Brunch is the only socially acceptable excuse for day drinking
You love the breakfast selection, but you are not a morning person. We've got you covered. These five delicious places in the second biggest city of Slovakia, Košice, offer breakfast at lunch, or so-called brunch. There is nothing wrong about having your scrambled eggs with champagne at noon!
Republika Východu literally means 'The Republic of the East', and that is how the eastern metro-pole Košice is called. The whole concept of the place is quite humorous. For example, the menu is written in Eastern-Slovak dialect (but English menu is available too), full of inside jokes that only people from Eastern Slovakia get. But besides the unique concept, the place has an amazing location too. A summer terrace is literally in front of the Saint Elizabeth Cathedral. And I don't even have to mention that food and coffee are outstanding.
Pogo Urban Caffe is a very modern place with millennials “musts”, like an avocado toast or a flat white. But if you take a closer look at the menu, you will travel back to Slovak childhood. You can find here evergreens like “krupica”, a manna-kroup porridge topped with butter, sugar and cocoa, a profiterole “veternik”, or beloved open sandwiches, also very typical for Slovakia. I recommend the variation with a Slovak sheep cheese “bryndza”. And as a bonus, you can order your brunch any time of the day. Cool, right?
The idea of this place is to serve brunches all day long. They have many egg variations, served with fresh home-made bread. If you have a sweet tooth, no problem at all. Delicious cheesecakes and crepes are waiting for you. People love this place not just because of its tasty menu and great coffee, but also for its stylish interiors. Even though it is not located directly in the city center, it is always packed.
Dobré Bistro pays special attention to seasonal products. You can be sure they use only free-range eggs, most of the ingredients from the menu come from local farmers, and everything is made from scratch. Even granola! And you can enjoy your brunch completely guilt-free. Not only Dobré Bistro doesn't use white sugar, but you can also order everything in lactose-free or gluten-free options. Of course, raw and vegan brunch is available as well.
Mondieu offers a bright and spacious space in one of the buildings of the State Theater, directly at Hlavná Street, which makes it a perfect spot for your brunch date. Everything is made out of quality ingredients according to traditional recipes. They are trying to meet everyone's taste, so you can find here a sausage with eggs, as well as super healthy smoothie bowls. In the nice weather, you can enjoy your brunch from the summer terrace.
Brunch is like breakfast without an alarm. And everybody knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, if you are in Košice, make sure you don't miss these five delicious places to start your day right.
