Darjeeling breakfasts - one of my favorite places.

Lunar Hotel is tiny but quite wonderful. Lunar Vegetarian Restaurant is located right at hotel reception. It is very popular. If you don't book your table; you can expect to wait at lunch time & maybe be turned away in the evenings.

Very good North and South Indian vegetarian dishes - plus they dabble in 'Indian-Chinese'.

Many options for vegans - especially in the South Indian section of the menu.

Ideal for breakfast as they open very early.

Excellent views of Kanchenjunga & surrounding mountains - if you are lucky & get the window table.

Very clean kitchen - which you can look into.

NOT a budget place - but very good value in my opinion.

Not yet 'discovered' by too many non-Indians

I often meet old friends from Kolkata there - the owners themselves are from Kolkata.

Well maintained bathroms.

No lift - the steep stairs up to the 2nd floor mean that access is tricky if you are elderly or physically challenged in any way.
