Most of us just about manage a quick bite. However, if you are looking for breakfast joints in the city, you will not be disappointed!

From French toast to baked beans, waffles, croissants or pan cakes, open sandwiches to puri bhaaji, stuffed paranthas and chana batura our kitchen starts churns out everything from as early at 10 am.” If you are looking for a light breakfast of steamy, fluffy idlis, crispy vadas and dosas, then Saravana Bhavan, again in Connaught Place, is your best bet. “Starting at 8 am, we serve freshly made idlis, vadas, dosas, idiyappam and appams. Being in the heart of the city, we get clientele from across NCR including office goers, students and tourists,” says manager, Saravana Bhavan.
