10 Chilled Out Delhi NCR Cafes Where You Can Really Work!

Until yesterday, working from a cafe was a foreign concept; only a part of European culture. Emerging cafes in India were meant for hangouts. Hollywood movies inspired us to sit on a table alone and let our thoughts flow, read a book or just work. Unfortunately, having a good time alone sounded alien to our culture.
In the last year or so, Delhi has witnessed a resurgence. Start-ups were looking for cheap office alternatives and then these amazing ideas started blossoming on coffee tables. Freelancers, creatives wanted an avenue to finally relax, sip on coffee and hum with their work. Delhi, with its eclectic quirky vibes, has a lot of cafe options to work at. We might not be as cool as Bangalore yet, still we are catching up.

A very obvious suggestion for anyone who visits Delhi and looks for a work cafe is ‘Social Offline’. People looking to work in cafes sure need great WiFi and great food, but more than that, they need a quiet, low setting. Less chaos, more inspiration.

So here we list 13 lesser-known but perfect quiet, inspiring work cafes  in Delhi where you can get it all – great food, great ambience, great WiFi!


1. KunZum Cafe, Hauz Khas Village

If you are someone whose artsy work needs creative inspiration, then this is the place for you. Comfortable, low-floor seating with stacked up travel books which are complimented by candid travel pictures on white walls. Its relaxing and casual. You can sit for as long as you like. The most interesting part is you can PAY WHATEVER YOU LIKE. Their regular meetups are a great way to meet new people. However, ask them in advance about this in case you wish to work in a quiet ambiance.
