For a good English breakfast

Located in S T Bed layout in Koramangala, the size of this place more than justifies the name. If it wasn’t for the black and white label sticking out of the wall, you wouldn't know that this place existed.

The Hole in the wall is a tiny place that opens every day at 9 in the morning and shuts at 3 in the afternoon. In the evening, it is open between 5.30 pm and 8.30 pm.

It remains open for half-day on Sundays and is closed on Mondays.

Run by a  young woman called Lynn, the first thing that will catch your attention inside is the black-board, which crisply describes everything that the place has to offer.
It reads Pancakes, Waffles, Omelettes, Sausages, Cheesecake, Baked beans, French toast, Smoothies, Tea, Coffee and lots more.

And you know the place won’t disappoint you. Beautifully decorated with not more than five tables, The Hole in the wall is a dream-come-true for anyone who have been craving for a good English breakfast without paying through your nose.

The breakfast items include an extensive menu of eggs which are served with freshly toasted bread, butter or jam, fruit juice and a cup of tea or coffee.

You have the choice of creating your own omelette with a combination of cheddar cheese, jalapeno, mushrooms, red onions, tomatoes and smoked bacon, salami, ham and sausage for the non-vegetarians.

But if you don’t trust your own instincts, then just choose from the menu which has innovatively named eggs like, The Great White, Sunday Morning, Two Birds With One Stone among many others.

The ‘All English Breakfast’ has a delicious spread of sausages, bacon, baked beans, sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, fried eggs and fresh toast is a must for people who believe in eating like a king in the morning.

They also start serving sandwiches from 11.30 am for those looking for a small bite.
While here, you should definitely try out the pancakes, which are served with a small bowl of honey.

The first bite will tell you what makes the food here different. Mildly sweet, the pancakes melt in your mouth and even after having two, you are left wanting for more.

The combination of a strong cup of coffee, sausages and pancakes is something you can even have when you more than full.

The Waffles, a slightly crispier version of the pancakes’ have freshness oozing out of them.  Everything you order is cooked by Lynn herself in the tiny, well-equipped kitchen behind the main counter and you can almost taste her love for food in the food itself.
