A (purely fictional) wise man once said: “With great date, ideas come great preparations.” So to totally live up to the quote, we’ve come up with 5 breakfast date ideas that you should consider for your early morning romantic needs.
Let your relationship blossom in Flossom Kitchen + Cafe
Roses are red, violets are blue…Oh, look! Purple champorado!
Flossom Kitchen + Cafe’s signature twist is serving dishes with edible flowers. Their version of the classic champorado uses purple yam instead of cacao—and is topped with dilis (salted fish flakes), macapuno, and yema sauce. A spoonful of this will surely leave a smile on your face!
Their interiors are aesthetically pleasing and totally Instagrammable for that perfect couple shot. 👫👭👬
Flossom Kitchen + Cafe is located in San Juan, with a 2nd branch operating in SM North.
Explore an otherworldly experience with Cosmic
I vegan to fall in love the moment I saw your smile.
Cosmic’s menu highlights cuisines from countries like Japan, Italy, Korea, the Philippines, and Mexico. Their all-day breakfast menu consists of common breakfast must-haves such as eggs and longganisa.
But what’s really mind-blowing about Cosmic is the fact that their menu is completely vegan-vegetarian! The ingredients that they use are fresh and locally produced, too. One of their best-selling dishes, the Special Bagnet, perfectly encapsulates the crunch that deep-fried pork belly has to offer. Pair it up with their vegetable kare-kare and you are not likely to notice any difference.
Empower each other to live a healthy lifestyle and set your next breakfast date here! Cosmic is located in Poblacion, Makati.
Flourishing moments at Little Flour
Keep the fire burning with some steamy rice bowls.
Little Flour Cafe is very much like its sister restaurant, Wild Flour, but with the added bonus of locally-inspired breakfast rice bowl options. If you and your partner are craving for heavy breakfast meals, then you should definitely consider Little Flour.
Their sisig rice bowl mixes brown rice and sisig together, topped with freshly cooked egg. Serving quantity is good for sharing—unless you’re really hungry. Other rice bowls to choose from are bicol express, pork adobo fried rice, and arroz caldo.
Little Flour Cafe is conveniently located at the top business districts in Metro Manila—BGC, Makati, and SM Megamall.
And they lived Maple-y ever after
Experience a fairy tale of flavors with your bae-con.
Maple offers breakfast dishes that fit the definition of gourmet. Their dishes revolve around Western comfort food with a few influences from Filipino dining.
The Maple Breakfast consists of a choice between buttermilk pancakes or a giant Belgian waffle, maple bacon, breakfast sausages, bistro fries, and two fresh eggs—the perfect synchrony of juicy meat and tasty sweets. But their breakfast for champions is definitely the Prime Rib Tapa—a soy-marinated prime rib served with garlic rice and eggs, just the way Filipinos like it.
Maple has multiple branches along the Philippines, but their main branch is located in San Antonio, Makati.
You’ve Goto Believe in magic
We were born to share this goto, my love.
Goto Believe is a “kanto” style restaurant that offers gourmet street food. The idea behind their theme is to apply “hipster” culture into traditional goto through a variety of options.
Their main dishes can be classified depending on your preference: wet (lugaw) or dry (plain/fried rice). The fun part comes with choosing your toppings! Usual choices are chicharong buaklak, bagnet, pork belly, isaw, cream dory, and nilasing na hipon. It can be a bit overwhelming, so you just have to trust what your tummy feels like eating at the moment. PRO TIP: You can be creative with your toppings!
Goto Believe operates 24hrs in Kapitolyo, Pasig; 4PM – 11PM in Mandaluyong; and 7AM – 12MN in Novaliches.
There are a lot of breakfast date places that you can find around the Metro, you just have to know how and where to look! That said if you prefer eating breakfast from the comfort of home, you can order from your favorite places with the help of our app!
