Jaipur is a gift that keeps giving. This time, we’re here to gush about the city’s first-of-its-kind book lounge that goes by the name Step Out. On your next road trip, you must spend a lazy afternoon at this cafe-cum-library that comes with a beautiful garden and a killer vegan menu.

What Makes It Awesome

Conceptualised by the owners, who literally took the can of paint and the brush in their hand, Step Out is a space inspired by travel. It’s full of tiny corners that your Instagram will love. The main folks here have done a stellar upcycling job with the decor elements as well. Our favourite zone is the exposed brick library, which stocks a whole bunch of author-signed books thanks to so many writers chilling here around JLF and leaving behind copies of their work.

We’re going to take a moment to tell you that their cafe menu is a pretty compelling reason to drop by as well. Their experiments with the Pizza Paratha, Falafel Burger and Israeli Laffa are particularly intriguing, wouldn’t you agree?

If you’d like to keep your meals non-controversial, they’ve got the basics like salads, soups, sandwiches, Maggi, pasta and more. Oh wait, they’ve got a Parle-G Shake too!

Vegan folks should definitely drop by Step Out because they’re one of the best vegan restaurants in town. We recommend that you try their vegan breakfast that’s served all day from 8.30 am onwards.
