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 best breakfast buffet in Bangalore.

I have had my share of disappointments over the years. A 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.

Best Breakfast Buffet Bangalore – Citrus, Leela Palace

So why do I think Citrus is one of the best breakfast buffets in Bangalore? There are many reasons.

Huge Spread at Leela Palace Bangalore brunch:

This is one of the reasons that Citrus has the best buffet breakfast in Bangalore. 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 at the Leela Palace Breakfast Buffets in Bangalore:

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
  • The Mediterranean spread like Pita, Hummus, olives etc
  • Selection of cheese
  • Selection of both fresh and canned fruit juices.

The ambience at Citrus is heavenly. They have both indoor and outdoor seating and you can choose where to sit based on the weather. Also the soft lighting adds to the allure of the place.
