Get back in the rhythm with these breakfasts fit for any morning mood.

Now that we’ve been cooped up in our homes for what seems like an eternity, it’s time to get back some semblance of a normal routine. And by normal, I mean involving the outside world.

In our busy pre-COVID lives, breakfast was usually an overlooked meal. But now that most of us have become home bodies, it’s our chance to make a more enjoyable and serene experience out of the most important meal of the day.

Starting this month, Ayala Malls has your morning routine covered with Fresh Start. Select cafés and restaurants at Ayala Malls are now open starting at 7 a.m. for your breakfast needs.

What’s more is that until Nov. 22, U.P. Town Center and Alabang Town Center are hosting morning activities like Yogilates and dog walks to get you moving before or after breakfast. Can’t think of a better way to start the day.

Here, we’ve compiled a list of breakfasts to get you back in the morning groove. Whether you’re in the mood for a full-on power breakfast, something sweet, or just need some coffee in your system, there’s a fresh start for you at Ayala Malls.

Full throttle

Big day ahead? A filling breakfast is in order, and you’ll never go wrong with rice and hefty breakfast classics to truly break the previous night's fast. We recommend you head to every Tita's favorite spot, Café Mary Grace, and order a classic Pinoy bangsilog and tapsilog. Speaking of Mary Grace, wanna know what kind of Tita you are? Take our quiz.

Filipino breakfasts are definitely filed under Breakfasts of Champions.

Visit Café Mary Grace at Alabang Town Center, Ayala Malls Circuit, Ayala Malls Cloverleaf, Ayala Malls Feliz, Ayala Malls The 30th, Greenbelt, Serendra, and U.P. Town Center.

One sweet day

Some days just call for some sugar in the morning. Cafe Breton’s crepes are the perfect amount of sweetness that’s light enough for the AM, while still giving you that jolt of sugar-fueled energy. Alternatively, a pretzel from Auntie Anne’s is a great handheld breakfast while you’re taking a stroll.

Morning rush? How about a sugar rush before you dive into the day?

Visit Cafe Breton at Ayala Malls The 30th, Greenbelt, and TriNoma; and Auntie Anne’s at Alabang Town Center, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Ayala Malls Feliz, Ayala Malls The 30th, Glorietta, Market! Market!, TriNoma, U.P. Town Center, Ayala Center Cebu, MarQuee Mall, and The District Imus.

Livin’ la vida ensalada

Nothing feels like a fresh start more than a fresh, leafy breakfast. It's never too early in the day to make nutritious food choices, and Salad Stop’s wraps and salads are equal parts healthy and delicious. What's better is if your diet requirements specific ingredients, you can even make your own from their list of ingredients.

A healthy breakfast leads to healthy food choices throughout the day, they say.

Visit Salad Stop at Glorietta, TriNoma, U.P. Town Center, and Ayala Center Cebu.

A kick of caffeine

If you’ve fully adapted to your intermittent fasting routine, or are simply the kind of person that only has coffee in the morning, this is for you. There are endless coffee chain choices, but Bo’s Coffee offers a range of beans that hail from Sagada, South Cotabato, Mount Apo, and more for that unique local flavor.

Mornings officially start only after that first sip of caffeine.

On your way out after breakfast at Bo's we also recommend grabbing a bag of their coffee beans for your own mini-café at home.

Visit Bo’s Coffee at Bonifacio High Street, Glorietta, Ayala Center Cebu, Ayala Malls Central Bloc, and Centrio Mall. Visit Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at Alabang Town Center, Ayala Malls Circuit, Ayala Malls Cloverleaf, Ayala Malls Feliz, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Ayala Malls The 30th, Ayala Malls Vertis North, Bonifacio High Street, Fairview Terraces, Glorietta, Greenbelt, Trinoma, U.P. Town Center, Abreeza, Ayala Center Cebu, Ayala Malls Central Bloc, Ayala Malls Serin, Ayala Malls Solenad, Centrio Mall, Harbor Point, and MarQuee Mall.
