Fabindia, but so much more personal.

Check out Samprada for some modern, Indo-Western outfits with a timelessness in their cuts and fabrics; these are Ritu-Kumaresque in their sensibilities but so much more affordable.

If you need a little more couture in your life, look no further than Chetna Bagga’s gorgeous boutique. A peaceful haven in itself with its pleasing interiors, but once you look at the gorgeous designs, you will wonder why you haven’t discovered this earlier. 

When you’re looking to switch things up from ZARA and Mango, infuse a more offbeat aesthetic into your wardrobe with Wisa & Adorabelle. We love their easy breezy style, from dresses to blouses, at affordable prices. 

Don’t forget to stop by Indian Route and shop Kashmiri fabric, Good-Earthesque home decor and blankets, but again so much more affordable.

Kids In Your Party?

Take them straight to Bucko and let them browse an amazing collection of kids room decor. 

Pick up school supplies, books, art materials and pretty much everything you can need from Stationery Mart; we love their Melissa and Doug sticker books that are quite addictive even for adults {ahem}. Paper Caper is another lovely little store for stationery supplies.

Plan A Spa Day

All that shopping got you tired? Courtyard is full of beautiful spas, including one where you can get a massage {complete with a steam room!}. Our favorites include Demeanour – with interiors as beautiful as this, you really don’t feel like you are in a neighborhood salon. We swear by their Vedic Line facial for a cooling treatment this summer, or the Forest Essentials facial for a more decadent treat, and the massages are great value for money!

Layers is perfect for a mani-pedi break, or a hair wash and blow out to get you ready for a night about town later.

Lastly, women in Nirvana Courtyard swear by R’s Miracle’s excellent service and trust no-one but Ruchi with their tresses.

Got A Four-Legged Member In Your Family?

Bring them over because, guess what, while you enjoy that leisurely breakfast, your little pooch can relax at dog spa Trumpetzz. With their mobile van equipped for dog spas, including a pawdicure, they even come to your doorstep if you need them to. 

After that relaxing spa, take doggie over to Oasis Pet Store for a little retail therapy – their collection of toys is incredible.

And in case you are feeling so inclined, the Nirvana Dog Shelter has adorable strays available for adoption, but you can even head here for some play time, tummy rubs and cuddles. 

PS: Did you know that one of the best vets in Gurgaon is now in Courtyard? Pet owners from all over the city flock to Animalia and we’d highly recommend bringing your pet baby here.

Go Grocery Shopping

Choices provides you with pretty much everything you can possibly need, from Blue Cheese to excellent fish and dried cranberries to cocktail nuts. They are just like Le Marche, just easier to navigate.

The latest grocery store to open is the quirkily named FRESH Gal &Sabzi: When you step inside, you might need to take a deep breath. The gorgeous lights, faux grass under your feet may make you think you will be paying through your nose for aloo, pyaaz and more but nope! We snagged a perfectly ripe avocado for INR 59 and a bag of mixed salad greens for INR 28 {you would be paying 100 bucks for this normally}. Their USP is that they source directly from the farm and can thus provide amazingly fresh fruits and veggies at ridiculously low prices.

And For An Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

Morellos’ Messmerising Shakes have quite the fan following and for good reason! We hear the Ferrero Rocher Shake is the best thing since sliced bread.

Or hop over for a coffee back to Madison or C’est La Vie or Legally Sinful, a new bakery in the market.

Take A Pilates Class

Just in case you feel you need to pencil in a fitness routine in your life {especially after all that decadent eating}, may we recommend you hop over to Red Mat Pilates? Walk around Nirvana and you are bound to meet folk who swear by Taru and her crew for helping them out with injuries, building core strength and just looking good.
