Best toast in india!

Visited Sonam's twice for breakfast while staying in Darjeeling- I had to go back for more toast! Friendly service and good coffee too.

I went here for breakfast, i had chocolate pancake with nuts and a hash brown. The food that this place provides is very good, the cook clearly cares for the quality, and is very friendly. I'll visit this place whenever i go to Darjeeling.

I got a banana honey porridge and there was almost no milk and it was tepid. As I walked quite some time to find this place and according to the excellent rating, I was then disappointed!
