Breakfast dates are rare these days when friends and couples are most likely to sleep when the clock strikes 2AM. The result? They wake up in the early afternoon which, and nobody has to tell you this, messes up the body clock and your mood for the rest of the day. But why not try something new? Get out of bed early and have breakfast somewhere where they don’t serve ready-made, cheap burgers or anemic pancakes. Surprise yourself and jump-start your day with a sweet breakfast time in these restaurants.
