Awesome place to have breakfast!

Its a bit tricky to find but GPS will take you there eventually. A small cosy place with friendly staff. I went there with my family around 11am to have brunch. The breakfast menu is pretty exhaustive is the food is extremely good. We had pancakes, sandwiches and a pot of coffee along with toast... read more

We turned up here for lunch and were initially disappointed that they didn't start serving the main dishes until 5:30 but then took a peek at the plates of the diners at another table and decided to try the set breakfast option. We were not disappointed! The toasted bread was the best bread we have had in 5 months travelling... More

After realising french toast is at worst not too bad, I've had it for breakfast most days in India. Sonam's is by far the best I've had, the thick bread and sesame seeds being the real clinchers. Sonam herself is a great host and the service was quick and friendly every time I came back for my daily visit.

If you happen to be in darjeeling, don't forget to visit this place. Very nominal charges for the meals. The eggs, omlette and what not. You simply can't miss. Besides, it's a joy to eat at such small cozy places all by your friends or love(couple). Go carefree and enjoy your well spent time while having some quick appetizers.

What can I say about Sonam's? I spent a month working with street children in Darjeeling, and starting the day with Sonam's perfectly cooked eggs and fantastic filter coffee was the fuel that powered me through the experience. Sitting down to eat at Sonam's is like going to visit a well-loved friend. The homely atmosphere and consistently excellent food are... More

Easy to locate, friendly staff, amazing food and affordable price. Had ordered chocolate pancakes and set breakfast consisting of hash browns, toast, eggs and cheese. It was really fresh and delicious. Coffee was amazing and so was the hot chocolate. Perfect place to get some real good English breakfast.

Great little place with good service, good food and great ginger tea. Excellent place to meet and chat to fellow travelers as you often have to share tables. I ate breakfast here everyday of my stay as did many others I met.
