I am not a morning person, much preferring the wee hours to the sunrise and early start. Night owl and all that. So breakfast isn’t really a meal I give that much importance to. That being said, I love eggs and count them as comfort food. Breakfast foods and dishes I can eat any time of the day. Indeed, I have been known to make dinner out of breakfast foods, and Eggs Benedict is in my list of top ten things to eat.
Of recent, doing lavish breakfast menus seems to be the new thing in town, and since these brekkies don’t end by 10 and go on until noon or later, they work for brunch too – which makes me happy, ’cause that’s a much more civilized hour of the weekend that I can totally wake up for and then dig into eggs and such with gusto.
Sly Granny on 12th Main in Indiranagar has been in existence for a year now, and to commemorate that anniversary, they’ve recently launched a sumptuous and decadent breakfast spread that is available between 9am and 1pm on the weekends. All the dishes have interesting twists and ingredients, and whether you love eggs and bacon or pancakes and doughnuts, they’ve got you sorted. Along with pots of tea and coffee and a couple of healthy fresh juice concoctions. Aside from the usual breakfasty options, there are things like Duck Pao, Keema Rolls, Shrimp Fritters, and even a Cheeseburger.
I missed taking pictures of the dishes from the SWEET ONES section of the menu. My bad! Definitely try the OG Doughnut and Pineapple Upside Down pancakes, and for the Elvis Presley lover like myself, The Elvis Pancake marries traditional pancakes with banana, peanut butter, nutella, milk crumbs, powdered sugar, and wait for it – crispy bacon too.
Generous portions mean that having a friend or three along will make it possible to order and try more. Here’s a look at and explanation of the various dishes we ate, and since we covered about a quarter of the menu, a repeat visit is on the horizon!
