While traditional Goan food may be one of Goa’s main attractions, restaurants and cafes serving tasty breakfast are aplenty too. Airy cafes and quaint restaurants specialise in all kinds of breads and egg preparations. From freshly baked croissants to heartier spreads, these places serve breakfast fit for a king. We recommend the six best places for breakfast in North Goa: 

Lila Cafe

Located along the Calangute-Arpora-Siolim road, Lila Cafe is a beautiful spot with a thatched roof that’s close to the Baga River. As you enter, sheer white curtains billow in the breeze and set the mood for the meal. The breakfast menu features German bread, croissant, boiled ham, sausages, bacon and eggs, omelettes, muesli and cereal. Their jams and marmalades are homemade, and taste great with the freshly baked bread.

There are also eggs to order, which may be poached, fried, scrambled, boiled or made into an omelette. Since Infantaria is so popular, it’s wise to arrive a bit early to bag a table.
