Until yesterday, working from a cafe was a different concept; only a part of European society. Developing cafes in India were meant for hangouts. Hollywood films encouraged us to sit at a table alone and let our thoughts flow, read a book or just work. Unfortunately, having the best time alone sounded exotic 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.
A very obvious suggestion for anyone who visits Delhi and looks for a working 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 lesser-known but perfectly quiet, inspiring work cafes in Delhi.
