Don’t worry about a heavy meal in Europe, you’ll walk it off soon enough.


Brunch-hop through Antwerp with the following four restaurants, all within spitting distance of each other. Grab a coffee and pastry at Barnini, walk a block north to Horta Grand Café and try a bellini and smoked salmon while you stare at the gorgeous architecture. Head west, just a block, to De Foyer, where you can have a crepe inside the foyer of a 19th-century theater. Save room for a gluten-free sandwich at Lombardia, which has been preparing vegetarian food since 1972 (pictured).


You’ll need a good meal after all that clubbing, so try Anna Blume; come for the marinated vegetables and scrambled eggs, stay for the beautiful mural and light fixtures (pictured). At beer-friendly Café am Neuen See, you can order a breakfast tier, which includes different layers of eggs, cheeses, and toast with jam—it’s located in the beautiful Tiergarten park. Tiers are apparently a thing in Berlin; Café Einstein Stammhaus also offers them, along with omelets and all-day cocktails. Reservations might be needed at Café Morgenland, which serves up Middle Eastern food that’s gobbled up as soon as it’s set down.


In Copenhagen, there’s no shortage of places to fill up between the magic hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. You can multi-task and head to The Laundromat Café, and do a load while you caffeinate and email (pictured). If you want something a bit more hipster-upscale, try Lyst, where you can see what pancakes taste like with a pint. If that’s not your thing, amble over to Canteen, with its stark white interior and legendary brunch, which includes new potatoes, eggplant caviar, and a heaping bread basket.


The center of Scandinavia may not be a brunch capital, but the restaurant at the Modern Museum serves a grand Sunday meal, buffet-style. Hotel Rival, owned by ABBA member Benny Andersson, also has an amazing brunch, with breads, cheeses, salads, gravlax, and steak tartar with egg yolk. If you want to blow it out, hop on the three-hour brunch cruise that sets sail aboard the S/S Stockholm every Saturday and Sunday at noon. Pace yourself, matey (pictured).
