6 Hidden Brunch Places to Try in Manila This Weekend
Breakfast is one of life’s greatest pleasures. On weekdays, you’re lucky if you can make time for breakfast at all. But on weekends, you can indulge in a leisurely breakfast and take it all the way to lunch. Manila is full of delicious brunch spots waiting to be discovered. Here are 6 hidden breakfast nooks to try out this weekend.
This popular cafe on Kapitolyo’s main street East Capitol Drive is one of those places you can eat from breakfast to lunch (and even dinner). Main Street’s Breakfast Pizza topped with bacon, eggs, and hash browns is the best mix of breakfast, lunch, and North American fusion cuisine this side of Pasig.
Grilled ensaymada stuffed with chocolate. You’re welcome.
We really don’t need to say anything else about this place, but for the sake of it: Bakere Cafe is one of Brixton Street’s hidden gems. This quiet cafe in Three Brixton serves legendary baked goods that people have been ordering since the 70s.
The Good Seed by Edgy Veggy
If indulgent breakfasts aren’t your type, check out The Good Seed a few doors down from Bakere. They capture the flavor of Filipino breakfast and put it in a healthy vegetarian dish. Their mushroom longganisa and sisig have a cult following among their regulars.
Up in the Clouds
Ice cream for breakfast? YES. Up in the Clouds serves artisanal ice cream, with fancy flavors like Butterbeer and Madagascar Vanilla. This adorable cafe in Maginhawa is worth a trip to north. It is as pleasing on the eyes as it is on the palate. But here’s their real secret: they have amazing wagyu beef tapa with steak fat fried rice!
Sweet Butter Bakery + Cafe
Tucked away in Teacher’s Village, QC, Sweet Butter Bakery + Cafe is the perfect spot to have a quiet brunch at any time of day. Yes, any time. Their all day breakfasts are a favorite among locals, as are their cheesecakes. Try the blueberry, it’s their bestseller.
Weekday or weekend, no morning is complete without coffee. Kape Locale serves it strong and simple – no frills, just good local coffee with a major caffeine kick. They’ve also got tsokolate for those with a sweet tooth, and an excellent salabat for those with a sore throat. And yes, they have food too! Their pan de sal and pan de coco go perfectly with their coffee.
