This is truly one of the friendliest and most interesting cafés of Delhi. Often crowded with musicians, writers, travelers and bloggers, Kunzum Travel Café aims to encourage everyone to travel and document their experiences. The most interesting fact about this place is that you walk in, make friends with strangers, engage in beautiful conversations, drink coffee, eat cookies and leave. They have a ‘pay what you like’ policy. Hence, you don’t have to worry about expensive bills. On a bad day, it is even okay to leave without paying. Sit there for hours with a book or a guitar, relax as much as you what because nobody will bother you otherwise! Although they don’t offer food, their charm is worth experiencing. P.S- the café remains closed on Mondays.
