Best spots in Bangalore for breakfasts worth rolling out of bed for

In India’s garden city, ‘good mornings’ come with a grand feast. This could feature anything from ghee-laden dosas and melt-in-the-mouth idlis to cheesy omelettes and indulgent French toasts. Here’s looking at the best spots for breakfast in Bangalore.

Bangalore firmly stands by the adage, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” How else would you explain the throng of darshinis, artisanal coffee shops, and Pinterest-worthy cafes that populate its streets and bylanes? In fact, a quintessential local experience in the city involves lining up outside a hole-in-the-wall as early as 6:00 am for a bite of traditional South Indian fare.

Of late, however, brunches and spreads with global fare have also gathered steam. We’re talking classic English breakfasts, innovative sandwiches, specialty coffees, cold-pressed juices – the whole shebang. Whether you’re popping by for a layover or need a switch up from your usual bread and butter (or cereal) routine – the city’s culinary landscape promises to make the start of your day delicious. Here’s our pick of the best spots.

First established as a local condiments store in 1977, the spot transformed into a bustling breakfast hub. On the menu are melt-in-the-mouth idlis, served with mint, coriander, and coconut chutney. These alone are worth the wait and promise to be unlike any idlis you’ve tried before. However, they also serve up traditional vadas, bisibelebath, and kesari bath. Be sure to head here early or order in. Don’t miss out.

Any breakfast roundup in Bengaluru would be incomplete without a classic, local-approved spot for dosa. That’s where this iconic, vintage restaurant in Bengaluru comes in. Vidyarthi Bhavan offers the most fluffy, golden dosas that are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. The masala rendition comes with potato or sagu filling and towers of stacked-up dosas are a common sight here. The best part? There’s a generous serving of ghee in every bite. To round things out, you could also savour the medu vada, kesari bath, poori sagu, or rava vada. A cup of filter coffee to wash it all down and you’ve got yourself the perfect South Indian breakfast. Be sure to head there early for a seat, especially on the weekends.
