Between snoozing our alarms one too many times and desperately trying to cut our travel time to the office by half, our mornings with a coffee and on a good day, some toast. We’ve been told, time and time again, that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but who cares, right? Who’s got the time? Well, for the days that you’ve managed to find the time to indulge in a delicious and hearty breakfast, here are some absolute must visits and we promise they will be worth every minute that you didn’t snooze.
There isn’t a person we’ve spoken to that has anything less that amazing to say about this one. The Yoga House is the perfect way to kick start your day on a deliciously healthy note. With fresh, organic ingredients and a menu that exudes healthy and fit, this quirky joint must most definitely be on your breakfast check-list. Try their Poha, which takes a twist on the basic Maharashtrian dish that we know and love, or go for their least healthy but absolutely divine signature hash browns.

Sequel Bistro & Juice Bar

All the ingredients they use are organic certified and have been sourced from their origins, making everything you devour that much more delicious.

We’re all familiar with this one and even though they’ve been around long enough, we can’t seem to get over how much we love their breakfast. Step into any of the Indigo Delis and you are guaranteed to leave feeling 100% satisfied and craving to go back for more. With their fresh juices and fluffy pancakes, what else do you need to start your day with all smiles? Their Eggs Benedict, Florentine and Royale coupled with their special grated hash browns are all utterly sinful.
Where: Multiple outlets
When: 9:00am – 12:30am
When you’re craving a delightful and filling South Indian meal to begin your stressful and speedy day, there is nowhere like Ramashray in the heart of Matunga. With great service and even better dishes, this is just the place to fuel up. It opens at 5:00am (yes, you heard that right) and serves the yummiest Mysore Dosas and a variety of crispy, yet cottony soft Medu Vadas to cater to every mood.
Where: Matunga, Mumbai
When: 5:00am – 9:30pm
An institution in Mumbai, Café Modegar is not only a must-visit for its charming and energetic vibe and brilliant wall art, but also for its deliciously special breakfast spread. An American style breakfast with buttered toast, pork sausages, your choice of eggs, fries, juice and if Mondy’s makes you want to play hooky (which we’re pretty certain it will), then order a chilled beer to go with it!
Where: Colaba, Mumbai
When: 7:30am – 11:30pm
