Diggin Cafe Delhi Review
Hey Guys, Recently I visited the much loved, college students approved, Diggin Cafe in Anand Lok, Here’s my review of this cozy and antique looking place. Diggin Cafe Delhi Review
Apple Ginger Mint Smoothie: The smoothie is blend to perfection, it is smooth with out any lumps, nor it is very thin. The initial flavors are of ginger and mint, this some how reminded me of sugarcane juice with extra ginger and mint [In a good way, of course]. It leaves a refreshing ginger-mint flavor and isn’t repelling. Although it might not taste great with every dish.. But that shouldn’t stop you from trying this.
Price: Rs 185
Strawberry Cheesecake Shake: This is like a dream come true, literally I’ve always wanted to make a shake out of my cheesecake and THIS is it. They’ve hit the cord right. This is literally like blended cheesecake all you have to do is sip away this awesomeness. Flavors of strawberry [obviously] dominate the drink with a punch of creaminess. This is a must try for people who like cheesecakes and strawberry flavor. The strawberry flavor doesn’t taste artificial [ Thankfully]. Although this might be too sweet for some people.
Price – Rs 165.

Diggin Special Salad: This salad is a mix of apples, beetroot, lettuce, Sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese. The dressing used is Honey, Mint Vinaigrette and Chilli. The Beetroot wasn’t roasted and was my least favorite in the salad. I liked that the vegetables were fresh and crunchy. All over the salad was tasty [minus the beet]
Price: Rs 215
Citrus Chicken Salad: This salad had Chicken, orange, cherry tomatoes and lettuce. I loved how soft and jiucy the chicken was. The dressing used was of orange vinagrette and complimented the overall taste of the salad. The lettuce was fresh and overall it tasted really refreshing.
Price: Rs. 215.
Crispy Zucchini Fries: This is one of the highly recommended dishes at the diggin. Now We’ve all had french fries, this dish is a great break from those. The Zucchini is crispy and soft on the inside. It isn’t very oily either and the dip it comes with is a perfect combo. This is worth the hype and a must try. The quantity might be a lil turn off for some, but this will float your boat in terms of taste and quality.
Price: Rs 185
Cheesy Jalapeno Balls: If by hearing this dish any pre-packed cheesy fry balls come to your mind, I’d suggest let them rest to peace. These are not even close to what you’ve had earlier. I was expecting some pre-packed Jalapeno balls which many restaurants serve [ Yep 😐 ] This my friend has really surprised me in the cheesiest way. The cheese balls are crispy – crunchy on the outside and are filled with cheese n jalapeno on the inside. The cheesy is hot and tasty! I really loved the combo of the dip and cheesy balls. Although the quantity could have been better.
Price: Rs 185
Diggin Coffee: The coffee was strong and intense. The gelato scoop was barely there. The espresso is very strong
bitter for beginners and occasional coffee drinkers. I used nearly 6 sugar packs and it still tasted bitter [ I usually add 1 – 2 tsp of sugar] . This wasn’t my favorite I’d say not a fan of espresso I’d suggest the shakes instead.
Price: Rs 125
Baked Penne Pasta: This is yet another of the “Diggin Favorites” . To begin with the pasta looks delicious but sadly for me , I felt the pasta was way too under cooked to a point that it tasted raw and not so pleasant. The cheese and the sauce were on point. The taste was really nice and overall if the pasta was well cooked I would have enjoyed it alot better.
Price: Rs 325
Fish and Chips: The Fish was crispy on the outside and soft, juicy on the inside. Although most of the fish was way too oily to be edible, I had to skip it and stick to just fries. The fries weren’t very oily and tasted great. The dip provided goes very well with the overall combo.
Price: Rs 425.
Vegetarian Lasagna: The lasagna was cooked properly and tasted great. The only downside was that after a few bites the dish tastes pretty bland. It didn’t have enough cheese and lacked the required taste. It isn’t bad but there wasn’t anything great about it either. This is an optional dish to try, nothing thrilling about it, average I’d say.
Price: Rs 325
Diggin’s Signature Ravioli: The Ravioli was tasty! The pasta was well cooked the stuffing was amazing, a combination on spinach, broccoli & ricotta cheese. A you could barely tell that it had these vegetables in it, which is amazing for people who are picky eaters or don’t like vegetables. You get all the goodness of the vegetables in amazing arrabita sauce which pairs great with the overall dish.
Price: Rs 345.
Note: The garlic bread given isn’t actually the usual soft fluffy bread rather it is more like garlic toast, hard and crispy.
Pesto Pepper : The pizza was thin crust and baked to perfection. It was crispy towards the outer corner, And was sufficient for two. The pesto sauce tasted great with the roasted bell peppers. The sun dried tomatoes added a refreshing taste and were my favorite element, they added a punch of tangy-ness and the mozerella cheese was baked well. The overall taste was spicy and tangy and I’d say a good munch.
Price: Rs 325.
Red Velvet and Tiramisu The Red Velvet Cake was a piece of heaven, it was soft and fluffy. The cream was buttery and smooth. The overall taste was awesome. Although this can be a bit too sweet for some people. BUT in that case Tiramisu might just tickle your sweet tooth. It is the perfect blend of bitter coffee flavor with the sweet, smooth fluffy cream. The balance is just perfect and tastes great!
Price: Red velvet: Rs 165
Tiramisu : Rs 175
Recommendation: The dishes I’d highly recommend are Strawberry shortcake shake, Zucchini Fries, Cheesy Balls, Ravioli, Red Velvet Cake, Tiramisu, Pizza, Chicken Salad!
