8 top spots to make the most important meal of the day all that more special!

Kristina Cassar Dowling

Ahhh breakfast. So vital and so versatile - sometimes all you’re craving is a slab of bacon on some lightly buttered toast, and other times your sweet tooth is awake before you’ve even had a sip of coffee. Waking up to a good breakfast always gives the day more direction, and there are a number of fantastic breakfast spots around the islands that will help perk you up first thing in the morning! Here are eight of our favourites.

1. Manouche Craft Bakery and Bistro

I mean, you must have heard of Manouche Craft Bakery and Bistro by now! If the lunch menu hasn’t got you hooked yet, the brekkie choices sure will! Known for their exceptional baked goods, they've also recently launched our latest obsession: the Manouche cronut. If you’re looking for something a little more savoury, we recommend their exceptional Croque Madame.

3. Drift Meze Café

A trip to Drift is always welcome; whether it’s for the superb bagels served with smoked salmon, cream cheese and rocket or the fresh croissants baked just before the morning rush. If you’ve got some more time on your hands, try out the Full English Breakfast - a staple that can only be enhanced with the island’s best coffee.

4. Fre{n}sh Bakes

One of Spinola’s greatest gifts: Fre{n}sh! The top destination for anyone looking to make their morning epic. The flakiest, fluffiest, most amazing croissants will find their way into your life if you head to Fre{n}sh Bakes before you pop into the office or on your way out for a day of exploring. If you're in the Qormi region, you're in luck, the creative bakers at Fre{n}sh are also stirring up some good eats at Le Grenier à Pain. Some of their newer additions will also hit the spot for savoury lovers: these include freshly prepared sandwiches such as the salami and butter rosette.

If you’re grabbing some breakfast with a group of friends, Oblico is your best bet. Their extensive menu will suit the entire crowd thanks to an amazing choice of Continental and English Breakfasts, omelettes, croissants and other pasties hoping to jump right into your stomach. Wash these down with a selection of milkshakes, herbal teas and other hot drinks from 9am till late.
