After a long three months of standard Indian fare, Sonam's was a truly wonderful find. Her breakfast sets are killer - awesome hash browns seasoned with just the right amount of rosemary, nice thick slices of hearty toast, top-notch fried tomatoes, eggs, and local cheese. There are plenty of other things on the breakfast menu, but these kept me happy... More

Sonam's kitchen has by far the best breakfast in Darjeeling, not to mention inspired Nepali and Indian dishes as well. She also has REAL organic COFFEE, from south India. Sonam and her husband are a cute couple and full of great information about the region. Oh and if you're looking for a place to stay, they also rent out extra... More

Yummy thick slices of brown bread, sliced tomatoes and fried eggs is my favourite! The food is admittedly oily (what ISN'T in India) and you never get your food out together (because there's only 1 person in the little kitchen) but this is why I keep coming back to Sonam's Kitchen. Food at home is never served together, you're always... More

After reading lonely planet reviews. I landed here for breakfast. The oilest food one can eat. Guess people who have reviewed highly have been missing good food for a long time. Dissapointing!

Delicious hash browns, vegetable omelettes and fried tomatoes. While breakfast is cooking we plan our day and contemplate where we will travel next looking at the library Lonely Planet, asking other travellers in the cosy cafe where they have been and getting advice from Sonam and Puram. By the time we are drinking coffee, we are sharing stories of our... More

Sonam,the owner was very warm and homely. We asked about the dishes, and she explained about all and how it was prepared. All the recipes were her own creations by trial to perfection by her own family members. The food was cooked by herself and her husband and her daughters.

I'm still dreaming about their hashbrowns and pancakes: the breakfast was truly delicious and their hot milk with honey is perfect to heat up in cold Darjeeling.

I stopped here for breakfast, having a cooked English style breakfast with the biggest wedges of brown toast ever washed down with a huge pot of tea. After been torn between the cooked breakfast and French toast I returned the following day to sample the French toast. This was equally as good with perfectly symmetrical banana, nuts, coconut and honey... More
