Located in the heart of the national capital, Connaught Place (or CP as it is popularly known), is a haven for foodies, shoppers, and history buffs. Here are 6 places that make CP a special place for all Delhiites:
One of the oldest bakeries in the city, Wenger’s holds a special place in the hearts of Delhiites. Started in the 1920’s by a Swiss couple, this place has not lost its old charm. It promises the best quality at the best prices. From creamy Lemon swiss rolls to devilishly good mutton patties, Wenger’s will leave you smacking your lips in delight.
Indian Coffee House
If you are a broke coffee addict then CP has the best place to offer! Located in a now dilapidated building, Indian Coffee House will take you back in time. Set in 1975, it was considered to be the “adda” of politicians, writers, poets and debaters. With its simple and cheap food, this rooftop coffee house has an aura which will you compel you to come back again and again.
If you love shopping and have a knack for bargaining, then head over to Janpath. From colourful clothes to quirky sunglasses- this place has a range of things to offer. Janpath is a hot spot for both tourists and Delhiites.
Tired from shopping in the blistering heat? Refresh yourself by having, arguably, one of the best cold coffees Delhi has to offer! Another hot spot for coffee lovers, Depaul’s has been a staunch pillar of Janpath for a very long time. From Costa to Starbucks-this place has seen it all. It is still a favourite of all the dilliwalahs.
Cha Bar/Oxford Book Store
This place is heaven-like for all those who love reading. If you are a voracious reader then you will not be able to resist visiting Oxford Book Store again and again. Accompanying the bookstore is Cha Bar, a small café with delicious and pocket-friendly food. The combination of food and books makes this place you only get to see in movies.
Gurudwara Bangla Sahib
One of the most important places to visit while you are in Delhi, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is always full of activity. Once the palace of Raja Jai Singh, it is the most prominent shrine for Sikhs. It is located in the heart of the city and a must visit!
