Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day- this is something we've all been told this at least once! A good breakfast keeps one energised throughout the day & can be all the energy that you need in your routine. The best part is that if you do eat a small hill's worth of indulgent breakfast food, it wouldn't harm your body! (At least that's what we'd like to think)

If you like your treats to happen early in the morning, we have a list of places in Lucknow that you have-have to try out for a killer breakfast spread. So, head to each one of these places & you'd be nothing less than grateful!

1. Sahib Cafe

Nestled in the grandeur of Taj, Sahib Cafe will have to be the most regal, luxurious and coveted places in the city. The setting is as stunning as it gets, with light fixtures overhead, appetizing aroma of toasted bread, baked goods and warm food hitting the nostrils. To add multiple pleasures, lovely music pours in from speakers or often a live music player. Nothing gets better than Sahib's Cafe.

No matter who you are and what kind of breakfast it is that you like, you're sure to find a mind-blowing spread here. With toasted parathas filled with steaming stuffing, soft idlis served with a number of chutneys, dosa, fluffy pancakes, waffles, donuts, danishes, croissants, coffee, tea, fresh juices, lassi, chaach and what not, the number of options here are over-whelming.

We would highly recommend the Everything Omelette, the Eggs Benedict and fresh steamed idlis; they are as good as it gets.

4. Healthy Panda

Healthy Panda is a cutesy little place just off the Dayal intersection in Gomti Nagar and we are big fans of this place. Not only is the place cozy, comfortable and has quite a nice feel to it, they serve great affordable grub!

We love-love-looovve the English breakfast platter here, that comes with a toast of bread, chicken sausages, eggs, beans, tomato, mushroom and pairs perfectly with a side of espresso or English breakfast green tea. We also recommend the pancakes and the eggs florentine here which, to be honest, are pretty stellar! Plus, if you're a health nut, you can also order from a great selection of nutritious dishes.

Price for one: ₹300

Location: 4/285 Viram Khand, Gomti Nagar

5. Orchid

Set inside the Fortune Park BBD Hotel, Orchid is a great place to grab a quick breakfast. Their breakfast spread is quite stunning as well and you'd definitely find something to your liking at the place.

The breakfast service is pretty good, so you can be sure to get a number of amazing options to pick from. They even have a live cooking station where you can ask the chef to prepare fresh eggs and tea/coffee for you. They have a multi cuisine spread so you never find yourself at a lack of options.
