Where to have breakfast early morning in Pune? Amruteshwar Bhawan!

We started from Pune towards Pandharpur early in the morning at around 6 and the question on everyone’s mind was where could we have breakfast at this unearthly hour before moving forward? Hungry and craving for breakfast, we turned to google for help but all the restaurants that came up were still to open for the day. Except, of course, for Amruteshwar Bhawan - our saviour for the morning.

Amruteshwar Bhawan in Pune, the place to go for an early morning breakfast!

Amruteshwar is a one of its kind small eating joint serving breakfast for students and locals alike in the wee hours of the morning – a saviour for travellers like us and a haven for students starved for home cooked food. A small hole in the wall shop, Amruteshwar opens as early as 3 in the morning and runs all the day till 11.

At Amruteshwar, you can get Puneri Maharashtrian style breakfast like Pohe, Vada Pao, Misal Usal Pao, Sabudana Khichdi, Shira, Idli, Khari Pattice, Nimbu Paani etc. The mention of so many dishes including Pohe and Misal bought water in our mouths and we didn’t need any more reasons to convince ourselves and take a turn over to Amruteshwar.

The fact that locals start queuing up as early as 3 AM when the shop opens speaks of the legacy the shop has built for itself. It’s a standing eating joint and though the cleanliness standards and the ambience are questionable at first sight, I still loved the place for taste of the dishes.

We had a plate of Pohe with sambhar, Samosa and a plate of Misal Pao. All of them were fabulous for a quick morning snack. The tea was pretty good too. The prices are very reasonable as well keeping in mind the student base which form a major chunk of the customers here.
