Pancakes, Bagels, Ham & Eggs: All-Day Breakfasts We Love

    Ten-Second Takeaway

    Breakfast pizza, waffles, pancakes, ham and eggs – here’s where we go for breakfast, any time of the day.

    Waterside Café

    You’ll never a think a sandwich is boring after biting into one of these beauties. Enjoy a gourmet breakfast sandwiches in a lavish setting overlooking the pool at the Waterside Café. smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel, tuna sandwich or a classic BLT each come for INR 775+ but we promise you, it’s the freshest sandwich filled with the most quality ingredients you’ll get in the city.

    Terminal_11

    Terminal 11

    Salt Lake, Kolkata

    As if we need even more reason to love Terminal 11 {huge shout out to their open mic and live Music nights!}, their all-day breakfast is a cherry on the cake. Their portions are big enough for the gluts that we are – we’re talking triple decker sandwiches and bacon in their English breakfast {which come with eggs, fries and grilled tomatoes!}. What’s awesome? You can spend hours here by yourself with a book in hand, sipping on coffee and making your way through your eggs on toast and no one will bother you.

    Whistling Kettle

    Get a taste of Darjeeling’s famous Keventer’s breakfast platters {we’re talking sausages, bacon, ham, salami – the works!} at Whistling Kettle. If the pork overload doesn’t tempt you, the Nathmulls special teas will. This quaint café with its wooden feel and cosy interiors makes for a perfect breakfast ‘any time of the day’ spot.

    Courting Coffees

    Courting Coffees

    Salt Lake, Kolkata

    Courting Coffees makes our list of favourite haunts for breakfast not just for their ‘build your own sandwiches’ but mostly for their intensely power-packed smoothies and protein shakes. Thick, filling and protein-filled, one glass will keep you going the whole day. They get bonus points for being healthy {which means you can go any day and not just on cheat day!}.

    We love the peanut butter banana shake and the green smoothie {yup, it looks just like the ones on the Instagram health accounts!}.

    Biker’s Café

    Bikers is synonymous with all-day breakfast in Kolkata – they have Breakfast Pizza – how can we not love them? The pizza comes laden with bits of crispy bacon and fried eggs and is absolute breakfast goals. We love how they take international breakfast dishes and add a ‘Biker’s twist’ to them. We also love the Samui Benedict {eggs benedict cooked Thai style!} and the full-throttle American Platter. Beware: the portions are giant, you may want to share!

    Baker’s Nest

    Baker's Nest

    Salt Lake, Kolkata

    Salt Lake’s newest café, Baker’s Nests list of pancakes has us drooling. With one-of-a-kind options in the city {Chicken or Prawn and Cheese Pancakes and Mango Pancakes included!}, they do both sweet and savoury options. What’s awesome? The pancakes are eggless and they even have gluten-free options on their menu. The pancakes start at just INR 80 – who said good food had to burn a hole in your pocket.

    Plate-de-Poultry

    Plate De Poultry

    Lake Market, Kolkata

    Eggs have never been this egg-citing. Ditch the boring cheese omelette, Plate-de-Poultry does interesting and never-seen-before omelettes that tastes sinfully good. If the Seafood Omelette and Mutton Keema omelette aren’t enough to get you egg-static, maybe the Liver Masala Omelette will? Carnivores and eggatarians, we found your paradise.

    Blue Sky Cafe

    Blue Sky Cafe

    New Market, Kolkata

    The only place that believes that burgers are an acceptable breakfast food, Blue Sky is synonymous with breakfasts in Kolkata. We love the loaded sandwiches {chicken keema sandwiches all the way!} and the Chilli CHeese Garlic Toast. This classic joint also does over 20 kinds of eggs {we’re talking Masala Chicken Cheese Omelettes!} and 10 kinds of pancakes {did we hear Peanut Butter Banana Honey?}, and breakfast items start at just INR 35!
