While both branches of Market Café have a similar appeal, there are fewer stairs to climb in Greater Kailash! The Khan Market branch has metamorphosed into a young people’s hangout, where customers come to meet friends, work on their laptops and take cigarette breaks on the tiny adjoining terrace. In Greater Kailash, the décor is reminiscent of a private house with plenty of squashy sofas. Market Café is well-known for its breakfasts with waffles, pancakes, mushroom or cheese toasts and eggs to order. In addition, there’s a full menu, but the café bustles at 9 am when it opens.
Entering ‘Market Café’ will make you feel of arriving at a beautiful home with lots of comfortable chairs. The inside of the café is casual and airy. Its posh location, GK-2, New Delhi, certainly helps. Decent smart looking tables awaits the customers to be seated and they are good but the plush sofas get the most attention. You will find the sofas always occupied by group of youngsters chatting and catching up. Best seats in the house are the one next to the picture windows. The view you will get from them is incredible. Colour combination of purple and off white lends a Mediterranean feel to the café. Sheer white curtains gently swinging with breeze can confuse you into thinking of being at a beach house. I simply adore the openness of the ambience. Some customers slip on the terrace for smoke breaks. You will find customers even at 9 am busy on the laptops here. It’s that peaceful.
