Hauz Khas Village is undoubtedly one of the most preferred party places across Delhi. Boasting of a line-up of the city's best cafes and restaurants, HKV has all it takes to be the most 'happening' place in the town. However, lately it has been facing competition from its own neighborhood. Safdarjung Development Area or SDA Market, situated within a kilometer of HKV is fast emerging to be one of the best alternatives to Hauz Khas Village for Delhites . Its development has happened over the recent years. Each fortnight one can see a new café opening in the market. Its vibe is remarkably different from HKV, yet SDA is less populated from Hauz Khas village. SDA is just perfect for that lazy afternoon or evening you would want to spend with your loved company or just by yourself with a cup of coffee. Here are 5 Best Coffee Shops in SDA Market for days you just want to enjoy lovely conversations or snuggle in corner with your favourite book.
1 .Honey and Dough
As soon as you enter the cute little bakery cum coffee shop, you are met with the soft aroma of coffee and fresh desserts. In addition to Espresso, Americano, Affagoto, Macchioto and Mocha, Honey and Dough also has delectable beverages on offer like Hot Chocolate, Earl Grey Tea, Green Coffee, a bevy of freak shakes and Chamomile tea as well. As you sip into your coffee, you can also enjoy a bite of their indulgent desserts. Belgian Chocolate Waffle and Custard Eclair are our personal favourite.
Overshadowed by the extensive range of some of the best Italian, Continental and Mediterranean dishes, #nofilter's beverages often doesn't get its due. But the truth is that #nofilter's coffee is quite impressive and a must try in SDA Market. Moderately priced, the cappuccino of #nofilter is perfectly brewed and the French Press is the ultimate answer to your coffee cravings. Vegans can try their special #nofilter Vegan Cold Coffee. You can also try their creamy Hot Chocolate, refreshing Masala chai and Matcha tea as well.
With its extensive range of dishes and beverages, Qahwa has managed to win several hearts ever since its establishment in the SDA Market. Qahwa's flavoured coffee is an absolute must try! Their delightful combinations like the After Sunset Coffee (Qahwa's special mango flavoured coffee), Iced Ginger Honey Coffee, Rose Almond Coffee, Cinnamon Coffee and Toffee Nut Coffee are a must try for all coffee lovers out there.
Theobroma in SDA has been in news ever since its launch. Who can forget a mile long queue outside the South Delhi outlet on the day of its opening! Famous for its decadent brownies, indulgent tarts, quiche, pastries and cheesecakes, Theobroma also makes for a delightful place to have coffee. Flavoured, black, hot or cold, Theobroma's coffee is as delightful as its desserts. Their exotic milkshakes and flavoured iced teas are also a must try. The cute mint green and white furniture, pretty wall paintings and the endearing décor serves as the perfect backdrop to relish all the goodness.
5.The Brew Room
The cozy coffee shop may be one of the newest entrants in SDA Market, but with its eclectic range of exotic coffees, The Brew Room is fast becoming quite popular amongst coffee snobs. Be spoilt for choice as you pick from their Italian, Special, Chilled, and Artisanal range of coffees. From Salted Caramel Mocha, Espresso to Americano, they have it all in their Italian section. What's so special about their 'Special' range, you ask? Their 'Cold Drip Coffee', is an eighteen hour brewed coffee which is served in a wine glass. Then there is special German coffee popular for its mild and citrusy flavour. The aromatic Turkish coffee makes it to the list too.
