Everyone has heard the expression “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” But who says that you have to eat breakfast in the morning? After all, rules are made to be broken. So maybe you’re seeking a mid-week reprieve from the same-old boring lunch or just looking to spice up suppertime with something new. No matter the circumstance, we believe that breakfast is always a good idea, and we’re here with a few unconventional breakfast ideas to help carry you through the rest of your day.

Whether you just want to start your morning off on the right foot, or are treating yourself to a quick afternoon snack (dessert happy hour, anyone?) no one takes pastries to the next level like our friends at 43 & Co. One bite of their banana cream pie or a chocolate eclair and your day is sure to get instantly better. And while they do also serve up more savory dishes like their tasty chicken pot pie and tomato sardine puffs, we see nothing wrong in indulging your sweet tooth with a red velvet cupcake, morning or night.

Have a special function coming up? Skip the stale boxed lunch and instead fuel your entire guest list with the superfood-packed menu from Bowl’d Acai. Yes, their fresh smoothies, juices and acai bowls are perfect for breakfast, but they are even better as an afternoon pick-me-up – perfect for a marathon meeting or long conference day. Not to mention, their colorful, layered acai bowls are total ‘eye candy’. Oh, and did someone say “on-site smoothie bar?” These guys are catering pros, and are ready to roll up to your next special event inside, outside or curbside. Your guests are sure to be talking about this event for months to come.

Speaking of catering pros, the passionate team at Ritual Coffee Roasters has been killing the game at events all over town lately.
