Best Sunday Brunch in Town!
I’ve always wanted to eat at Lumiere and I’m glad that I got a tip from whipsmart that they actually serve the best Sunday brunch in town! My office is just in Ayala 6750 but not a lot of people knows about Lumiere. It is a best kept secret and it should stay that way because it only can accomodate a few people. It was a perfect b-day celebration for Momsy who is celebrating her 64th bday last Sunday. (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMSY!!) I’ll be sharing with you our awesome Sunday brunch experience @ Lumiere.
Excellent Bistro Ambiance. The place was small but what strike us the most is the ambiance of a homy feel to it. On Sundays, it’s like the expat community and only people in the know eat brunch here. I’m glad that we are able to catch a seat by making a last minute reservations. It also feels that most of the people know each other and we even saw Nina Tesoro owner of Kusina Salud eating brunch last Sunday.
Art is in the Air. It was able to convincingly integrate Art into the dining experience. Last Sunday, we were still able to catch the Scapular Nomad Gallery. A five-year long performance art gallery. A gallery worn daily by Judy Freya Sibayan, Curator, Performance Artist. I took pictures of the scapular here. On some months, there are actually photograph exhibits in this small quaint french bistro where you can appreciate them or buy them 🙂
Eat-all-you-can Fresh Green Salad and Potatoes. This is the first time that I’ve seen a restaurant offering this as part of the entire meal. It says on the menu above: “Generous Servings of Salad, Pomme Sautes, and Grilled Tomatoes”. On Sunday Brunch, Lumiere only serve set menus and most of them taste great 🙂 The only complaint that my mom had was it was too much cholesterol in one meal because of the eggs 🙂
Brunch Meal + Drink + Dessert + Coffee/Tea. You have to choose among 6 types of brunch menu. Among the choices, we loved the Egg Benedict, Baked Eggs with Foie Gras and Biscuit, and Steaks and Eggs (Yummy!). For the drink, Mimosa is a must try which is orange juice with Champagne. The brewed coffee and tea is a perfect way to end the meal. The dessert was not a winner although, they created a small cake for my mom and it was really good that it was immediately wipe out 🙂 All for P650/meal (net)!
– Lumiere is located along Makati Avenue and Ayala Avenue near the British embassy besides the PLDT building. It is soo small that people missed this secret place.
– Sundays serves Brunch. Tues-Saturday serves Ala Carte menu.
– Reserve @ 812-2976 because the place gets jampacked.

I only tried Lumiere once and was very disappointed. I have heard good things though, about their Sunday brunch, so I think it’s worth a shot. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
well the sunday brunch could go both ways too if you don’t like the eggs, hehehe
I’ve seen the menu and it looked interesting — but a bit on the expensive side. Around P650++ per head if I’m not mistaken?
I was surprised too! But we were there already, so we had to enjoy it 🙂 I think it is overpriced but it is the only resto serving the kind of food on sunday brunch.
Hi Anton! My husband Pol, googled Kusina Salud, and was surprised to find me part of your family brunch picture 🙂 Thanks 🙂 Have you been to Kusina Salud in San Pablo, Laguna or Salud! Bistro in Baguio (which we’re reopening next year in San Juan, MM)? Anyways, hope to meet you in person 🙂 I love Lumiere too! Susan, Neal, Baby and Coco are the best 🙂 Thanks for supporting such a great space!
They have the brunch on Saturdays too! =) Just came back from one…I must say the Quiche was a yum and the Mimosa has now been inspiring me to mix my OJ with champagne from now on…hehe.
thanks for this info on Saturday Brunch also 🙂 Interesting… and I’m missing this already that I plan to go back this coming weekend…
thanks, cathy bee for the info!
