Pour one out for Shams Al Balad brunches. The good news is that El Maqha is serving some of your Shams favorites in their new a la carte, self-service cafe.


Sure, the hours at Le Petit Cafe might not be the most ideal, but their croissants are top-notch. Who does it better than the French when it comes to breakfast pastries? We’ll wait.


Fornaldar takes your favorite manakeesh to the next level. We can’t stop dreaming about their eggplant and zaatar manakeesh topped with their homemade marinara.


What’s better than the smell of fresh baked bread? Eating it from Foron Rex. Baked daily, their breads and pastries are some of the best in Amman.


Daimeh takes the classic Arabic breakfast to the next level with the freshest ingredients and innovative combinations. We love their Arabic-style avocado toast featuring sourdough Ka’ak, avocado spread, feta, sumac, and more. Add a poached egg and you won’t be sorry.


So you’ve probably blacked out at Reds at least once, but we bet you haven’t tried their weekend brunch. Each weekend the folks at Reds offer a themed brunch (think Greek goodness or all-American style).


Where do we even begin with Gaia Brunch to Aperitvo’s brunch? First of all, their salted caramel french toast is practically a religious experience. Second of all, for those of you craving a bloody mary, make sure to try their extra spicy bloody mary — it’s the best in town.

Fresh and organic is the name of the game with Yanboot’s Saturday brunches. From your classic Arabic breakfast faves to moussaka and date cake, you’re sure to have one heck of an organic brunch. The best part? If you’re too hungover from the night before to leave your bed, you can have it delivered to your house.


If you’re craving some seriously phenomenal french toast, then you need to head over to Namilyeh in Al-Weibdeh. Every weekend they serve fluffy french toast topped with their incredible, homemade natural jams and other fresh toppings. It’s not to be missed!
