Breakfast people, rejoice! We bring you a list of the Mumbai‘s best breakfast joints – whether you are craving poha and cutting chai, idli and filter coffee, akuri, bagels or eggs benedict. Start your day right with these six delicious Mumbai eateries.

Prakash Shakahari Upahaar Kendra

If a traditional Maharashtrian breakfast is what you are looking for, then Prakash at Dadar is where you should be headed. From fresh vada pav to wholesome poha, this modest eatery offers the best of Maharashtrian comfort and fast food cuisine under a single roof, with super fast service and cheap rates. The batata vada is a culinary hit among frequent patrons.

This eatery in Colaba, like the city’s many other Irani cafes, has been feeding hundreds of Mumbaikars hearty breakfasts for almost a century. Irani chai paired with bun maska (buttered bread rolls), or akuri (Iranian traditional scrambled eggs) on toast will give you the pick-me-up you desperately need on that Monday morning. For those seeking a hearty, heavy breakfast then the keema pav is lip-smackingly delicious.

If you need nothing short of a cup of hot coffee to wake up, then the city’s many South Indian restaurants will come to your rescue. Café Madras in Matunga has been the city’s favourite joint to grab dosas, idlis and vadas for more than 75 years. There are few better ways to start your morning in this city than by digging into a fresh, hot and crispy masala dosa at Café Madras.

Colaba Social

Breakfast at one of the city’s many social outlets will leave you smiling throughout the day. Hearty and delicious food at reasonable prices, paired with the dynamic atmosphere at Colaba Social, makes it one of the city’s best breakfast experiences. Try the Iroon Junglee Poro (a heavy Irani-style omelette paired with sweet buns) for a relatively light yet wholesome meal. If you’re seeking something a little heavier, they offer several breakfast trays offering everything from buttered-up paranthas to bacon and eggs, served with coffee or tea. If this isn’t appealing enough, they also serve breakfast food until 7pm – so go ahead, feast on pancakes for lunch like you’ve always wanted to!

The Breakfast Sandwich at Indigo Deli is what you need for days that seem overwhelming or just too long. With bacon, sausage, emmental cheese, grilled onion and fried egg on a bagel, this delicious sandwich paired with their French-press coffee is nothing short of perfect. If you are looking for something lighter, their other offerings are also worth checking out – the Eggs Benedict here is one of the best in the city.

The Bagel Shop

This cute and cozy café in Bandra can light up your morning like few others can, with its delicious bagel sandwich offerings and its colourful décor. The Bandra Bugger with roast beef, caramalised onions, mushroom and lettuce stuffed into a bagel is a must try.
