This eternal classic set the trend for brunch in Palermo over a decade ago, and continues to be popular today, albeit with slightly higher prices. Olsen is well worth it, though, with its sleek Scandinavian decor and delicious brunch and drinks menus.

Birkin Coffee Bar
This chic café is located in Palermo Botanico, and is a sophisticated spot for a coffee and meal without breaking the bank. From frittatas and salads to granola or pastries, there’s something for everyone, and don’t forget the coffee or a glass of fresh OJ.
This café/restaurant/bar wears many hats but wears them all well. After a long night, head here for the hangover breakfast that dreams are made of. American style pancakes, breakfast burritos, and a bacon/egg/cheese bagel sandwich are served up every day of the week, and weekends see the addition of bagels with lox, French toast, a full American breakfast, and steak and eggs. Did we mention the Bloody Mary?
For a lavish brunch experience, come to UCO at the Fierro Hotel, which offers a set menu consisting of a glass of bubbly, yogurt with cinnamon granola, scones and breads and meats and cheeses, a main dish of either eggs Royale or an Irish fry-up, and finally a dessert and espresso. It may not be cheap, but it sure is delicious.
This charming and colorfully decorated Dutch-inspired restaurant offers delectable breakfast dishes ranging from the saintly to the indulgent. Go for the CoCo LoCo, yogurt with toasted coconut, banana, and toasted almond, or opt for waffles with ice cream and dulce de leche. Either way, it’s sure to be tasty.
