It is rightly said – morning shows the day. And what better than a delicious meal to kick-start the day?! We understand, breakfast during the weekdays can be somewhat hectic – which is why we generally opt for quick meals including bread toast, eggs et al. But, it is just the opposite during the weekends. Weekends call for treat and we like to start it with a yummy morning meal. From greasy kachoris to elaborated English breakfast – we find a pool of options to choose from. Some like to make these delicacies at home, some enjoy visiting their favourite breakfast places to ‘break the fast’. If you fall in the second category, then this article is just for you. Here, we curated a list of some classic and popular breakfast places from across Kolkata to go on a bineging spree this weekend. Let’s take you through.

If you are someone who enjoy early morning bike rides, then we suggest, stop by Balwant Sigh Dhaba at Harish Mukherjee Road, Bhawanipore. It opens at 5am and people visit this eatery for hot kesar chai, club kachoris and the most popular – doodh cola and jalebi.

5. China Town (Tangra):
Another place where you will get a classic Chinese breakfast is China Town (or as we call it Tangra). For the unversed, during the 1930s civil war in China, large group of people were evicted from the country, who took shelter in Tangra, Kolkata (then Calcutta) and took up work at tanneries. However, over the years, their profession shifted to food industry, giving birth to what we call Indo-Chinese cuisine. Here, you will find age-old eateries in the bylanes offering the popular ‘shingara chow’ – noodles prepared with pork fat and tossed with wontons (which reminds of Bengali samosa/shingara).
