Check out the best bakeries in Delhi that will make you want to indulge your sweet tooth
The Delhi summers are in full swing and don’t seem to end anytime soon. But the perk of it is that you get to soothe the warmth outside with delicious treats like cookies, muffins, cakes, breads, tarts, and pies. So, if these sweets, desserts, savoury, and bakery products evoke the foodie in you, without being reminded of how unhealthy or fattening it can be, then this article is going to make you happy. For lovers of all things baked – both sweet and savory – here’s a guide to the best bakeries in Delhi that you must absolutely visit!
L’Opera – Khan Market
This is one café in Delhi where you might struggle to find a table instantly. But I assure, waiting to secure a seat on its high-top rustic chairs will prove to be worth it. Like the warm, freshly baked breads and cakes, alongside creamy cappuccino, hadn’t swept us off our feet, their newly-introduced macaroons have taken everyone by surprise. Balanced flavors and abundant variety, the L’Opera has managed to perfect the art of getting macarons right – creamy, crunchy, and delicate!
Our favourites: Vanilla Raspberry Verrine, Almond Croissant, Raisin Brioche, Spinach & Goat Cheese Quiche, Mille Feuillet
Address: 5B, Khan Market, New Delhi
The Big Chill Cakery – Saket
While most of us have heard of their delicious vodka pasta, which is considered the best in town, but the dessert-lover in you won’t be any less impressed with Big Chill outlets. Once you pay them a visit, you will agree with my view on their cakes and desserts. Their star dessert remains Mix Berry Cheesecake – something that very few have been able to ace so far. To add to it, their chic pink-blue interiors, subtle tunes at the background, and white seating arrangements make it one of the best bakeries in Delhi.
Our favourites: Peach & Cream Cake, Red Velvet Pastry, Baked Potatoes with Tuna, Mayonnaise & Cheddar, Salted Caramel Brownie, Carrot Cake
Address: 122, Ground & first floor, DLF Avenue Mall (was earlier known as DLF Place), Saket
Wenger’s – Connaught Place
Among the top bakeries in Delhi, Wenger’s always leads the list. Commenced in 1926, this bakery has never given a single reason to any customer to not return back. For cakes, savoury patties, biscuits, tarts, doughnuts, and other quick snacks, head on to Wenger’s and you won’t feel disappointed – I vouch. You may even try out their rolls and sandwiches that stand out in their own way, making this legendary outlet one of the favorites of foodies!

The aroma of the crisp waffles, fluffy crepes, and gooey pastries will make you visit the place not once, but again and again. If you are someone with a sweet tooth and love delectable breakfasts, this bakery will prove to be a great choice.
