Tryst Café

For baked breads and a garden view, drop by this charming café in Neelankarai. Choose to sit outside if the weather is kind, or inside where they even have shelves full of books to browse through. Tuck into their croissant sandwiches — Jalapeno, Egg & Cheese or Tuna. You can even get a side of French fries. There’s also Hash Browns, French Toast with maple syrup and omelettes with olives and feta cheese to choose from.

Gossip Fusion Bistro

This cosy little café with bright yellow sofas and blue walls is a popular joint and known for its Sunday breakfast spread.  For just INR 450, you can choose from a fusion buffet — eggs to order, roast chicken, sausages, hash brown, waffles, pancakes and cinnamon rolls. Yum! Also if you’re a hard core dosa lover, fret not. They have South Indian favourites like idiyappam, pongal, idli, chutney and fitler kaapi too, all part of the spread! Just book in advance because Sundays are usually packed.

Known for their adventurous menus, the peeps at Sitcom sure know how to make food more exciting. The place resembles a US diner, but with popular TV show posters all around  and a screen that actually plays these shows {it is named Sitcom after all}. They have an all-day breakfast menu and if you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love it! Waffles, pancakes and French Toast with flavours like Nutella & Banana, and Strawberry Cheescake. Oh yeah! And you get cut fruits and a drink {latte or cappuccino} along with it. There’s also eggs to order — try the spicy sausage omelette if you like it hot.
