If coffee had a headquarters, Warehouse Café would be it. With the aroma of coffee beans pulling guests into its Connaught Place location, the soft, warm lighting in the café is akin to seeing the interior through a coffee filter. With brick walls and cozy seating, Warehouse Café provides mouth watering, soul invigorating coffees; opt for a rich espresso to experience the full on coffee taste, or a mocha for something a little lighter.
