Your Beirut City Guide to the Best Brunch in Beirut

Brunch is by far the best meal of the day. I mean, seriously, at what other meal can you fit pancakes and burgers in one meal?

The brunch scene in Beirut has definitely upped its game in recent years, with so many restaurants offering brunch as a standard option on their menu. Some specialize in brunches on weekends whilst others offer brunch every day either all day or during a specific time frame.

So I put together this list (in no particular order) to guide you through the ultimate spots for the best brunch in Beirut complete with great service, reasonable prices (quality vs. quantity, people!) and delicious food.

Your Beirut City Guide to the Best Brunch in Beirut

1. The Four Seasons Hotel

Breakfast at the Four Seasons Hotel is a MUST in Beirut. It’s not technically brunch, but more like a late-ish breakfast; I couldn’t exclude Four Seasons Hotel from my list! You are served by the most professional and hospitable staff members throughout your entire meal. Order from the set menu, however, I would definitely recommend you go all out and feast upon their international buffet filled with fresh fruits, jams and viennoiserie along with open à la carte. There’s no going wrong with this breakfast in Beirut.

By the way, there’s also a Sunday Lunch hosted by this 5-star hotel that is also a must try and worth every penny. Read more about my experience at the Sunday lunch at The Four Seasons Hotel Beirut.

When? Every day from 7am-11am

How Much? $40 USD per person for the open breakfast formula which includes “a la carte” dishes and a rich continental buffet.

Order Eggs Benedict topped with lush Hollandaise and smoked salmon (aka Eggs Royale); you’re in for a treat!

2. The Beazbee

The Beazbee is a chic restaurant, cafe and tea room all under one roof in Gefinor Centre, Hamra. You absolutely must pay this charming restaurant a visit for breakfast a la carte. From breakfast basics such as waffles and pancakes to the fancier Royal Eggs Benedict and the notorious Traditional Full English Breakfast complete with scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon and baked beans, The Beazbee offers delectable and mouthwatering dishes to satisfy anyone’s palate!

3. Laduree Beyrouth [restaurant closed]

A visit to Laduree Beyrouth should be on your list for a glamorous brunch in Beirut at least once if you haven’t already been! The Laduree Brunch formula is an absolute treat. A three-tier tray of viennoiserie, bread, butter, jam, and honey, eggs, cheese, fruit salad, juice, and a hot drink (I would go for their lush hot chocolate if I were you!) are all included in their brunch formula. On display, you have Laudree’s finest French macarons and patisserie. Indulging in dessert after brunch is a must.

No matter what you order, it’s bound to be delicious! Well, that’s why I included it in this Best Brunch in Beirut guide! Also, every 2 weeks, Frosty Palace creates a new burger specialty from brie and blueberry to foie gras burgers. You really HAVE to add this joint to your list for the best brunch in Beirut.

8. Deli Co.

Another Co. restaurant serving its guests the highest quality ingredients and freshest and simplest dishes in Beirut.

When? Monday to Sunday from 8am to midnight

How Much? Depends what you order since it’s a la carte; Average 45,000 LBP per person
