Annapoorna is synonymous with the word breakfast. Although there are many outlets round the town, Annapoorna People's Park on Govt Arts College has a comfortable and relaxed ambiance compared to the busy and loud atmosphere of the other outlets. The Vada-Sambhar, Ghee Roast, Rawa Dosa and Poori-masal are local favourites. There is even an executive breakfast available which is like a breakfast-thali with a variety of tiffin items. Round off your breakfast with Annapoorna's south Indian filter coffee which has a serious fan-following in town. (Breakfast for 2 with coffee Rs 125 - 150).
With its white-washed walls and cool air-conditioning, Thats Why On the Go makes for an ideal stop for lunch in the scorching afternoon heat.

Dessert at this place is not to be missed. Their Mud Souffle and Ferraro-Rocher cake are a treat for chocolate-lovers. (Meal for 2 Rs1000 - 1250).
Latitude is the coffee shop at the newly opened Taj Vivanta-Surya in Race course. Both buffet and a la carte options are available for dinner.
