Coffee Home (CP, New Delhi) – Budget Friendly Café under the Giant Shaded Banyan Tree

Menu of Coffee Home (Baba Kharak Singh Marg, Connaught Place, New Delhi, India)Giant Banyan Tree at Coffee Home (Baba Kharak Singh Marg, Connaught Place, New Delhi, India)My Delhi/local friend suggested visiting Coffee Home operated by DTTDC (Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation) if I am at Pracheen Hanuman Mandir (Baba Kharak Singh Marg, Connaught Place) because it is oppositely located.

He suggested sitting under the giant shaded Banyan tree at the backside of the Coffee Home.

After visiting Pracheen Hanuman Mandir and having tea at Netaji Chai Wale and then Urad Dal Kachori at Shri Hanuman Kachori (all within the temple-area), I decided to visit Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib via bus No. 73 (bus fare – Rs. 5) from outside of Connaught Place Police Station (under the tree) next to Pracheen Hanuman Mandir.

After visiting Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib and having langar (community kitchen which serves free meals), I decided to visit Coffee Home.

Again bus No. 73 from Rakab Ganj Gurdwara bus stop for Pracheen Hanuman Mandir.

Bus fare – Rs. 5/- only.

Within minutes I reached.

The moment I was about to enter the Coffee Home, I read – Official work and laptops are not allowed here.

Timings: 11 am – 7 pm

Coffee Home has a large space. The hall – fully-packed and has an open area under the giant shaded Banyan tree.

I decide to have a seat under the giant shaded Banyan tree. Always better than concrete walls.

I read the menu which is vegetarian.

Beverages, South Indian, and Fast Food.

And the rate – budget-friendly.

As the stomach was full, I requested Filter Coffee – Rs. 50/- only.

Self-serving cafe. Nothing fancy.

I with my Filter Coffee towards the giant shaded Banyan tree because the hall was a little noisy.

How was the Filter Coffee?

OK OK, but what I like the most was the ambiance around the giant shaded Banyan tree.

I suggest: if you want a great natural experience at the heart of the famous Connaught Place/New Delhi, visit this hidden budget cafe to sit, chat and have food/snacks under the giant shaded Banyan tree.

Highly recommended at least once if you are touring Connaught Place/New Delhi.

If I am correct, the nearest metro station for Coffee Home is Rajiv Chowk. The journey continues..
