Delhi’s green community can be found at Greenr a casual café with an intentional slow and clean food concept, full of vibrant, dynamic souls who want to live consciously and share this lifestyle with others.
Greenr is a place to hang out for hours, from a brunch smoothie bowl to dinner pasta and all sorts of healthy snacks in between. Located all across Delhi with spots in Gurgaon, Greater Kailash, and Vasant Vihar, there is a Greenr waiting to be your neighborhood spot.
From the kitchen comes California-inspired plant-based treats such as smoothie bowls, earth bowls, salads, rolls, pizzas, burgers, and pasta. Every dish is Instagram-worthy in plating and taste.
It appears that every time I go, I get the psychedelic smoothie bowl, teriyaki tofu salad with wasabi peas, the beetball spaghetti, the shroom ball pizza with truffle, and tiramisu. That was until they launched some new menu items, including the saffron avocado broccoli risotto, that had me drooling and returning twice in the same week.
For starters, the baja black bean nachos made of corn and ragi served with guacamole and Mexican vegan cheese is always snapped up way before it starts getting soggy.
If you’re popping by the newest Greenr location in Greater Kailash, ask for their new product: Heypache.
Also known as tepache, a refreshing fermented pineapple drink, I was raving about this as the best thing since kombucha for weeks.
To be fair, Greenr’s homemade ginger ale, which can be found brewing in a nice cozy spot in each location, is a strong second contender.

Greenr doesn’t just appeal to people who eat vegetarian or subscribe to a sustainable lifestyle.
I’m not vegan, and I count Greenr as among my favorite places in Delhi to chill whenever I have time so much that I’ve made friends with the waiters.
When one of them delivered food to my doorstep during the lockdown, both of our faces lit up when we discovered who it was! Greenr is a place to find old and new friends through food and conversation. Strike up a chat with one of the owners, who’s in front of the house in one location or the other most of the time, and find
out how they’ve conceptualized the menu with a laser-sharp focus on balancing fusion flavors, sourced the clay plates from local craftsmen, and collaborated with artists to put up wall designs.
Follow them on Instagram for workshops and events, and feel free to bring your pet along to their locations!
