Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

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.

2. Mithas

Known all over the city as a sweet shop which has created a niche, Mithas serves some of the best breakfast food items you’ll find in Kanpur. With a long list of options to choose from, at Mithas you will always have a great breakfast. We would absolutely recommend trying the jalebis, dosa, kachori, khasta and the lassi here. If you feel even the tiniest bit adventurous get the chole bhature for breakfast, they’ll keep you charged throughout the day!
