(SPOT.ph) Many of us believe that any time is a great time for breakfast, whether you have it as soon as the sun rises or before the day ends. And if you happen to be in the south of the Metro, you’ve got plenty of choices. Next time you’re looking for your daily dose of all-time brekky favorites like waffles, eggs, or tapsilog, look no further. Here are 10 places in Alabang and Parañaque to help you get that breakfast fix.
Another Story’s rustic and floral theme will have you falling in love with the place, but their menu is definitely another story altogether. Whether you come for breakfast, brunch, or merienda, there’s something that's sure to catch your eye. Try their Eggs Benedict (P395) topped with a mean homemade hollandaise. For the more carnivorous, a helping of their tender U.S. Wagyu Beef Belly Tapa (P495), complete with garlic rice and eggs, just might be the highlight of your day.
Another Story is at Evia Mall, Daang Hari Road, Muntinlupa City.
Exchange Alley Coffee House
Sometimes coffee is all it takes to complete an already-perfect breakfast. That’s why Exchange Alley Coffee House (or EACH) makes a great stop for anyone who takes their caffeine and breakfast game seriously. You can have your pick from their various brews to have with your meals, but even if you’re not a coffee lover, there’s still something for you. We’re talking about their special Hot Chocolate (P150), which will warm you up all the way to your toes. Have it with the EACH Breakfast (P450), a hefty English breakfast featuring two eggs, a side salad, crisp toast, pork and beans, bacon strips, and sausage.

For a truly Parisian breakfast, try their Le Francois (P290), served with two mini pastries, a French toast, baguette slices, and butter and jam.

True to its name, Ritchie’s Diner has a familiar selection of diner treats like tall milkshakes, huge burgers, and thick-cut fries. And what diner wouldn’t have their fair share of breakfast food for when those hankerings hit? Their Cheese Steak Omelette (P220) has deliciously sautéed beef strips, onions, peppers, and cheese all rolled into one delicious dish. And just the first bite of their Banana Dulce de Leche French Toast (P140) will have you squealing in delight. But if you’re in it for the meat, the Grand Slam Breakfast Sampler (P220) features bacon strips, Spam, and corned beef all on one plate!

Luna Specialty Coffee
With their industrial interiors and laid-back vibe, Luna Specialty Coffee makes a great hangout for anyone needing a little peace and quiet. It doesn’t hurt that their breakfast plates are mouthwateringly good, too. Just have a taste of their version of everyone’s favorite Chicken Adobo (P295), made with their own special sauce, to see what we mean. Fish lovers will appreciate the Smoked Bangus (P220), served with a side of some perfectly salted scrambled egg and rice. And we definitely wouldn’t mind having cheat meal with their Lechon Kawali (P245)—so crunchy and soft that it just hits all the right spots.
Luna Specialty Coffee is at 2/F CTP Alpha Building, Investment Drive Madrigal Business Park, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
The Juice Pub whips up a whole menu of healthy eats that look good, taste great, and don’t leave a dent in your wallet.

If you’ve just hit the gym (or have the appetite of someone who has), go for a Tuna Steak (P180), that’s seasoned tuna with the joint’s homemade Filipino-style steak sauce, served with brown rice. For Korean cuisine fans, The Juice Pub’s Kimchi-Wrapped Soy Chicken Bowl (P180) is so good, you’ll be eating it in your dreams!
