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.

Well folks, many of you know the other place for breakfast. The ones where you get a greasy plate of bacon, sausages, and eggs. Well, this one does not serve the bacon and sausages, but manages to be, I dare, say as good, if not a tad better! We had gone there, three of us, for a late late breakfast.... More

If you are looking for a proper English Breakfast (fried eggs, massive hashbrown, fried tomatoes etc) then look no further. This was the best breakfast I had in India. Get the full breakfast as it will fill you up until dinner (huge pieces of toast as well) and if you can handle it, get the chocolate, nut and banana pancake!... More

We came here for breakfast and weren't disappointed. Having heard the pancakes were great we had to try them and they were delicious and light despite the enormous size of them! The hash browns are also good, think American style. All topped off with a pot of Darjeeling tea and it was a winner. Friendly staff too!

Enormous serves here. Loved the pancakes and the hash browns - which were 4 inches across and so tasty. The brewed coffee was terrific too.

We came here based on the Lonely Planet recommendation and were not disappointed. The brown bread was the best we had in 30 days in India. The hash browns were really tastes too. My husband had s veg omelette which he said was delicious. Also the place is clean and cosy. We could see the food being prepared. It is... More

We heard a lot about Sonam's kitchen so we searched for a long time until we found it. Unfortunately, the good reviews we heard had given us high expectations, and we were disappointed to find that the food was incredibly average and really nothing special. The pancake I got was topped with bananas, raisins, nuts, honey and coconut and tasted... More
