Our millennial sensibility does not let us sleep before 2 AM and when you have to wake up as early as 6 AM, life can be quite a struggle! In this torturous moment of falling out of bed, the only thought that goes through our mind is, *Gimme a cup of coffee*. And so, here are 9 places that open before or latest at 8 AM, and will save your day with a dose of that much needed caffeine: 

1. Bueno

Bueno is one place we're so glad to have around because they stay open 24 hours which is quite helpful for those crazy mornings. Their freshly brewed coffee is always the best to wake us up and they use high quality coffee beans for that lovely smelling cup. They also have a great range of sandwiches to grab for breakfast in the morning, and we love to order an omelette here if we have the time!

This American cafe has a quintessential American menu, complete with pancakes, eggs, bacon and of course, a steaming cup of coffee. Their espresso and americanos are just the right flavour and they know how to brew it right. They’re pretty quick with their service so you won’t be late while getting your morning fill of energy.

Located in the Little Tibet Market in North Campus, Ama is a popular breakfast spot for students and locals alike.

4. Starbucks

The first obvious name to come to our minds when we hear coffee, Starbucks is going to remain our go-to place despite all else because they conveniently have 25 outlets all over the city. The Duo Mocha Hot Coffee is a must try for its creamy, richly flavoured cup with lots of chocolate for those who love their coffee sweet. The S’mores Frappuccino is another great choice for the sweet coffee lovers and the roasted marshmallow with whipped cream on top is enough to make our mornings cheerful!

This homely little place is so warm & cozy, perfect for spring mornings and their amazing food and brews make it all the better.

7. Roots - Cafe In The Park

This cafe makes us feel like we’re on a beach shack somewhere in South India! Their filter coffee is to die for and makes us so nostalgic and they also offer French Press coffee, an earthy, rich brew that is rare to find in the city. Their menu has South Indian breakfast dishes and snacks which are light and healthy.
