Remember how on weekends, we would marvel at the beauty of Old Delhi, languidly walk through the narrow bustling lanes of Paharganj, browse through a gazillion books that line the sides of the streets and immerse ourselves in the charm of olden times. Even better? It used to be a perfect way to spend time with our bestie while exploring all the historic breakfast eateries in Paharganj and polishing off all the scrummies on a budget! But the current scenario makes it a little difficult to check all these off our list, so we have made a list of historic brekkie spots here that you can memorise for a visit once things get better. Psssst... Some of these places might be closed at the moment.
