Have your heard about the Floatel hotel in Kolkata that is located on the banks of the Hooghly river? The hotel has two sections-one portion on the bank, while the other floating on the river water—and this portion houses a restaurant called The Bridge. Yes, The Bridge is a floating restaurant with open seating and a splendid view of the Hooghly (including the Howrah Bridge). The restaurant’s building looks like a cruise ship and its staff dressed as naval officers. The breakfast experience on this ship-like restaurant overseeing the Hooghly is unmatchable and if you are in Kolkata, then visiting the restaurant for an early morning meal is highly recommended. For breakfast, you can select dishes from their “Always There” menu. Some hot sellers for the breakfast include grilled sandwiches, burgers, classic French fries and potato wedges. To drain them down your throat, you can order for a coffee/tea or a shake or even a glass of wine (who’s judging?)! Average cost for two around Rs.1500/-.

3. Hauz Khas Social, DelhiHauz Khas

 Hauz Khas in Delhi is famous for various reasons, such as the Hauz Khas lake, the tomb of Firuz Shah (a Tughlaq dynasty ruler), a mosque and many other such structures. However, the latest development in the area is the innumerable restaurants that have cropped up in the Hauz Khas village area, offering scenic views to their visiting. One such restaurant that’s quite famous, especially for its breakfast trays, is the Hauz Khas Social. A rough and rudimentary brick-look ambience makes the place much appealing. To add to the ambience is the Hauz Khas lake that’s just adjacent to the restaurant. Sitting at the restaurant and having breakfast while overlooking the lake in the morning hours is pure bliss. We recommend having the Hangover Breakfast tray if you prefer continental or the Dhingra’s Punjabi Breakfast tray if you are a core North Indian and love paranthas and aam ka achaar! Average cost for two around Rs. 1500/-.

4. Smoke House Deli, Delhi

Another excellent restaurant from Hauz Khas Village, Smoke House Deli oozes of class. Niche interiors, excellent location, attractively-priced menu and finger-licking food. All this makes for an explosive combination. Although all dishes served by Smoke House are awesome, we suggest you try their smoked pimento and jalapeno or four cheese fluffy omelette for breakfast. Also, try their cream cheese and herbs bagel. Average cost for two at Smoke House Deli around Rs. 1500/-.

5. Roots-Café in the Park, GurgaonRoots

Finding a good breakfast joint in Gurgaon is a difficult task. Gurgaon is friendlier for the night birds partying through the graveyard shift. However, Roots Café located in Rajiv Gandhi Renewable Energy Park, Leisure Valley is an exception. The all-day breakfast menu at the café is quite interesting and decently priced and the gravel-floor outdoor seating provides a cosy feel. There is indoor seating too in a shack-type ambience, if you prefer. Don’t expect a fine dine environment. It’s just a simple joint to chill out with friends or family. From the menu, do try the Railway Masala Omelette sandwich and poha. The Willingdon Club’s Kejriwal Sandwich is also an interesting option. Go for a French Press Coffee to compliment your meal and you won’t be disappointed at all! Also, there is a play area with some swings and slides and solar energy driven small cars for the kids to enjoy. A breakfast affair at Roots should set you back by around Rs. 600/- for two.

Another outlet that’s crowded the entire day, starting from morning onwards is Taaza Thindi in Jaynagar.

There’s no particular seating area at the outlet and although you would expect the place to be dirty because of the footfall, it is, on the contrary, one of the cleanest eatery in Bangalore.

Famous for its breakfast, many patrons visit this for its fluffiest and softest idlis, chow chow bhath, kesari bhath, and a strong coffee to wake them up!
