The story of this coffee shop has passed into hotel industry legend. Asked to renovate the Ambassador and given hardly any money by the Taj management, the then General Manager, Abhijit Mukherji, threw out hotel concepts of design and sat down and planned this quirky coffee shop with a little help from his wife. It looks slightly tired now but is still a quiet change from the bustle of the Khan Market places. And the food's still good.

This 24X7 coffee shop is one of a kind in a city like Delhi and is popular for its playful ambience. This coffee shop has thrown out all conventional ideas out of the window and tried to give a refreshing spin to 24X7 dining.
Best way to start any all-day dining menu is through breakfast. Stop by before work to grab a hearty breakfast or if you happen to be visiting in the evening, then starters.

Yellow Brick Road does a wonderful variety of sugar concoctions. Indulge in, hot chocolate fudge, apple pie with ice cream, kulfi falooda, banana split, crème caramel, bull’s eye and gulab jamun with ice cream. One might assume by the name Yellow Brick Road that the restaurant is themed after Wizard of Oz but here you’re wrong. The restaurant is inspired by Elton John’s song by the same name. The interiors seem fashioned after farm, so you will see a lot of interesting farm-based curios. Yellow Brick Road is expensive, watch out for that.
