Who doesn’t remember the magical world of Harry Potter. The universe where everything is possible, white snow owls fly in and out of windows to bring you your post, white snow falls slowly to make the castle look stunning and there is magic in the air. How envious were we of the students who got to attend Hogwarts, the school of witchcraft and wizardry.

Much like the sorting hat we’ll never put on our head or the letter we’ll never receive in mail, Hogsmeade village and their bars are places we’ll never get to visit in real life, or will we? Head to The Hogwarts Kafe in Ashok Vihar, Delhi and enjoy being transported to the world of Harry Potter.

The cafe has been designed to replicate what your typical bar in the Hogsmeade village would look like. Dark cave like ambience, wooden rustic furniture and BUTTER BEER!! How have we longed to taste the smooth drink that Harry, Ron and Hermione drank so often. And at this cafe you can have it all and a lot more.

To spruce up the already engaging experience, the cafe also has a ton of knick-knacks that will remind you of the magical world instantly. The caged owls, sorting hats, ghosts and dementors on the wall and adorable elves planted here and there, are only few of the amazing things you will find here.

And, to make us fall harder in love with them, The Hogwarts Kafe serves some of the most amazing grub you’ll find in the city. Their dishes come decked in adorable and quirky platters which resemble, the cauldrons, pots, stone plates and a ton of other cutesy stuff.

Don’t let the cuteness fool you into thinking that it is all show and no taste, believe me, the food here is as awesome as the decor and the presentation.

Do try the necessary butterbeer and to complement it order yourself a Monster meat lover sandwich, Spider web nachos,snitch ball with keema and ghost rider chicken wings with cheese dip.

You should also try the cheese challenging non veg burgers, the sheer quantity and beauty of the dish will blow you away!

And once you’ve placed your order get busy clicking pictures with the robes, the wands and the hat props.

So give yourself a much needed break, wake the child inside you and eat to your heart’s content because even if you didn’t get the letter or cannot find the school, the cafe will make sure you get to live the fantasy.
