Stayed at the hotel nextdoor for a few nights before we visited Sikkim. Sonam's food is the best and we couldn't have gone without Puran's advice and arrangements before heading to Sikkim. Still one the most magical experiences for us ever. Thanks Sonam and Puran! Grts. Tom& Vero

Sonam, the owner, seems friendly but is a little strange and chases your money. One Day Coffee was 40 rupees nett 50 without a reason. So a little expensive and less big portions.

Their porridge is wholesome and scrumptious. Many of the people in my hotel ate every meal at this place.

From the first moment you walk into Sonam's Kitchen, the wooden ceiling and walls will make you feel at home. As written in travelers' notes all over the place, Sonam is a great host and also helped us with some beginners' orientation questions.

I was recommended this place and while I didn't eat there, I can say the coffee is great. A bit off the beaten track but worth finding just for the coffee

A friendly restaurant with the best toast in India! Reasonably priced with good set menus for breakfast. Definitely a top pick for breakfast. They also have a lazy but friendly dog, Lola.
