Guide to Delicious Breakfast in Somwarpet Kodagu

Nestled on a ridge surrounded by scenic green hills, Somwarpet is a small town in Kodagu, Karnataka which translates to ‘Monday Market’, Somwarpet is dominated by a huge market at the centre of the town, narrow streets, vast coffee plantations and promise of good coffee with food – both lived up to my expectations.

Presenting the best vegetarian breakfast places in Somwarpet:

Ootada Mane, Somwarpet Town:

Ootada mane is family-run pure-vegetarian place nestled in a house serving breakfast (no dosas) and lunch in the form of veg thali, chapatis and ragi mudde. Being a small place with house-like ambience, they don’t have a huge spread, but dish-up simple, pocket-friendly delicious food made with lots of love and quick service.
