Sunday FUN-day. Everyone enjoys sleeping in on the weekends and waking up preparing breakfast, lunch, but you know what’s even more fun? Going out with your friends and having brunch! Picture this: a beautiful day, you have nowhere to be and you can take your time meeting up with your loved ones and having a great start of the day.

Brunch started out in Europe – England, and honestly, I’m a little upset that it has been 122 years and in Bulgaria we still don’t have a place or menu for brunch specifically. Therefore I took the liberty of researching and making a blog post with all places that serve “Brunch”. Let’s get into it.

*First place on our list is a favorite of mine *

Torro Grande has a quiet and lovely atmosphere where you can definitely enjoy a brunch-like meal and not empty out your pockets - it’s not all that pricy and is a must-go! A favorite is the mini burgers. They are so good almost equals to a whole burger! A second favorite is the omelet with cheese and spinach it has all the ingredients for a breakfast but fills you up like lunch. In my opinion, the burgers go really well with a Spritzer and the omelet is good with fresh OJ.

Afreddo Gelateria Ice Cream House – it has a wide range of Brunch type food. For example waffles with fruit and syrup, crepes (salty and sweet), bruschetta and many more. It has a lovely terrace on the top floor and a very chill vibe. Hands down best waffles I have ever had in this city has been In Afreddo. They are the lick-your-fingers-after type of food! Don’t miss out on them even if it’s not for brunch.

*Last but not least: a true gem *

To die for… No words can describe this place – first it is beautiful. So sweet and cozy, creme de la crème. Everyone has a preferred place for coffee and pastries, and mine is Eddy’s café. You can almost taste the love they put into the food they make. I recommend going there if you have a sweet tooth, you won’t be disappointed.

Smokini is a great place for brunch. The garden in the restaurant is very colorful and chill. The food is always made of fresh ingredients. I highly recommend getting the bruschetti with smoked salmon, and the cheesecake is to die for. You won’t be disappointed with this one. I want to add that the staff is very attentive, so if you happen to not find something you want just ask! The location also couldn’t be more perfect - its right in the center of Plovdiv, so you can have your brunch and enjoy a nice walk on the city center.

And for the final touch!

All of the drinks that are brunch “appropriate” can be found in any of the listed places and others, and if they don’t they will still find a way to make it for you! Just remember: don’t get drunk at brunch; it’s still a little early, there will be a happy hour blog!

That’s all for this brunch list, I think there’s something for everyone’s taste in their menus and if you have trouble getting there or want some company don’t hesitate to contact us. We can enjoy brunch together!
