Me and my boyfriend were just walking around the streets of Darjeeling and looking for some nice place for the breakfast. The Sonam's kitchen attracked us on a first view - nice and cosy tables and home-made cakes in the window. The food was even better - the lady who served us did the breakfast right behind our backs -... More

Sonam has just the best moka on town. Full stop. Porridge, breakfast sets, pancakes are amazing too. Add mountain view and you'll understand why Sonam's is the place to be in Darjeeling!

Went one morning and saw some letters from people saying that they had been there for breakfast every morning of their trip. I thought that was nice but didn't think it would be me. After breakfast I was so content that I did become another happy customer who returned every morning whilst in Darjeeling. Cozy, friendly and extremely tasty, I... More

This place serves u amazing hashbrowns!! The platter wit tomatoes and omlett/ egg scramble is too good. The chocolate banana pancake is something u just can't miss! Amazing small little place in the darjeeling lanes for a perfect breakfast! Ginger tea is good for tea lovers n also hot chocolate is a good option..

Tasty filling breakfast with thick toast, hash browns and porridge. You can also get brewed coffee if you can't face another cup of tea

Sonam's is close to Chowrasta square, a lovely pedestrian friendly tourist hub in Darjeeling. Breakfast here is a must, the banana nut pancakes are amazing and served in the afternoon too. The coffee is surprisingly good in a tea crazed city! This is not just a restaurant but also a tourist info goldmine. If you take the time to chat... More

I visited this place several times while staying in Darjeeling for 5 days. It is a really lovely place to hit breakfast. You can enjoy the sunrise and sunshine while you enjoy your food or a cup of Chai. You can watch people walking busy and birds hanging out through the windows. Their thick toasts are my favorite, and of... More
