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.

If any one wants to have seriously delicious,filling and yummy English breakfast, come down to Sonam's Kitchen. This lady really knows how to make a happy breakfast meal. I have been to Keventers and Glenery's but i can bet Sonam's Kitchen can give run to their money.

Discovered this place while walking on the Mall Road. Good Ambience and serves nice home brewed coffee which is little difficult to get in Darjeeling

This small eatery located on the Zakir Hussain Marg serves breakfast in the first half of the day and dinner during evening. The hashbrowns, brown breads etc are quite decent. Although I personally liked Tom and Jerry, the breakfast place on the other side of the road somewhat better.

Came here off glowing trip advise reviews and it was definitely worth it. After the first visit me returned every subsequent day until we left. The breakfasts are so big and so tasty. The bread is massive, the hash browns gorgeous and the thickest pancake I've had for a while. The price is very reasonable and the tea is warming.... More

You absolutely have to go here for breakfast. My food haven. I came here almost every day during my stay. Be it the porridge , pancakes or the hash browns. She is also kind and friendly. Good food and a smiling face makes your mornings perfect. One of the places I miss the most in Darjeeling.
