The Caffe is at Janpath, in the middle of Honda showroom and Mc. Donalds.

Just been there today and yes loved the concept and the way its been setup. Interestingly, got to know that they would not just pass the sales enquiries from here to other Tata - Fiat showrooms, but indeed sell them from here too.

Moreover, i could see some people in the showroom really excited about the products and talking / discussing about Fiats with a serious intent to buy them.

Yes, where and how you sell matters a lot and this is where VW had taken the lead.

But still Fiat guys need to spread awareness on the Fiat group companies - probably park a Ferrari outside and pass the word that its Italian Engineering.

This Caffe is a dealership owned by the Oberoi group who have 2 Tata - Fiat dealerships in Delhi and the sales guys here seemed informative and showed enthusism in promoting / selling the brand - FIAT, which is exactly whats needed.

Hail Fiat in India !! i love my Fiat Punto and cant stop cribbing about anything else i am forced to drive in the budget < 11 lacs.

On a lighter note, Fiat has a 7 gear bicycle for display in this Caffe which costs 33,000/- ............. my family said that although its VFM compared to the BMW bicycles but if you buy it people would say why did you buy a FIAT cycle, you should have gone for an ATLAS cycle instead

Wish all the best to Fiat !!

Saw the Caffe today at Janpath. But Alas had got stuck in traffic and got late. So by the time I reached it had closed. But just from outside it spoke of quality and premiumness from all angles. I am sure if this thing comes up in all the major cities Fiat will earn a lot of respect.

From the FIAT press release:
  • FIAT Caffe is an initiative to showcase the 'Italian automotive lifestyle experience' (???) to FIAT owners and enthusiasts.
  • The first FIAT Caffe was openened at Tolstoy Marg in New Delhi.
  • The second Caffe will be launched in Pune. This makes India the only country to have more than 1 Caffe.
  • At the Caffes, they have FIAT cars on display. Also, visitors can take a test drive and browse through FIAT details.
  • They intend to have special events and product displays from time to time.
  • There'll also be a library which will feature books on FIAT’s history, the various sub brands and sister companies.
  • The Caffe's will serve 'Authentic Italian Coffee'. (I don't know how that is different from any other coffee)
  • FIAT will display its merchandise and accessories here.
  • Globally, FIAT has several Caffes to showcase brands like Ferrari, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Maserati.

Here's a pic of the New Delhi Caffe. It sure does look smart:

It is indeed a smart concept with brilliant interiors / Italian way to a good extent.

They have tied up with the Italian Coffee chain in India - Lavazza and they have an inhouse Lavazza outlet.

Does anyone have an idea of where in Pune this is expected to be launched?
I care two hoots about what they offer to eat or drink. I am just glad that I dont have to go to that pathetic Pandit Auto tata dealership to see/ test/ buy a Fiat car. I hope they extend this to A.S.S too

Now, if you wish to get acquainted with Italian car culture without having to disappoint that sweet girl on this Valentine’s Day, Fiat Caffe should be your dream destination. Fiat Caffe is offering couples a chance to celebrate this Valentine’s Day with Lavazza & cookies and a free test drive of the Fiat Linea or Punto 2012.

The guests can enjoy the classic Italian atmosphere while enhancing ones knowledge about their favourite brands. And this is not all! The evening shall be complete with the couple’s portrait gifted to them at the end. The offer at the Fiat Caffe is on till 18th February, 2012.

Now, I am cribbing again. What with my girl having dumped me some time back? *damn

Add to it the fact that in sheer numbers, Delhi NCR has probably the largest number of Fiat Cars. It's just that they are not very visible because of the fact that even this large number is a small percentage of the mammoth car population out here.

Caught a glimpse of the end portion of SVP's show on TV today afternoon, and it looked like it was shot at a Fiat Caffe. Did anyone else see it?

Siddharth, did you just walk in to the Fiat Caffé and cut the cake?

Seriously you need to share with us the procedure to be followed to celebrate one's birthday at Fiat Caffé so that FIATians can celebrate their birthday the way you did.

It is not functional yet. I visited it sometime back, met the security guards over there, they had no idea of the inauguration date. It looks fantastic from both outside and inside though.

It is situated on North Main Road between Lane 5 and 6 ,opposite Celio clothing showroom in Koregaon Park.
