3. Di Ghent Cafe
Located at Cross Point in Gurgaon, this is one of the popular places in the city that pop up in our minds when it comes to a hearty breakfast. The cafe opens as early as 8 AM and the fact that it’s in a mall makes parking your bikes just that much easier. From flavourful Eggs Benedict to delicious scones, they have it all on their menu. We might just go cycling to feast on the yummies they dish out - they’re just THAT good!
4. Mysore Cafe

5. Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters
There are multiple Blue Tokai outlets in the city and each one is more pretty than the next! We’re particularly fond of the one located in Champa Gali, so after you’re done with your biking sesh around the city, you can land up at this coffee house to grab a delish solo meal. You can order up yummy dishes like Chocolate & Caramel Twice Baked Croissant and Mushroom Cream Cheese Crostata, which can be paired up with a nice cup of coffee - of which there are plenty of options available here, of course! The cafe is located in multiple locations, so you can park your bike outside the cafe near the entrance (in case of Champa Gali) and lock it up before you go into the coffee house.

6. Chai Lelo
The awesomesauce folks here are known for adding a modern twist to good ol’ chai! If you’re in the mood for a quick bite and nothing too fussy, this is your spot! Their impressive menu includes sumptuous options like Desi Masala Maggi, Samosa Chaat, Paneer Omelette and more! Pair it up with yummy options in tea like their White Elixer Tea and Maharaja Breakfast Tea and it’ll basically be a brekkie made in heaven! People generally tend to park their cycles outside the little shop when they stop over for brekkie.
7. Monika Cafe
There’s nothing that beats a desi meal early in the morning and we Delhiites totally love to kickstart our day with a plate of piping hot chole bhature! Monika Cafe is a little gem located in Vikaspuri that you can check out if you’re craving a nice and desi brekkie after your intense cycling workout. Their paneer-stuffed bhature are pretty famous and are said to be fluffy AF. Do give this a try if you’re around the corner on your bike! Since the seating area is pretty small, people generally opt for a takeaway. You can park you bicycle outside the tiny shop and feast on this desi meal.

Meal For Two | Rs 200
