Thank god for cafes! No, really. Work or dates, chilling with friends or just spending time alone and the best of all, cravings! If we go back even a few years ago the idea of weekend chilling was all about a getaway or maybe getting Chai and Bun Maska from a Tapri and maybe going on a long drive and although both of these still are great and viable options, nothing can take away the charm of visiting a café and having the perfect weekend! It’s 2021 afterall and we deserve this! If you are looking for cafes in Delhi that should be on your radar for good food, great ambiance and perfect pictures then here is a list curated specially for you. I have been to all of these cafes and absolutely love everything about them.
1. Mia Bella
Got a date? Wanna work overlooking a beautiful view? Wanna have those perfect Instagram worthy pictures? Or just want to enjoy good food and music? Then Mia Bella is the place to go.

Be it the music or the lighting, the ambiance or the food, everything is just perfect.

Guess this one needs no introduction, for all the right reasons! Their oldest outlet opposite KNC is dreamy enough to make you fall in love but if you wanna visit a cafe that’s synonymous with the word Insta-worthy then check out their Chanakyapuri outlet! Greenery always increases the charm of a place multifold and the outdoor seating with a swing and the fancy bird cages just make this place look other worldly and the food is just as great!
Location: Santushti Shopping Complex Shop No-10 Opp Samrat Hotel, New Delhi, Delhi 110003
Must Try: Signature Ravioli, Apple Crumble Pie, Smoked Chicken Risotto, Baked Penne Pasta
