Having a warm cup of coffee can be very relaxing on a cold winter evening. Eating something that flatters the taste of coffee can enhance the whole experience. Even though coffee is very delicious on its own, some food items in particular go very well with it. Let's look at some of the top coffee and food pairings that can satiate your cravings and also give you some relief from the cold outside.

* Bagel With Eggs

There is nothing better than the classic combination of sweet and savoury. Bagels are very famous in the West and now they're slowly becoming popular in India as well. Bagels become very crispy on the outside when toasted and have a very dense and luscious interior. You can stuff the bagels with some scrambled eggs and cheese. You can also add some greens like lettuce for a fresh touch. These bagels can be paired with the elegant and creamy cappuccino. This can also be a perfect breakfast option just in case you do not like eating heavy snacks in the evening.

* Croissant 

A cup of coffee and a butter croissant is the most classic and delightful combination of all time. This is a pair that you can frequently find in cafes and bakeries. A butter croissant can be enjoyed with a warm cup of coffee and is also a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth in the evening. Croissants are extremely smooth on the inside and crunchy on the outside. You can dip it in the coffee and savour the taste. It is also the perfect light snack for your winter evenings.
