If you're looking to show your BFF you care on their special day, why not take them out for their birthday?! Or if you would like to be treated, tag your BFF in the comments and be as passive aggressive as you like ;)
These 11 places are all super unique, so there is sure to be something on the list that your BFF would love.
And don't worry, you don't actually have to tell anyone you're getting older, unless you have already celebrated being twenty-two four times.
1. Kanpai Snack Bar // 252 Carlton St.
If you BFF is a bit of a foodie, Kanpai Snack Bar is sure to impress them. They will be impressed by your out of the box choice, and super stoked that they can get an amazing Insta!
2. Figo // 295 Adelaide St W.

3. Recess // 60 Sudbury St
Treat yo girl right with a boozy brunch. Recess is home to some amazing breakfast food that is sure to cure your BFF's hangover from the night prior, or she can just cure the hangover with a mimosa?
4. Java House // 537 Queen St W.
My broke babes, this one is for you! I get it, you spent too much at the bar and can't pick up a huge tab for our number 1's b-day. Java house is crazy cheap, and has awesome sangria and pad thai.
If you know me personally, this is where I want to go. Thx.
