We heard a lot about Sonam's kitchen so we searched for a long time until we found it.

once I found this place, I went back pretty much every morning. Plenty of cosy seating, nice coffee and great food. Get the hash brown with some roast tomatoes and thick cut toast :)

Best place in Darjeeling for freshly made pancakes. The coffee is good too. A morning walk to work up your appetite followed by brunch at this joint gets your day going.

The Hashbrowns are so incredible!! Can't recommend enough. Tiny place put worth it! We enjoyed the cake type pancakes. You may want to share if you get eggs and pancakes. Very friendly staff. They cook pasta dishes in peak season.

The staff was excellent as well as the chocolate banana pancakes. Seems to be some of the best breakfast and coffee in the area.
