E-Book Review. Thoughts and Conversations by Geethica Mehra

coffeehousecoffee shop, or café is an establishment that primarily serves coffee, related coffee drinks (latte, cappuccino, espresso). A coffeehouse may also serve some type of food, such as light snacks, Sandwiches, Muffins or other pastries.

From a cultural standpoint, coffeehouses largely serve as centers of social interaction: the coffeehouse provides patrons with a place to congregate, talk, read, write, entertain one another, or pass the time, whether individually or in small groups. Since the development of Wi-Fi, coffeehouses with this capability have also become places for patrons to access the Internet on their laptops, Tablets or I-Pads.

Now that we know the purpose of a café, let me tell you this E- book, Thoughts and Conversations, provides complete information on the cafés in and around Delhi. It provides details about the decor, the ambiance, the platter of dishes, the approximate budget for a certain number of people, the closest metro station, Live Music details, whether it is kids-friendly or not and whether books are available for reading or for sale. Of course, the last one is vital information. Books, coffee and music are heavenly. International Coffee Day just went by, Perfect time to release the book!

Each café review is entirely different from the other, some have the journey of the café till date, some have the origin of the name, one also providing information on methods of payment. However one aspect that binds them all together is the personal touch to the narrative and the beautiful pictures.

“An experience remains fresh in our minds when we like the
ambiance of the cafe, quality of the food, the route to the
destination and of course the bill.” True that!

This book had me thinking about all the cafés I had visited and whether I had ever thought of cafés in this unique way. Kudos to Geethica to pick this content.

The writing is simple with tone to provide every tiny observation with adequate details. The words yummy and luscious had me craving for food while reading and writing this review. Google maps is an extensions of Technology in the book… E-book. Glad that it is an E-book.

The E-book is strikingly different in its approach, it provides basic information in an interesting way. The ticket-booking websites, be it airlines, railways or buses should keep it available for its Delhi-travelling clients. Every college going student in Delhi must have an e-copy. Women, who love shopping in Delhi (who doesn’t) should get their copy right away, having a good bite in between shopping encourages more shopping. And anyone who loves café must own a copy.

Does the word “Qahwa” intrigue you? It sure had me mesmerised when I read it. Ah Ha…. Don’t trouble Google, just read the E- book. Another café took me back to my Asterix reading days… which café is it? That’s for you to discover.

Mt favourite is the Tipsy Elephant café . Would love to visit the cafe after reading that the interiors are inspired by Elephants and designed creatively in a modern way. And how could I forget Peach Tea. Order your copy to find out how many cafés in Delhi offers this refreshing boisson.

Questy Musings is musings with a question. Which is your favourite café? Why do you like it? Is it the food, a beverage, a special snack? Is it the name that intrigues you to visit a new café? What draws you to a café repeatedly? A fond memory, a friend who prefers to go there. Think about it.
