The first and most important meal of the day.
The Quench Cafe

A great place to have a healthy breakfast. The most amazing thing being they open at 8.00 am.
Our Recommendation- Focaccia Stuffed Pesto Char-grilled Sandwich, Masala Omelette and Orange Flaxseed Muffin.
The Yellow Straw
Location- Dalhousie, Minto Park, Sector 1 and 5- Salt Lake, New Town- Kolkata
This is a chain of juice bars that serves up a variety of juices, shakes, smoothies and quick bites. The fruits and vegetables used aren’t chopped or ground; instead, they are squeezed to minimise oxidation and retain whole nutrients and vitamins. Bonus- They do Home Delivery.
Our Recommendation- Fruit Sundae, Mint Cooler and Skin Glow Straw.
A combination of breakfast and lunch eaten usually during the late morning or early afternoon.
Mystic Yoga Cafe
Location- Camac Street, Hindustan Park, Salt Lake- Sector 1- Kolkata
Part of a Yoga studio, the café restricts its menu to healthy food and drink options. Open to non-members, this café is a welcome break for those seeking to eat out yet eat healthily. The entire menu is very impressive on the health meter, the breakfast buffet steals the highlight.
Our Recommendation- Falafel Platter with Hummus, Spinach Crepe, Litti-Chokha, Jasmine Green Tea, Apple Pie and the range of Ayurvedic Drinks.

Wabi Sabi is a dreamy place where you can unwind with your folks after a long day or relax with a book in the corner over cups of coffee and nutritious vegetarian dishes. A cafe cum boutique which offers from gluten-free momos to banana ashwagandha mix to lifestyle products to shop for.
