“All happiness depends on leisurely breakfast.” Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and if you’re looking for some good places, we recommend you to try out these cafes and coffee shops:
Deli Akuj is a tiny, relatively modest cafe located a few minutes away from Sunrise Bank, Ghairidhara. Once you try their freshly brewed Italian Illy coffee and scrumptious breakfast, you’ll understand why it’s earned a reputation as a must-visit place for locals as well as expats.
As you enter you are welcomed with a delicious aroma of coffee and freshly baked bread.
The decor is minimal and bright inspired by the Parisian theme. The indoor plants adds accent and intimacy to the place.
The classic eggs benedict is elevated with crispy bacon and a spicy hollandaise sauce. The cafe uses its home-bread hence the taste is fresh and delectable.
The Benedict is served with small potato wedges, salad, fresh fruits (sprinkled with sesame seeds) topped with herbs and greens. It is definitely a good choice if you are looking for a wholesome and filling breakfast.
Amidst the scenic backdrop of hills and forest, Kathmandu Coffee is a breakfast haven nestled in Bhaisepati.
The brightly lit cafe boasts ample of tables for patrons to read, converse, or catch up on work. It has a homely feel to it with cosy seatings and friendly staff. The artworks on the walls give the space a colourful touch to the place.
Usually, the café is buzzing with people throughout the day and offers a wide menu that covers all palates. Also, the chef is very generous when it comes to the portion size of the food.
The specialty dish resembles a burger. However, it has a spinach filling between two hash brown patties. The grilled mushrooms on the side perfectly complement the potatoes. The dish is crispy to the core.
The fresh breakfast burrito is worth waking up to as it’s packed with flavour and nutrients. With juicy meaty filling combined with egg and spinach, this dish definitely takes the spotlight.
Tucked in an alley of Jhamsikhel, Coffee Chain is a hidden gem; it’s a crowd-pleasingly delicious spot.
The best part about the coffee shop is its commitment to promoting healthy lifestyle and sustainability. It’s a sanctuary for bicycling enthusiasts and bagel lovers.
The space is more like a gallery and an interactive workspace; it is decorated with metal pipes and cycle gears. The menu is kept small and the cafe focuses on quality over quantity.
Also, customers who bring their own bike get discount up to 10 per cent at the establishment.
WHAT TO ORDER
Bagel breakfast set
In this English breakfast set of beans, sausages and crisp bacon the bread is replaced with bagel making it a healthier choice.
Bacon and Cheese Bagel
The New York style bacon and cheese bagel spells out deliciousness. It has the perfect composition of gooey cheese and juicy bacon.
Places Restaurant and Bar
Places is a healthy-eating joint with plenty of ‘free-from’ options such as dairy, meat, gluten, additives and chemicals– but definitely, not the taste. The menu boasts organic dishes ranging from light snacks to a heavy meal. The cuisine is Asian, Middle Eastern, Mexican and Italian fusion inspired.
Situated at Saath Ghumti Marg in Thamel, the restaurant has a distinctive appeal with low seating, dim lights and a whole lot of colourful graffitis. The atmosphere is relaxed. Despite the restaurant being packed at most times, the staffs are really friendly and attentive.
Vegan pancake with fruit salad
The vegan pancake is simply delicious, light and surprisingly very fluffy. The strawberry jam and homemade almond and coconut jam spread perfectly complementing the pancake.
Cauliflower steak with mushroom gravy
Rich with flavours of spices and herbs, the mushroom gravy lends a creamy texture to the crunchy cauliflower steak. It is indeed an extremely healthy and fulfilling meal.
