The Perfect Blend Of Chai And Reading
There are certain days when we just want to sit alone, have a cup full of chai and just indulge in the vast world of books. Those days where you could skip all the activities of your day, take a break from your hectic schedule and cherish the moment all by yourself. And that’s when this cozy cafe makes the best attempt to soothe your soul.
Cha Bar located in the N Block of Connaught Place, New Delhi, offers you in house library and a large variety of teas you possibly, couldn’t even think of.
Upon entering, there are a few lines from Urdu poetry written on the walls which reads:
“Dilli jo ek sheher tha aalam mein intekhab,
rehte the muntakhab hi jahan rozgaar ke”
As you climb up the stairs and enter, there is a beautifully carved lady welcoming you to the pretty interiors of the cafe. Walking inside, there is again a lightning decor in a small space that leads you to the Oxford Bookstore. On the right is the Cha Bar with blue and white interior with not much detailing, and thus keeping it simple yet elegant.
The menu has been perfectly organised with the detailed description of what each item offers. There is a whole section dedicated just for teas and that is what the cafe is popularly known for. You can find all the categories of teas from the perfectly blended ones to Assam and Darjeeling teas to breakfast teas and what not. The menu also offers cold coffees, iced coffees, flavored cafe lattes and other drinks. The food section has all those cheesy beverages and small nibbles. The best part- You can order anything of your wish and it won’t dig a hole in your pocket.
The food served here is simple and at reasonable prices. They do complete justice to all the variety of shakes available. The sandwiches are a good option to go for. Hot chocolate is a must try. I feel the pasta could have been better, which was a bit too dry.
The place where you all can find your scrollmate.
Beautifully developed section for all the book lovers out there. The book store provides you with a variety of notebooks and stationary that you can buy from. There are certain kinds of beauty products and green tea available.
And then there is a peaceful overwhelming space for you to read for as long as you want, to choose from the wide range of books stacked there.
