The 10 Best Brunch and Breakfast Spots In Sfax, Tunisia

Ellie Philpotts

Perhaps you might associate Sfax more with its nightlife than its brunch, after all, it’s home to plenty of bars for energetic parties, not to mention restaurants for high-end dinners. But what about something more genteel to recover the following morning?


1. Pacha


You’ll be spoiled for choice in this lovely hotel, as it’s dotted with restaurants and cafes, a blend between high-end and more casual relaxation. There’s a very comfortable feel no matter where you decide to eat, and key spots to lounge around, enjoying a leisurely breakfast and soaking up both the views and the heat. All-round impressive hotels are only improved by good food, so Pacha is definitely up to standard.

The breakfasts here might not be the most varied, but the food is so good it doesn’t matter. The high quality is thanks to the market links, bringing Tunisian traditions to the forefront. Hotel Les Arcades stands out amid the tirade of somewhat cloned-looking hotels, as it’s more individual with a charming yet modest feel. Its somewhat old vibe actually makes for a refreshing place to enjoy your first meal of the day.

Restaurant Afandi

Got a sweet tooth? The staff at Restaurant Afandi will be pleased then, as it means you’ll be spending a fortune! There are so many options for those with a sweet tooth here at Afandi. Make yourself known within their supreme patisserie section, with authentic North highlights including mohalabiyeh, a luscious Lebanese dessert that doubles as a sweet breakfast, baklawa, a rich pastry featuring nuts, syrup, honey and Middle Eastern filo dough; and aish saraya, a cream slice again originating from Lebanon. And don’t worry if you’re watching the waistline (or attempting to) they also do lighter sorbets and fruit.

You could spend all day at this place and you actually could, as its opening hours extend to evening meals and lunches as well; that’s where brunch also comes in handy. From salads to soups, salmon to sandwiches, and the odd morsel that doesn’t begin with S, you’ll definitely be satisfied at Ed Diwane. Perhaps the stars of the menu are the marinated shrimp, fresh fruit baskets, apple tarts or more savory cheese plates, though perhaps not altogether!

La Maison Salma really is a fantastic location to bond with whomever you’re with, over a filling breakfast. Mind you, breakfast is likely to overlap into brunch, then even into lunch itself, because the food here is so plentiful and plainly delicious. You’ll get the 5-star treatment, and Tunisian food is a specialty. Pay attention the architecture’s intricacy as well, as it all contributes to a more cultural eating experience.

6. El Kakena


El Kakena

El Kahena is a specialty lodging more than a glossy hotel that doubles as a brunch restaurants, but it is well worth considering if you’re searching for somewhere that breaks the normal mold and still provides a great breakfast in the morning. It’s bed-and-breakfast-esque in the sense that breakfast is included, and it’s good breakfast at that. It has been described as “a jewel on the Tunisian coast.”

Tea Room

Salon de The Cheers

Universally, tea is enjoyed for many reasons. Whether a caffeinated cuppa in rainy London or herbal mint in cultural Sfax, it’s a great way to either perk you up mid-afternoon or get you going when you wake up. Here, we’re considering the latter, and Salon de The Cheers is the prime place to do it. The tea room also serves pastries and crepes loaded with nuts, chocolate or fruit, as well as coffees, juices and smoothies.

Darling Coffee serves stacks of waffles and pancakes and if that wasn’t enough they’re adorned with tropical fruit, whipped cream and sprinkles. If you fancy something more sophisticated, try the continental styles like ham, cheese, bread and cappuccino. Oh and the sandwiches, stacked high, might take some time to eat, but they’re worth it as the perfect brunch.
