Our abilities, or disabilities, may not make us who we are, but it sure does affect how people treat us. People are becoming more and more aware of what they can do to assist someone who normally has difficulty in being understood. In an effort to make safe spaces for those with special needs, these two amazing cafes in Delhi have been catering to those with hearing and speech disability and are the most heartwarming and positive spaces to be at even otherwise.

This place in Satya Niketan has become quite popular as the food is amazing, and the service quick. This place is completely run by the specially abled, and you do get to learn how to explain orders in the sign language. They’ve been serving all your favourite comfort continental foods. They have a branch in Koramangala in Bangalore and have recently started operations in Hudson Lane too. Their Brownie Sizzler is what people keep coming back for.

This place was started by this lady who has siblings with hearing disability. She wanted to have a space where the needs of the deaf and dumb could be heard too. They have weekly sign language classes here, and a lot of events that work in the sensitisation of people towards those with a special need. They serve continental food here too. Their breakfast platter and their pizza are what you must order for sure. Their Mushroom Khurchan Filos are just out of this world.
