There’s nothing like waking up to the smell of freshly baked man’oush zaatar that makes us jump out of bed with a big smile of anticipation or to the thought of a warm kaakeh b knefe‘ promising a good energetic start of the day.

The fact is, our breakfasts could be addictive; the more we enjoy them the more we want to reiterate the delicious experience, even if it means having them any time of the day! And here are the top 12 of them:

#1 Foul Mdammas

#2 Man’ouche zaataar or jebneh

#3 Labneh with toasted bread and olives
