Just a short two minute walk from Darjeeling Mall, Glenary’s is a cosy bakery & restaurant that is great for spending wonderful time over light bites and excellent tea or coffee! Glenary’s Bakery & Cafe is well known for the breakfast it serves. Swing by in the mornings and perch yourself on one of their wooden benches along the open air balcony area. If you can spare more time, enjoy a simple breakfast of Roasted Pork Sub Sandwich with Hot Chocolate.
Run by the Edwards family, Glenary’s is a prominent landmark of Darjeeling and existing since the British colonial days. Glenary’s has remained as the best bakery in Darjeeling district. Many restaurants and even star hotels in Darjeeling buy the fresh breads, cheese, cakes and pastry from Glenary’s and serve them to their customers, such has been its reputation. They have opened two outlets recently, one at the lower town of Darjeeling at Chowk Bazaar and another at Bagdogra (near the airport).
Food Served on Table :
Roasted Pork Sub Sandwich – Freshly baked crusty sub sandwich rolls are layered with savory, tender, juicy, marinated and roasted pork loin, caramelized onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, iceberg lettuce and two slices of cheese. Glenary’s is sort of a local legend in making an amazingly tasty pork roast just for these Sub Sandwiches.
Hot Chocolate – The Hot Chocolate here is smooth, with a nutty hint, but it is the flavour that you cannot miss. The hot, velvety smooth chocolate concoction is the most balanced we’ve tried so far. Such a delight before taking on the rest of the day!
Describing Taste and Flavor :
It was raining like cats and dog since morning and my mind is telling me – no tea or coffee at hotel today, go straight for Glenary’s and sip their hot chocolate while adoring the chill winds. The Hot Chocolate here is great for a rainy day boost — a perfect blend of dark chocolate and milk, and is the perfect cocoa fix to start the day with. Let the cool wind gush in with the drizzle, let it rain!
When the weather forecast calls for a cold rainy day, hot Roasted Pork Sub Sandwich sounds the most appealing. Don’t miss out on the decadent Roasted Pork Sub Sandwich, featuring lightly seasoned roasted pork meat accompanied by onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, iceberg lettuce, cheese and a spread of chilli aioli sandwiched between multigrain sub.
When in Darjeeling, this spacious, insta-worthy bakery is the spanking place to be for solid breakfast. Seating is limited, and most come by to quietly immerse themselves in the soothing aroma of baking cakes and brewing Darjeeling tea at Glenary’s Bakery & Cafe. This beautiful and nostalgic colonial space is set to be a hot hangout around the Darjeeling Mall.
