Mumbai has long been the city of leisurely Sunday brunches. However with two hungry beavers unable to wait for food till ?brunch time? at 11, Sunday?s would start with bleary-eyed me flipping pancake at
8am after a Saturday night out.Now all is well with my universe as Mumbai increasingly wakes up to cafes and delis open for breakfast right around 9:00am! Serving up the soft pancakes, crisp waffles, delightful eggs and glorious smoothies are many places from Moshe?s in Cuffe Parade, Basilico in Colaba, Indigo Deli in Phoenix Mills and Colaba and more recently The Tasting Room at Raghuvanshi Mills. For a lovely South Indian option, there?s also
Dakshinayam at Walkeshwar that opens early on Sundays.
Rest assured, each and every one has been tried over many a weekend and passed the rigorous taste test of my kids. As I sit and smile benevolently at the world through my bleary eyes, I?m just happy to be fed by their kitchen rather than flip in mine. Here are some coordinates to get you on the road to breakfast bliss.
