Caracas, Venezuela, is home to an array of culinary wonders, from street-style empanadas, to spicy soups and delicious seafood. Brunch in the capital is a flavorful affair, with diners enjoying light breakfasts and small snacks before a day in the scorching city. From the chic and sophisticated to the rural and rustic, here’s our list of the top 10 brunch spots in Caracas.
The food at Catar is so delicious it is rated one of the best restaurants in the neighborhood by locals. The goat’s cheesecake with mulberry coulis here is tangy and tasty, and an innovative flavor combination. Diners will find an eclectic mix of food items on the menu here, and most are influenced by an Italian or North African flavor. There is a plethora of vegetarian options, and the venue’s furnishings evoke a quirky and creative atmosphere, featuring attractive geometric floral patterns and exposed brick walls.
Ideally situated next to both the Palace of Justice and the birthplace of Simon Bolivar, this budget Venezuelan eatery is in a prime location for brunch before venturing around the city. Set in a historic 19th century home with authentic decor from the era, La Ataraya is a great spot to experience Venezuelan architecture from the revolutionary period. The seafood soup here is particularly good.
Casa del Llano
Casa del Llano is one of the best spots for brunch, whilst also being a popular hangout for late night revelers making their way home from a night of dancing. The specialty here is the pancake with white cheese, and the cachapa llanera, a corn pancake stuffed with beef, cheese and avocado, is a scrumptious choice for a brunch snack.
La Casa del Llano, Avenida Rio de Janeiro, Las Mercedes, Caracas, Venezuela +58 0212 991 7342
Any trip to Caracas is not complete without trying the traditional arepa, a flatbread made of ground maize, and at El Budare you’ll find the very best. There is also a large selection of flavorful batidos, the local version of a fruit smoothie, and the La Reina Pepiada here is a toasted bun with chicken and avocado, and is unmissable. This is a top brunch spot to experience and savor the simple and wonderful flavors of a great country.
