Kunzum Travel Cafe

While exploring a new area of Delhi, Hauz Khas Village, yesterday with "the other expat at work" (Kristin), we happened upon the Kunzum Travel Cafe, which is a fairly unique establishment created by Ajay Jain, who is a prominent Indian travel writer.

(OK, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'm not sure how prominent, but I had randomly stumbled upon his blog a week or so ago, Kristin learned of the cafe from Time Out Delhi, and he's published a couple books. Counts as prominent in my book.)
The concept is part coffee shop, part photography gallery, and part hangout for travelers and friends. They have good coffee and a very pressure-free environment. Their policy is simple, if you like the coffee, pay what you want. And stay as long as you wish.

If you're exploring the 13th century ruins of the Hauz Ghas complex or shopping in the area (lots of antique furniture stores that I'm sure will attract the wife), and need a place to cool down or just to relax, it's well worth a stop.

Tel: +91.9650 702 777, +91.11.26513949
