(SPOT.ph) Breakfast is such a universal go-to treat that some restaurants offer them all day as part of the regular menu. And that’s great for those late nights when you have a hankering for spam and eggs; there’s no need to wait for the sun to rise to get your fix. We round up 10 places where you can satisfy your late-night breakfast cravings.
Here are restaurants in Manila where you can grab breakfast at night:
It’s hard to resist a restaurant with such inviting interiors—more so if it serves good food and good coffee. Refinery has wooden design elements that give off a feeling of warmth, creating the perfect setup for devouring mouthwatering breakfast dishes. Some meals are only offered until 10:30 a.m. or 5 p.m., so you might want to try these first. On top of our list is The Big Breakfast (P395)—a plate of jalapeño sausage, smoked bacon, breakfast potatoes, sunny-side up, and toast. Those just getting off work will find the Bacon French Toast (P385) extra rewarding, what with that serving of maple smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, mozzarella, and an indulgent side of vanilla cream.
Coffee at night? Who are we to tell you not to? Coffee connoisseurs can either pick the beans and extraction method of their preference or give the 2AM Espresso (P115) a try. You can also take a shot at the alcoholic beverages available and cap it all off with the Frozen White Sangria (P450).
Refinery is at Joya Tower, 28 Plaza Drive, Rockwell Center, Makati City.
Rustic meets industrial at Single Origin, a cozy hangout for those who love coffee and western breakfast. The waffles are served all day, and guests can choose between the sweet and savory offerings. If you’re leaning toward the sweet side, order the Banana Almond Waffle (P395). Slice through the waffles and relish the flavors of sliced bananas, whipped cream, and Vermont maple syrup.
Looking for heavier fare? Choose among the brunch plates on the menu. Keep it simple with Classic Corned Beef and Eggs (P395), a plate of homemade corned beef and creamy scrambled eggs served with toasted bread, but you can also go for something lighter, like sandwiches and toasts.
