“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”JOHN GREEN

Isn’t it one, amazing idea of just sitting at a window table in the afternoon watching the day pass by as you flip through the pages of your favorite novel? Characters of this book pinch your nose, shake hands with you, tweak your ear and say out loud “read me more, travel my journey along with me”. We know you’re smiling reading right there.

If you are one lusty bibliophile alike me and absolutely enjoy your alone time at a book café then here’s some special surprise for you! I’ve compiled a list of 5 Book Cafes in Delhi where you can do some self-therapy and discover amazing things about yourself too! No Kidding!

Snuggled in the heart of Connaught Place, Cha Bar is located on the premises of Oxford Bookstore. This Book Café is a paradise in itself for ardent book lovers. If you enjoy listening to book readings and love attending Book Launches by famous Indian authors then this café might be just the right stop for you. You can reach there by getting down at Rajiv Chowk metro station and can have a ball of time all by yourself.

Rose Café is my favorite spot to be whenever I am in and around South Delhi. Rose Café is situated in Said-ul-Ajab in Saket and its interiors are breathtaking. Delicate, gorgeous, literally as pretty as a picture, this café in Saket in Delhi is a secret garden in the hustle and bustle of the big, busy capital. If Enid Blyton and Pinterest had a lovechild, it would probably be this café.

  1. Café Wanderlust, Gurgaon

As the name suggests, this café gives an artist the real contentment of alone time. This place is famous for its platters and the diverse books the staff places on every table of the café. I strongly suggest trying their mezze’ and breakfast platter.

  1. Ricos, GTB Nagar

Famous for its Italian dishes, this restaurant will offer you everything to swallow! I meant – swallow the musings of famous authors. This café’s interiors are a real charm to the visitor’s eyes. The costliest item on the menu will cost you only Rs. 200! You can pick up a magazine, newspaper or comic to read while you sip some coffee inside the incredible décor.

Hailing from New Delhi, Saumya wears her heart on her sleeve for her city. An ailurophile and an author of two novels; she is a voracious reader and divides her time between studying authors and cooks, often simultaneously! Alongside the day job, she’s currently trying to work on a travel blog (The Road Taken and Written) representing India. She can be found on various corners of the internet, but most frequently on Facebook and Twitter as “isaumyakaushik”. If you’re ever interested in discussing Harry Potter, Saumya re-reads the series at least once a year, so drop her a line.
