If you follow me on social media you’d already know I’m just back from a short yet action packed trip up north. As excited as I have been to go on a holiday, I was kind of upset I’d be missing out on the Christmas build-up back home. In case you don’t know me AT ALL – let me enlighten you – I absolutely adore Christmas! My level of enthusiasm is legit Santa Claus after a few happy drinks. I guess that’s what growing up in Bandra, studying in a Convent school, being a member at a Catholic club, and watching too much American television does to you!
So as I was saying, my tree was up and decorated but I was headed to Delhi, Jaipur, Amritsar, and Haryana and really thought I’d miss out on that Christmassy feeling. Imagine my excitement when I arrived at a place that was bedecked with fairy lights and wreaths and looked like a Winter Wonderland in good ol’ Delhi! (Bonus points for the absolutely crazy cold weather to make a girl feel like she’s really in the North Pole!)
That’s right – there’s a place called Diggin in Delhi and it’s a pretty cafe nestled in a quiet area. Apparently there are two branches – I visited the newer one in an area called Chanakyapuri.
I went in the evening so didn’t end up sampling the food (they have Italian mainly), but I did end up having the most deliciously rich chocolate cake and super yum Ferrero shake. I can vouch for the quality of their desserts and the prices won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
There are just a few things to remember –
- They don’t serve alcohol
- They are a bit anal about letting you click pictures because the cafe is located inside a military area. This is such a shame because honestly it’s one of the most insta-worthy places I’ve seen!
(I managed to get in a few pictures before I knew about their policy but I so wish I could show you the inside of the Cafe too. Made of blonde wood, it really has a cozy cabin vibe)
If you are in Delhi, you must NOT miss this place. It’s the perfect little coffee date place according to me!
