A small shop tucked away in Khan Market, The Artful Baker is known for their extravagant signature items like the chocolate muffin that’s filled with delicious chocolate sauce. If you’re a cupcake fan, enjoy the sea salt and chocolate cupcakes.

Big Chill Cafe

Another Khan Market favorite, Big Chill is another great place to enjoy both a great meal and some fabulous desserts. Sink your teeth into delicious banoffee pies and cheesecakes. Otherwise, choose to indulge in their sinful chocolate mud pie or the thick, filling Belgian shake. Big Chill brings you the best of both casual dining and dessert fare.

While you may be tempted to down a signature Theos 70 percent chocolate mousse shot, the moment you enter this bakery, try and keep some space free for its other creations, like the baked mango cheesecake or the Mississippi Mud Pie – a glorious, gooey mess of chocolate. Worth the expensive price tag, don’t forget to taste their unique Jamaican shakes.


A legendary place on the Delhi good food map, Wenger’s at Connaught Place is a great spot for delicacies like coconut macaroons and lemon pastries. Enjoy a freshly baked chocolate doughnut or the cream buns and fruit tarts. Immensely popular with its regular crowd, one must take the time to visit this place and relish in all that it has to offer. One bite and you will know why it’s remained a popular establishment after so many decades.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel – and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Epic Trips, Mini Trips and Sailing Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travellers and friends who want to explore the world together.

Epic Trips are deeply immersive 8 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and enough down time to really relax and soak it all in. Our Mini Trips are small and mighty - they squeeze all the excitement and authenticity of our longer Epic Trips into a manageable 3-5 day window. Our Sailing Trips invite you to spend a week experiencing the best of the sea and land in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm – and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
