Does anyone know of a decently priced American or English Breakfast joint, which serves breakfast all day? Doesn't matter how the breakfast is called, it just should contain a pot of coffee, 2 eggs any style, bacon and some bread (even toast). Beans, jam, sausage are optional.

After eating Dosas and Thalis for the last 2 months, I'm craving for some conventional breakfast again. ;-)

Most places I visited for western breakfast around here so far serve English Breakfast for something around Rs 170-225, which is simply ridiculous in my eyes. Some offer breakfast only until 11am, while I prefer to have it later.

I'm looking for something comparable to Oasis Restaurant in Anjuna (if that says anything to anyone), which serves a nice Israeli Breakfast (2 eggs, coffee, pita b read, garlic spread and cucumber/tomato salad) for Rs 90, or an American breakfast for Rs 110 or tasty English Breakfast for Rs 120. It's just too far to drive up there all the time. ;-)

Anyone care to share his/her favorites?
Cheers,

Chris

Can you recall the prices there, GoanCanuck? Although I've been to Infantaria a couple of times for dinner (liked their Rolados and their 6 Kings for Rs 100 offer), I can't remember having seen any breakfast offer. Time to try it out again....

Don't remember the prices because I usually eat breakfast only if I have been on an all night boozefest.
Otherwise when I am normal I skip breakfast and head straight for lunch.

Cool English Breakfast

The best English Breakfast I have had in Goa is at Corrin's Bar, opposite the bread shop near Calangute circle. I also cant remember the price, but it was very reasonable and had black pudding as well. Very Nice!

La Fenice in Candolim (opposite the old Ice Factory and in the same lane as Literati) has opened a restaurant below which is offering breakfast from 10:30 until 17:30. Nice seating and decent food, toast, jam, omelet, bacon, fresh juice, etc. starting at Rs.50.

Guys, that are some great tips already! Thanks a million!

Will try to find Seby's, La Fenice and Corrin's Bar for a start and see how I get along. ;-)

Some update from my side:

I checked meanwhile La Fenice, which for sure has extensive offers, but I found that a complete breakfast will costs anything above Rs 220, as they charge most items separately.

I ate at Hungry Hourse Restaurant in Calangute, where an English Breakfast sets you back Rs 225. While the food was very nice, the coffee was very thin. It was a huge mug though, which was great, but you could see the bottom through the coffee. ;-)

I passed 'Orangeboom' in Anjuna today, but it was completely dead, there was nobody around at 1pm and it looked quite run-down and dusty, so we gave it a pass and proceeded to Curlies:

There we tried the Middle East Breakfast (Rs 110) and the English Breakfast (Rs 120). Both were quite nice, although the bacon of the English Breakfast tasted expired/off and no coffee/drink is included in this price, so you have to add another Rs 30-40, depending on what kind of coffee you like. She coffee shakes/lassies are cool. And the view was great, though!

Maybe I'm asking too much, I just feel that a normal western breakfast here is priced way above the average of other countries in Asia, especially Candolim/Calangute/Baga area.

For instance, anywhere in Thailand you can get a decent breakfast for 80-100 Baht, in Bali for around Rp. 25.000, which is both around 1-2 Euro. Similar quality in Goa costs at least 3-4 Euro, which is astounding, as I can buy the ingredients so much cheaper on the market or in shops here, than in Thailand or Indonesia.

My gold standard here in Goa so far for a decently priced western breakfast of good quality remains Oasis Restaurant in Anjuna (as mentioned in the inital post).

Okay, I shut up already.

;-)

Just wanted to add some other prices I found out meanwhile:

Infantaria serves 2 kinds of breakfast sets, one they call a mini-Breakfast, which is basically a Full English Breakfast, but without coffee for Rs 240. And a unspecified Infantaria-Special Breakfast for Rs 290. You can as well put your very own breakfast together, as most items are prices separately in the menu.

Corrin's Bar charges Rs 250 for a Full English Breakfast including coffee.

The quest continues, anyone care to join? ;-)
