Sonam's Kitchen is a small restaurant on Dr Zakir Hussain road, not far from Chowrasta. Sonam, her husband and staff are lovely hosts and their hashbrowns are the best western style breakfast east of the Indus. This small place has been a long time favourite of western tourists. Bengali and Hindustani tourists are recently also starting to discover it.

Sonam's kitchen is a bit difficult to find but there is no disappointment once you find it. The coffee is exotic and so is the cheese tomato omelette. A must try!

I could not recommend this place anymore highly, by far the best place in Darjeeling for breakfast! Had breakfast here nearly everyday at the beginning of my stay. The staff are so friendly and service is excellent, but do take into consideration this is a vegetarian restaurant! I would recommend one of the set breakfasts (the most delicious fried tomatoes!)...

We ate here three mornings in a row for breakfast and it was absolutely top quality. The best possible breakfast you could ask for when you intend to spend the day walking around the mountains. Coffee was delicious and prices were very reasonable. Not only was the food excellent but Sonam the owner was also kind enough to help me... More

I visited this place for breakfast in December 2013 not 2014. We read some great reviews on trip advisor were not disappointed with the food. Only one improvement i would recommend is catering for vegetarians better and being open to omitting egg from if requested. I had to request profusely for this favour but I was very happy with the...

If you're looking for a good breakfast, this is the place to go in Darjeeling. The food is as delicious as affordable but more than that, you will come back for the kindness and the good advices of Sonam and her husband. Definitely one of the highlights of my stay in Darjeeling.
