Who knew that a tiny stall called Anna’s Cafe has been parked outside NIFT for 16 years? For 16 years Anna has been selling lip-smacking South India food at the most affordable prices ever. He has been saving us one hunger pang at a time.
For all the vegetarians this is a must try place and for all the ‘Tuesday’ believers like me this can be your ‘go to place’.
My personal favourite is The Vadas. No other place can balance the exterior crispiness and the inner softness of a Vada like Anna. I know it’s hard to believe considering it’s a small time ‘thela’ but that is the exciting aspect as well.
Unlike other dhabas or thelas, Anna doesn’t serve in recyclable plates (well you can ask for one if you want). Instead he serves the Vadas and the idlis in a bowl with a ‘topping’ of sambar and coconut chutney. The dosas are made right in front of you and served hot so that you can dive right in.
Although there isn’t much variety at Anna’s Cafe, there will always be one dish which shall become your personal favourite. To top it all you get to experience this for just Rs.30. Like I said he is a superhero.
If you want to be a part of this 16 year old legacy, head on over to NIFT near Hauz Khas market and Green Park Metro Station. Hope to see you folks soon!
P.S- You can always ask for extra coconut chutney. Anna never says no 😀

Craving amazing food in the middle of your classes? Cafe 6 is here to the rescue. Located near Hauz Khas market, Cafe 6 is a common hang out spot for college students from NIFT, Gargi and Kamla Nehru. For the people who don’t know about this place, you’re about to be introduced to Foodie heaven!
Although the Cafe is tiny, its quaintness adds to the ambience. With an indoor and outdoor seating as well, Cafe 6 is the perfect place to spend hours talking to your college mates or to just sit and enjoy a book.
I, myself have spent hours here doing ‘peth pooja’. I would definitely call myself a Cafe 6 lover. There menu is bursting with variety and it’ll take ages to try each one of them (I really want to). My standard order here is the Cheesy Chicken Burger along with Fries and Peach ice tea (I’m drooling just thinking about it). The amount of cheese in the burger is just about right. Neither too ‘drippy’ nor is it less. The chicken is juicy and filling. Wedged between vegetables, this burger is a doorway to heaven. Their Peach ice tea is like the cherry on the cake! Out of every restaurant that I have ever visited, this serves the best Peach ice tea. And all of this just for Rs.190. *Gasps*
But hold on! This is just the tip of the ice-berg. There is more. For cheese and potato lovers like me, you have to try cheesy-greedy potatoes and no do not think about the calories, just think about the concoction of the mozzarella and potatoes melting in your mouth. Italian junkies, Mushroom Sauce Pasta and Chicken Panini’s are on their way. And finally for the sweet tooth, there is the famous chocolate pudding and brownies!
Imagine this is not even 10% of the menu! There is a lot to discover at this joint. For the lazy bums they also home deliver so not to worry!
So come on down to Cafe 6 people! It won’t burn a hole in your pocket but it’ll definitely put a smile on your face.
