With house music at a low, throbbing level and an industrial-look ceiling, it is hard to believe you are in Apni Dilli. This is the old Mocha brand taken to the next level. The art that covers the walls is all for sale. You could walk through this black-and-white space, pick up a print and walk out, but why would you want to miss out on a snacks-only menu that includes bagels, panini, poutines, smoothies, the largest, most comprehensive range of coffees in the city and decadent desserts of the kind that only Riyaaz Amlani can deliver?

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.
