Must visit for breakfast!

This is the place to have the best breakfast in Darjeeling. We visited during the off-season, so the place was not at all crowded. Had fresh tea along with sandwiches and ohh boy, that felt heavenly!

The best breakfast in town, by a country mile. Sonam didi is funny, lovely and warm; her husband and staff are all equally delightful. She's a great guide on Darjeeling and the region, on where to go, and on the history of the place. But more than anything else, the coffee and food is first-class. To give an indication of... More

Great place for breakfast in Darjeeling. Very friendly people who are anxious to please. Everything from hash browns to French toast to Darjeeling tea or coffee. We ate their several times and will go back again on our next trip to darjeeling.

It's a short walk up from Chowrasta, past the pony stable, veg market and up the hill a little (a 5 minute walk at the most) The food is veg, the restaurants clean and the... More

First thing first.the service is not slow. If you're planning to come here to eat, remember that you need to give them enough time to prepare your food. They do not keep ready food and prepares everything on order basis. While the food is being prepared, you can grab a book or just keep chatting with others around. It is... More

You order, and it is prepared, so talk, read a book and put away your smart phone. Lovely thick slices of bread, and Sonam is a lovely hostess. I also saw her recollecting a diner who had come some 3 years previous.
