After a long wait and toy train trip we reached Sonam kitchen for lunch at 2PM. We were probably the last customer before restaurent closes. My wife was looking for gluten free lunch and kids wanted continental meal. Food was awesome. I would recommend hash brown Patato with egg, pancake with fruit and south Indian filter coffee.

I will keep it short. We, a group of seven, consulted this website and made sure we don't miss the place. The first thing that struck us was Sonam's rude reception. Didn't give us enough chance to order, rather thrust upon us a few dishes. Furthermore, we were told to finish asap as she was expecting a host of "white... More

We had breakfast at Sonams kitchen. Scrambled egg, veg omelette, toast, hash browns and Darjeeling tea. All delicious and well cooked. Nicely run with friendly staff and a good vibe. Would recommend!

Such amazing breakfast, with real homemade hash browns, pancakes are thick and full of toppings, and delicious coffee. A great place to meet other travelers and have breakfast. Sonam and her staff are all very friendly and I highly recommend this place to others and will keep coming back!

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. Yummy! Highly recommended. It closes... 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.
