Breakfast foods are often associated with European imagery, we think of muffins and cheese omelets, sandwiches and toast when we think of breakfast. Yet, for most Indian folks breakfast means a kadak cup of chai, a golden kachori, soft steamed idlis and chole so spicy they make you break sweat!
When it comes to breakfast people of Kanpur are no different, be it southern delicacies such as dosa and uttapam or northern staples like aloo poodi and kachodi, we love it all. We sure wake up with a different mood each day, but nothing tops the wholesome taste of desi treats.
Which is why we have curated a list of the top 5 desi breakfast places in Kanpur where just looking at dishes will make you salivate.
1. Samocha- Stories around chai
Samocha is “the place to be” when all you crave for is a well made cup of tea. They have a plethora of tea flavours and options to pick from and unlike your roadside stalls, they have pleasant interiors where you can relax. We would recommend having the samosas, the bun maska and the samocha chat. This place is perfect for your early morning date with bae.
