If you’re looking for the best places to get some breakfast in Pune, look no further! These are my top restaurants to get some great breakfast:
Every single Puneite will agree that Vaishali is probably the best place in town to get food at practically any hour of the day. Located on Fergusson College road, it’s a hot spot for college kids and adults alike. These guys serve the most amazing South Indian dishes. Try their idli wada sambar, mysore masala dosa, and tomato onion uttappas for an authentic taste of the south. If you pop in after 5:00 pm, you should not miss their yummy SPDP. If you have a sweet tooth, they also serve a delectable ice cream sandwich. My dad also loves their cutlets (made with beetroot and potatoes served with a green chutney and tomato ketchup) and dahi wada. So, I’m basically saying, eat everything! 🙂
Wadeshwar is located pretty close to Vaishali. I love their set dosa served with pudi chutney and butter, appe served with a tangy green chutney, and the recent addition of pani puri. You can also try their rava dosa. Besides the usual dishes, Wadeshwar also serves an array of pav bhaji, thalipeeth, and tons of other stuff.
If you go ahead along FC road, all the way to the third gate of the college, you’ll find yourself at Shabari. You would do well to heed my advice, and go on a Sunday. That’s because you’ll be able to enjoy their expansive breakfast buffet. Trust me, you DO NOT want to miss this. Soft, fluffy pohe, spicy misal pav, and a wide variety of dosas, idli, wada, and lots more besides are piled high on long tables. The waiters will urge you to try everything that’s served at your table which often includes mini pudis, thalipeeth, crispy and fried pakodas. They also have juice, tea, coffee, and toast that round off your hearty meal well enough to consider skipping lunch altogether!
I hope you’re looking forward to a delicious breakfast! Bon appetit!
