I come here often whenever I come to Delhi. this place also has a bookstore on the floor below, which in my opinion is the best in Delhi. the food here is good and the menu has many options which are clearly thought out and different from other places. although a little heavy on the pocket, one... read more

One never gets tired of going to Cafe Turtle. Its a place where one can be really comfortable and feel contented. The food is very global and consistently good but not outstanding and that is what I like about the place. Nothing is extravagant or showy, its simple, fresh,, elegant and cosy. Lovely place to get away from cafes which... More

Cafe Turtle is on the 2nd floor of a nice bookshop. It is small, cozy and quite inviting. We visited them at 10 in the morning and had Cinnamon toast which were really good, a mezzo platter (again very good), bruschetta and coffee. It was great food served very quickly in a lovely setting. What more can one ask for.

Café turtle is a simple and inviting little place in khan market which is very unique and different than the other high end expensive eateries in the vicinity. Located in the middle lane above a book store which is owned by the same person is very popular among the foreign crowd visiting this market. The reason is a laidback and... More

I have visited this place twice before and each time foolishly went back on realizing that it was all-veg. Little did i know what I was missing. Thankfully, third time was lucky. This time i visited with someone who was a pure vegetarian and we ordered low cal detox diet , since i was on a 3-day detox. The Cous... More

You go completely through a second floor bookstore to this seemingly unrelated cafe on the third floor. Service was absent until requested but afterwards seemed fine. We had a light, tasty lunch out on the small balcony. It's a restful stop in the market but still plenty noisy from the honking tuk-tuk's just below. Along with the market's higher end... More

Was hoping for a decent breakfast one of the times, but like everywhere they add something (?milk) to their eggs and they are runny. "Bacon" was something more like spam. But if you stick to pastry and coffee, it's an OK breakfast. -- The first floor bookstore is great.

The cafe is nice, all offerings vegetarian but filling and delicious. One can browse through the books and then come eat, or go for the meal straight away. The selection is continental, well prepared and worth experimenting.

Delhi can be overwhelming so this quaint, quirky and chilled cafe is a lovely find, especially as it is above a great bookshop. Has a balcony/terrace and delightful indoor area. Tempting and varied snack/light meal menu. Our food - carrot cake and filled pitta was excellent, healthy and tasty - and the coffee is good.
