I understand that it’s difficult to crawl out of bed before 9 a.m., but what if you’re missing out on one of the greatest things in life—breakfast? Having a great first meal gives us energy and serotonin to get through the day. And, alright, consider it a form of self-care, best paired with a proper sleeping schedule.

If it isn’t really your thing because you have to optimize your time, at least try having one proper breakfast a week. If you’ve decided you’ll give it a shot, here are some quaint breakfast spots in Rockwell you might want to try.

Barcino

Desayuno is Barcino’s take on Spain’s hearty breakfast tradition by featuring a menu full of comfort food. And since Spanish food is almost similar to what we’re used to eating, expect familiar flavors from dishes like arroz caldo, salpicao, and even champorado among many others. You can enjoy a glass of cava here, too.

Paul

Opens at 7 a.m.

At this 130-year-old French boulangerie and patisserie, you’ll never go wrong with bread, sweetened pastries, and tea. If you want a bigger bite, try its lasagna and crepes.
