SUNDAY is a day of the week when you can almost do anything — from attending church, reading a book to just staying in while watching your favorite film. The possibilities are endless, but what has become a Sunday practice these days is sharing good food and tales over brunch. For those who haven’t come across this word (I mean who hasn’t, right?), brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch eaten during late morning or early afternoon. The word itself already puts you on a giddy mood because there’s always something to love about waking up for Sunday brunch whether you’re a morning person or a late riser.
Café Marco, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu’s signature outlet is setting the brunch game on a higher level with its newest buffet special, Sunday Brunch+. Café Marco’s specialty brunch is making Sundays worthwhile with some music that perfectly sets the mood for a relaxing day ahead. Before anything else, Sunday Brunch+ is giving you two options. For a booze-induced brunch, you can choose Brunch n’ Bubbles offering free flowing wines, cocktails and other standard drinks. But if you’re only in it for the food then Brunch is the right option for you. It’s just as good, minus the booze.
Saying it’s more than just brunch, it’s a Sunday lifestyle, Sunday Brunch+ at Café Marco is also setting up a kids’ corner where they can join a myriad of activities that’s different every Sunday — from face painting, balloon twisting to a cooking class. Aside from these fun-filled activities for kids, there’s a Wellness Zone for adults as well who would want a complimentary five-minute treatment. Now for the best part about any brunch, SunStar Weekend highlights dishes and drinks from the Sunday Brunch+ spread that will surely leave you with a full stomach and a happy heart.
