Best Breakfast Buffet in Bangalore – Citrus, Leela Palace

Everyone knows that I am a foodie. But most people don’t know that I love continental breakfasts and I am always hopping around town to find the perfect one.
I have had my share of disappointments over the years. Few years back, I decided to go to Zen, Leela Palace, Bangalore for breakfast and I fell in love with the spread. I was disappointed when I got to know that they had shifted breakfast to their new and revamped restaurant Citrus, Leela Palace over a year back.
But that disappointment did not last long. The new restaurant was even better in terms of the spread and I have come to the conclusion that this restaurant (Citrus – The Leela Palace) is the best in case you want to have an Indian fusion / continental breakfast whilst in Bangalore.
Don’t get me wrong. I still love my MTR’s, CTR’s, Brahmins and Koshy’s. But they don’t serve such a huge spread in terms of continental breakfast.
So why do I love Citrus? There are many reasons.

• ·Huge Spread:
This is one of the best reasons. They have such a huge spread and it is so difficult to choose. Most of the times we do not end up sampling even a tiny portion of the spread.
• · Variety:
Citrus caters to so many cuisines. On a weekday, these are the things that you have to choose from:
·         Cereal
·         Fresh Fruits
·         Sweet items like croissants, doughnuts, cupcakes etc. My favorite part of the buffet
·         Salad items
·         Bread Basket
·         South Indian breakfast items like Dosa, Idli, Vada, Upma etc
·         North  Indian breakfast items like Aloo Paratha, Poori Baji, Samosas etc
·         Pan Asian breakfast dishes like fried rice, noodles etc. I cannot eat this in the morning though.
·         Selection of cold cuts for the non-vegetarians
·         Waffles
·         Pancakes
·         Egg dishes such as omelettes, boiled eggs, scrambled etc. Chef is at your service
·         Mediterranean spread like Pita, Hummus, olives etc
·         Selection of cheese
·         Selection of both fresh and canned fruit juices.

•  Better than its competitors:
If you want to have such a huge selection, you have to visit the star hotels. I have been to many like the ITC, Le Meridien, Taj, MoveNPick, Marriot over the years and I always prefer Citrus in Bangalore.
I definitely recommend this place. So you should definitely try it out if you are in Bangalore.
Cost: Rs1200 including tax for a weekday buffet breakfast. Their Sunday brunches are priced at around Rs3000 per person (Yet to try this out)

  1. Wow, that looks like one tasty breakfast! Being a budget traveler means I don't get to indulge so often, but when I do I am one happy hippe 🙂 I recently had an amazing continental breakfast buffet at Grecotel in Athens, Greece that was to die for!
