Mocha is as colourful a coffee bar as you could possibly get. The coffee served here tries to include specialities from all over the world, including Ethiopian Yergacheffe. The beverages, however, get hijacked by the ambience. The menu consists of snacks like Poutine that are loaded with calories and taste. Start the Mocha experience with an Oreo Cookie and Fudge Brownie Shake. Also worth the indulgence is the rnRocky Road Shake - Marshmallows, Walnuts and Chocolate Ice Cream. And where else in Delhi would one get Bun Maska and Chai? Likewise, the Philly Cream Cheese and Chilli Panino are good. The desserts at Mocha deserve special mention. Try the Lava Lava or Hot Molten Chocolate. The formula: serious food in snazzy surroundings. PYTs flock here because of the bright mood of the place.

The cafe that pioneered the global coffee and sheesha trend is now doing its bit to get you cheap deals of the spirited kind. A place for all occasions — whether you're hanging out with friends, at a casual date, or spending some time alone in the middle of a busy day — their well-rounded wine and beer menu is a welcome respite. The dim lighting, comfortable couch seating and casual atmosphere makes you want to stay a little longer, which you definitely should. Except the newest Civil Lines outlet, each Mocha offers global and Indian beer along with white, red and sparkling wine and Breezers. Sangria is also on the menu along with popular cocktails like the Cosmopolitan and Caipiroska. The thick American shakes and juices continue to be good options for teetotalers and besides the all-day breakfast, starters like Mezze Platter, Nacho Grande and Satay Chicken are fast movers. The DLF Promenade branch is an evolution of the brand called Mocha ArtHouse, which has a more open and minimal decor with the graffiti artist painted wall as the highlight. ArtHouse also has an outdoor seating option that is popular for its prime view of the mall courtyard and its dancing fountain. The best part about Mocha is that they keep everything unique even while being a chain, and for that reason, we highly recommended it.

I've never written a review while still at that restaurant/cafe. Well, there's always a first time. My first LIVE review!!
My meeting at the Defence Colony Market finished much sooner than expected. I have some time to kill, so, I'm having a nice cup of coffee at Mocha, waiting for my next meeting and writing this review. I have to admit this is fun. I don't have to devote all my energies trying to recall what I saw and ate at the restaurant I was at. I should do this more often.
The coffee that was served to me was a little too strong for my liking but the sweet server "Irene" said she would add more milk to it to make it just perfect for me. The coffee is perfect now. I am really enjoying it.
Irene is a name derived from εἰρήνη, it is Greek for "peace" and that brings me to how peaceful Mocha is during the day. It is quite dark and has light music playing. They are actually playing "nothing's gonna change my love for you" which is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Michael Masser, originally recorded by George Benson for his 1985 album 20/20. It's a classic but I think it's reached its expiration date. Anyhow, I am almost done with my coffee and I've got a meeting so I'm out!
Oh, I totally forgot to mention. They have FREE WIFI. I'm so glad I din't have to use Personal Hotspot - whatever is happing with 3G in Delhi?!

The best ever Ethiopian Yergacheffe coffee, you can get at the Mocha. The nice and calm ambiance will help you in giving you all comforts. I just forget about the calories and every time order Poutine. The Oreo Cookie and Fudge Brownie Shake are just out of the world. The waiters are quite amicable and prompt. They don’t want you to wait for hours for grabbing your yummilicious food and coffee. Mocha serves you at the best.

Nice place to chill with friends and have coffee. Desserts here are really nice, the taste of food goes really well with the cosy ambience.
