Breakfast Barn: A Superb and Unique Morning Experience in Beirut (Restaurant Closed)
A Breakfast Paradise in Beirut
Breakfast Barn or as far as I'm concerned 'A dream come true' is the first restaurant in Lebanon dedicated to the day's most important meal: "breakfast"! It's called Breakfast Barn and it encourages you to eat better, healthier and happier. Soothing music, warm lights, bright wood, pure lines, white walls, it's breakfast like I usually experience at concept eateries out of town.
I ordered an Americano coffee which was a true Americano: a double espresso and hot water - not many places understand this.
It's when photos speak for themselves and when two hours pass and you feel like staying for another hour. Breakfast barn is a must try experience in Beirut hoping to have more locations open in the near future.
And I enjoyed breakfast...
A thick pain de campagne with a soft heart and crunchy crust topped with crumbled goat cheese and slices of dried figs, each decorated with a line of honey. The whole thing was sprinkled with sesame. Loved the bread quality, the smoothness of the cheese, the fig's texture and surely and most importantly the dish's color, presentation and generosity. The avocado look really nice! A spread of mashed avocado sprinkled with whole almonds and pomegranates, a loaded sandwich where each of the ingredients add value. Full of nutrients, it's an interesting plate. The chia jars are awesome! It's a jar loaded with nutritive items from crunchy nuts, to chia seeds, fresh fruits and honey to add the sweetness you need. Loved the cashew nuts, the thinly sliced bananas, the almonds, dried raisins and much more. The simplest of things and surely the best - in my opinion - is the yogurt cup. A super duper very flavorful yogurt cup served with your choice of add-ons on the side. A big bowl with one of the tastiest yogurts I've tried to date even before adding the ingredients one at a time. Berries, mighty granola, star berries, mango, dates, dried figs - the list goes on and on. I enjoyed it so much - this cup that reminded me of every breakfast I've had in a hotel abroad... I was feeling happy and proud to have a real Breakfast Barn in town.
Ciabatta Labneh: I'm not sure if my words are reflecting my real feelings. I'm rarely impressed, I'm rarely amazed... these sandwiches left me speechless! The bread is out of this world, the Labneh is outstanding; the way it's mixed with pesto, Labneh Barn style... OMG! What did you do to Labneh... this sandwich is extravagant! Some amazing acidic and light Labneh topped with sliced kumquat, crunchy pistachios, soft raisins and a dash of superb olive oil. It's really Waw! Never imagined screaming for a Labneh sandwich! Two thumbs up guys.
Salmon, Avocado, Eggs, figs, cakes, and jars... everything at Breakfast Barn is delicious.
