Sonam's is well known by all foreigners...the auntie there always gives great service with a smile and she cooks delicious food! I love Sonam's Kitchen because it has a great view, the price is fair, nice atmosphere, the food is good, and then I feel as though I'm coming here for my mom's cooking! Here, you get that homey feeling!!

Probably the Best place for having breakfast. You can try the Masala Tea (Pure coffee is also available). I don't wanna write reviews for each items they have. But wanna say you should go there and try by your own. I am sure you wont be disappointed.

Such a cute little place with great breakfast options, it can take a while but it's worth it since they prepare everything on spot when you order. Really good porridge, nice and tasty (first in India actually) coffee! Wasn't too impressed by the pancakes though, a bit bland and soggy. Been here almost everyday for breakkie since we arrived in... More

By far the best breakfast in Darjeeling and perhaps in the whole of northern India! If you're looking for coffee that isn't Nescafe then Sonam's will not disappoint. Plus the french toast is delicious! Besides an amazing breakfast they also gave us a lot of valuable information on other places to visit in the area. Thanks again Sonam - from... More

I visited Darjeeling with my girlfriend this summer, and took her to Sonam's for one of her great breakfasts. We both loved the breakfast combo with eggs, hashbrowns, thick toast, fried tomatoes, and cheese! The pot of ginger lemon honey was a hit each time as well. Sonam remembered me from my last visit there two years ago, as well,... More

I've been eating at Sonam's Kitchen for every day since coming to Darjeeling. There is simply no better coffee in town, and I believe Sonam serves the best porridge I've ever had. Her set breakfasts are also great, with huge, tasty hash-browns, eggs and perfectly fried tomatoes. And then there's the toast... chunky pieces of bread, perfectly toasted on the... More

First came to Sonam's in 2006 and ate there three times a day for two weeks and have returned to find it just as great. They have now expanded across the street to a lovely enclosed space with views so no one will be left waiting long with the original small kitchen and cafe also still operating. This place truly...

After a long three months of standard Indian fare, Sonam's was a truly wonderful find. Her breakfast sets are killer - awesome hash browns seasoned with just the right amount of rosemary, nice thick slices of hearty toast, top-notch fried tomatoes, eggs, and local cheese. There are plenty of other things on the breakfast menu, but these kept me happy... More
