A day in Delhi is incomplete without having Chole Bhature for breakfast! This outlet in Paharganj has undoubtedly the best Chole Bhature in town.

While the name just suggests samosa, this place must be your go to for samosa, kachori and gulab jamun! The gulab jamun is tender, and has the perfect amount of sweetness, leaving the samosa and kachori incomplete without it.
Dolma House, Majnu Ka Tila
If you have managed to locate this restaurant all the way through the narrow streets of Majnu ka Tila, then you are up for a Tibetan treat! While the entire lane is famous for its Tibetan culture and food, this particular place will leave your taste buds dancing with pleasure! Do order the spicy veg fried momos if you love spicy food. If not, the steamed momos will give you the taste of Tibetan culture well enough for you to want to go there!
The Big Chill, Connaught Place

A gorgeous looking café, this place must be on your list for a delicious serving of a Banoffee Pie. A crunchy base of buttery biscuits, followed by a generous amount of caramel and bananas topped with cold whipped cream and chocolate shavings, the ambience and the taste make the cost worth it!
Ama Café, Majnu Ka Tila
This four storied café has its own bakery and roastery! Order anything off the menu and you will not complain! If one is to narrow it down, do opt for the breakfast, coffee and don’t miss out on the fries!
