“Best food/coffee/atmosphere/internet connection in Beirut”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

I've been going to Brisk for the past 8 months. The atmosphere is great. Music on low and relaxing. Its a non-smoking environment and the coffee is from "Gloria Jean's". No my favorite, but definitely better than most other coffees in and around Beirut.
Their food is all organic with surprisingly delicious daily dishes that you don't expect to find in a coffee shop. You see alot of familiar faces in the coffee shop which only shows the loyalty of Brisk's customer base.

My recommendations:
- Adas Bi Hamod soup (lentils, lemon, potato, squash)
- Hazelnut Latte with Skimmed Milk and an extra espresso shot
- Chicken and Avocado sandwich
- Pumpkin Soup
- Chicken Alfredo

If you are in Lebanon for work, its a great place to chill after you're done with your meetings and catch up on some emails.

If you are in Lebanon for tourism, head to Brisk cafe for some coffee, healthy food and do some people watching... You never know what to expect there.

Enjoy!

“The healthiest food after home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

Brisk offers a wide range of organic food (sandwiches, salads, juices,...). do not miss Brisk's famous daily meals. Sometimes, you should add salt to the meal :)

“It's organic and delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2011

Brisk is located in a very central are of Beirut right on Hamra street. I always find myself heading there for breakfast or lunch. Their food is prepared fresh every day and best of all it's all organic, a trend that is only starting to pick up in Beirut.

The salads are generous in portion, the fetta wrap is a favorite of mine, and the cooked daily dish is a home away from home. Although it is a little on the pricey side compared to other restaurants, remember that you are paying for the healthier organic version here.
