A trip to the White Mountains isn't complete without a stop at Polly's Pancake Parlor, one of the region's best pancake restaurants.

Polly's Pancake Parlor has been a favorite destination to enjoy breakfast since 1938. The restaurant started in a caravan where the founder's served their first folksy pancake. 

What began as a strategy to increase the sale of their farm's maple sugar products quickly evolved into a booming restaurant.

Polly's Pancake Parlor, despite its name, offers far more than pancakes. Other favorites on the menu include any kind of eggs, whipped cream–topped waffles, and golden brown French toast. 

The restaurant's pure Yankee mentality is the one thing that makes it unique. All of Polly's pancake mixes are made from scratch, and the restaurant even stone-grinds its own flour for its batters, ensuring that your pancakes are as fresh as possible.

Breakfast is clearly the center of Polly's, but if you're here in the afternoon, lunch is also served. And because your waitress prepares your pancakes, there's less danger of misunderstandings, extended wait periods, or rushed breakfasts.

Location: 672 Route 117, Sugar Hill, NH.

A typical old Shillong house with a modern makeover! It is a well-equipped modern-day hotel known for providing top-notch services at a reasonable price.

The city's hub, Police Bazar, is only 2 kilometers away, ensuring that you do not miss out on Shillong's excitement and pulse. The yard in front of the cottage is a nice place to sit and relax in the morning for your tea and breakfast.

MTR, Bangalore

This popular South Indian breakfast spot in Bangalore is a must-visit.

The Mavalli Tiffin Room's (MTR) breakfast is worth the wait. It is so popular that even the Karnataka Chief Minister had to line up for a masala dosa on one occasion.

MTR is one of the few restaurants that has adapted to every condition for over a century. It has persevered through the war for independence, WWII, and the current pandemic, adapting and renewing itself at each stage.

With dollops of butter and ghee, you can have delicious south Indian cuisine. The Masala Dosas are mouth-watering. 

Location: 14, Lalbagh Road, Bangalore, India
