Brunch is arguably the most delicious meal of the day, especially when paired with a cocktail or two.

From hit TV shows like “Gossip Girl” to “Gilmore Girls,” brunch is a tradition that has emerged in popular culture, capturing the beauty of a dull weekend morning where you enjoy a delicious array of food and drinks, usually with your friends.

Brunch staples include a selection of fun drinks like an espresso martini or a mimosa, plus the classic lemonade soda. These drinks are often paired with delicious meal options like pancakes, fried eggs, French toast, and more. Since we Filipinos can’t go a day without rice, this delicious rice bowl is also a must-try.

The metro has recently been infested with a number of breakfast places. In anticipation of World Breakfast Day (September 17), here are four brunch spots you can visit with your friends and family:
