Breakfast at Colony 

Breakfast, Raintree Hotel, Chennai

After having a sumptuous meal for dinner,  I was definitely looking forward to an elaborate Breakfast & Lunch Buffet at Colony.

Breakfast at Colony

For most of the packages even if you book online through deal sites or directly you generally get a complimentary Breakfast. And I think we tend to try everything without following any rhyme or reason while eating.  Fruits followed by food, juices followed by milk we pick all the wrong combination and yet love it. This is what food does to anyone. We eat more than we think we can and indulge all our senses in this.

Breakfast Cereals for me is like a holy dip in Ganges. I always pick the honey coated corn flakes ( Kellogg’s K) topping it up with loads of dry fruits ( taking value for money out of a free breakfast) and adding cold milk to keep it healthy.

Cut fruits, veggies  and juices : this is my second dip in holy Ganges again where I justify my upcoming indulgence as if I am bribing my Digestive system,   as if telling my tummy “hey Dont mind junk is coming meanwhile do the detox”.

Now is the Sinful time as I say I am dieting along with regular meals., meaning I ll follow the diet along with my regular food and would not let that weight slip down the scale. So asked for a Parantha as they said they have chola ( white gram) Parantha that’s their special today. I didn’t liked the filling so switched to let’s have south Indian and ordered a Mysore Dosa.

Mysore Dosa and Filter coffee – I think I did my day right with this south Indian food. This was the best ever I had so far. Probably the masala here tasted more authentic then the one I had in north,  a strong flavor of ginger with right Spice level just loved it.My colleague ordered for a Filter coffee and I was evaluating. While we started discussing about coffee ,I ended up having a filter coffee too and just loved it.

And when I said it was time for some sin, I meant it. The small placard on the table said “Good morning,  please order……… ” and I saw waffles in the list and I was like I have to have this. Can’t miss to indulge in this. Little did I know this is going to be a waffle Day as I ended up having one in the evening as well at “Waffle Thru the day”.

Got my favorite waffle done with maple syrup and topped with ice-cream. Just a great way to start the day… Super yummy.

The options here are many from amazing south Indian stuff,  stir fried vegetables, choices of juices and fruits,  cereals , egg preparations,  loads of south Indian food from idly, pongal,  dosa,  sprouts, breads and bakes for desserts.

Loved the morning Vibes of this place and the direct sunlight that made this place shine to its  glory and smiling faces all around all eager to serve the best to you.


A self proclaimed storyteller who loves food and is a health freak to the core. A person who has got a sense of humor to lighten up the most serious stuff. i love the life as it comes, planning is not my cup of tea since i am coffee lover. I brew my own jokes in all situations and love being my own audience. Happy go lucky is the attitude that i carry around. and i stay away from people who throw attitude(cant understand why they carry the weight of their attitude when all they can do is to throw it on others )
