Top 10 Places In Mumbai For A Healthy Breakfast

For almost every Mumbaikar, mornings are all about rushing to work. While it leaves very little time for breakfast, it is a meal that you shouldn’t skip at any cost. And if you want to take a little care of your body, make sure you fill yourself up with some healthy food.

Following The Breakfast Club

Mumbai’s vada pav doubles up as a quick breakfast for many, but that’s not all that the city has to offer. From a simple bun maska to elaborate egg dishes and fancy seaside locations, there is everything for all kinds of foodies. Join us as we check some of the best breakfast places in Mumbai.

1) Suzette

Suzette is known for its light and delicious buckwheat crepes. They are much in demand, so if you are planning to go there for a breakfast, make sure you’re in by 9 AM. Pair it up with some warm croissants and fresh juices for a filling start to the day. The food is obviously the star of the show, but we also love the homely feel that the ambience adds to the cafe.

Where: Bandra, Nariman Point, Powai

2) Hotel Ramashray

Over the years, Hotel Ramashray has somewhat reached an iconic status for dishing out authentic South Indian dishes with extremely prompt service. It’s one of the best breakfast places in Mumbai for an authentic South Indian meal. It is also a favorite breakfast spot for early risers as it opens up as early as 5 am. Their Idli Podi and Neer Dosa along with a cup of filter coffee are enough to fuel you up for the rest of the day. (britespanbuildings)
