Deliciousness at its best

First thing first.the service is not slow. If you're planning to come here to eat, remember that you need to give them enough time to prepare your food. They do not keep ready food and prepares everything on order basis. While the food is being prepared, you can grab a book or just keep chatting... read more

You order, and it is prepared, so talk, read a book and put away your smart phone. Lovely thick slices of bread, and Sonam is a lovely hostess. I also saw her recollecting a diner who had come some 3 years previous.

Came here for breakfast, the porridge with banana and nuts was tasty, and the toast is really fresh and huge! Good value for money. Service was a bit of a let down as it took half an hour for our order to be taken in a nearly empty place and another half hour for our food to arrive, however it... More

We went for breakfast there. This place has added a new big area with glass walls. But we wanted to sit at the old shop. Time for serving was little bit long but we forgot that after eating heavy breakfast. Food was awesome. The lady (Sonam) was very friendly. We will visit there again in future.

I´ve been here with my mum and we ordered the plate with hashbrown (not the disgusting convenience food, no: a handmade, fresh one), tomatoes (beautiful taste, i guess they caramalize it), toast (two huge slices, golden roasted with a lot of butter - it´s like toast heaven) and the perfect scrambled egg! We also had French Toast, which is definitely... More

We were in Darjeeling for 4 days and ate here every day, often twice a day! There was always a friendly face to greet you and the food was absolutely delicious! We were lucky enough to try the set dinner, and it was one of the best we had in our time in India and Nepal. You must eat here... More

We stayed the night at Magnolia, which is where Sonam's Kitchen is located. Since there was a sign saying Best Coffee in Darjeeling, we thought of trying it out. I don't know about the coffee but the breakfast was really the best we'd had on our trip ! The French Toast was to die for and so were the fluffy... More

A great place to start your day with an awesome breakfast. If you ever visit Darjeeling make sure that you have your breakfast at least once at Sonam's Kitchen. You'll be delighted with amazing combos. My personal favourite is the tomatoes and french toast. Bon Appetit!!!

Delicious food! I wish id discovered this place at the start of our trip in Darjeeling. A clean spot with tasty food (I recommend the toast, coffee and tomatoes)! A little slow to serve however worth the wait for sure
