“Eating and Reading are two pleasures that combine admirably.” – C.S. Lewis
So What’s the Real Deal..? A Free Book with Every Meal..
The Nerdy Indian Café is one of a kind concept café inspired by the idea of reading and eating together. A quaint cute, cosy place located in Said ul Ajab, Saket, right at the turn of the road. It’s hard to miss. The outside wall features a Nerdy Guy in the spectacle, adjusting his bow, and it reads – It’s a Match.
With a minimum order value of INR 500, the café promises a free book that you can pick from their book rack, which has a collection of over 1,000 pre-owned books of all kinds of genre. The collection consists of 1000+ books and they are constantly replenishing the stock every week.
The ambiance of the café is very lively and inviting. Decked in shades of blue and green, the entire space throws positive energy at you. The interiors are all about books and furniture. Your eyes will be at their huge rack of books mounted on a classic wall structure, which can be called their little library. You can straight away head to the installation and pick your favorite reads. All their tabletops are covered in comic strips which are fun reads while you wait for your food.
They have a variety of Italian-styled dim sums. We tried their specialty, the Al Freddo-styled Momos – Momos dipped in a yummy arrabiatta sauce. It was really drool worthy delicious.
Oreo Brownie was definitely the star of the show. A must try dish if you visit the place.
You can come here on a date with your nerdy partner or with a bunch of other bibliophiles or may even drop in solo and interact with the whole rack of books. Or you can bring your little ones here and encouraging them to read while they enjoy the delightful food.
If you are a bibliophile then, I think it’s time to Bookmark this café..!
