7 great spots to grab breakfast on a Sunday

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes, if you’re looking to eat out, it can be nearly impossible to find a restaurant open on a Sunday.

Loop rounded up some of the few food places that stay saving lives on a Sunday morning when you’re feeling for something a little fancier than your own scrambled eggs.

Here are seven places across Trinidad that you can grab breakfast on a Sunday morning:

 

Krave, Marabella

Krave offers a spectacular Sunday brunch that takes you “around the world” every week. Look out for Mexican food around Cinco de Mayo, or good old American cuisine around the 4th of July.

Krave’s Brunch around the World is $372 per person including taxes and charges, children under 12 are half price and those under 5 are free. For reservations please call 658-5728, 658-5726, WhatsApp 325-2870 or email reservations@kravedining.com

 

Dolce, San Fernando

Easily located on Cipero Street, Dolce is a bakery-turned-restaurant that serves up delicious, freshly baked breads, pastries and desserts to accompany your breakfast fare. We’ve had cupcakes for breakfast on more than one occasion. Dolce’s menu offers a range of standard breakfast options – omelettes, French toast, waffles and pancakes – with a twist – fresh, artisanal bread.

 

Peche Patisserie, Chaguanas

Peche Patisserie on Caroni Savannah Main Road offers up a rich, elevated take on breakfast with his beautifully presented and perfectly prepared menu. From the Eggs Norwegian to the Brioche French toast, you’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy in this quaint, illuminated space. For those who appreciate a boozier brunch, Peche uses fresh local juices to create some very special mimosas. Chef Khalil often takes the time to mingle with his guests; be sure to ask him about the furniture in the restaurant, which he makes himself.

 

French Press, Gasparillo

This was a special find. Tucked away on the top floor of Gasparillo Mall is a breakfast buffet that can make you postpone lunch to well after 3pm. French Press offers a breakfast buffet for $99 per person that features a live omelette station, a variety of bread and chokas as well as saltfish, cereals, baked goods and delicious coffee. Though the café doesn’t offer its usual coffee menu on a Sunday, if you ask nicely, you just might be able to order something off the board. 

 

Chocolate Bar Cafe, Santa Cruz

Chocolate Bar Café is our recommendation for a family breakfast outing. Nestled in the Santa Cruz Valley, Choclate Bar provides a natural, green space to enjoy a piping hot cup of cocoa tea. Chooclate Bar offers a variety of bakes – coconut, fried and roast – as well as omelettes and bagels. For the little ones, we highly recommend the chocolate pancakes. Proprietor Astride Saunders also owns local chocolate company Exotic Caribbean Mountain Pride which means that anything chocolate in this restaurant is GOLD.

 

San Antonio Green Market, Santa Cruz

Not too far from Chocolate Bar Café is a bustling community market space that also features food vendors. Get your fill of delicious arepas and empanadas from Antojos, or sample a variety of chutneys with your pholourie by Sabrina’s Chutneys. Carmelita Attong is there with black pudding and other meaty delights. Wash it all down with some fresh juices or hot chocolate while browsing the market stalls on site. The Green Market has a great ambiance and community spirit that will start your day off on the right foot.

 

Caffé del Mare, Chaguaramas

Breakfast by the sea - what a great way to start the day. Try not to get stuck at Caffe del Mare’s dessert showcase on the way to your seat. The coffee here is well worth the drive into the peninsula but the Caffe offers a variety of sandwiches, paninis, wrap and bagels along with their sweeter offerings. We highly recommend this spot for a romantic breakfast date.
