Default Bangalore - BR Hills - Himavad Gopalaswamy Hills - Bandipur - Mysore

I am planning for the below road trip and plan to be on the road by 6:00 AM from Bangalore:

Bangalore - BR Hills - Himavad Gopalaswamy Hills - Bandipur - Mysore

Bangalore to BR Hills
Bangalore - Kanakapura - Kollegala - Chamarajanagar - BR hills
What are the food options on this route for breakfast?
I know the road condition until Shivanasamudram is quite ok except a few rough patches. How is the road condition after shivanasamudram until BR hills?

Bangalore - Maddur - Malavalli - Kollegala - Chamarajanagar - BR hills
I know this route is better than the previous one, but the food options are better until Maddur so is the road condition.
Heard that roads after Maddur till malavalli the roads are bad.
How are the conditions after malavalli?

Bangalore - Mysore - Nanjangud - Chamarajanagar - BR hills
I think this is the best routes of all but it is longer than the previous 2 routes. The road condition is much better in this route than the other 2.
Any comments?

BR hills - Himavad gopalaswamy hills
route info?
road condition?
eating options for lunch?

Bandipur - Mysore
The road conditions for this route should be ok.
eating options for an evening snack?

"cool" the 3rd option drive is very good. But the problem start after Mysore. For some kms the road upto Nanjangud is horrible. but on an average it is good. But some patches after gundlupet is horrible. On One side of the road, construction is going on so it will be 2 way traffic, so be careful on that. almost 20-25kms you can account for bad road after Mysore if you chose 3rd option. The road is gopalswamy betta after the arch(from the main road) is pretty descent given the conditions over there. The road is very narrow and you can find buses also coming from the other direction so be ultra cautious on this. Food options are plenty for 3rd option. You will not have any problem.

Third option is the best. Plenty of food options. Take the mysore route. On the Kanakpura road, you dont know which section may turn bad.
