Make getting up that little bit easier with our best breakfasts in London…
Breakfast – what used to be a rushed bowl of cornflakes before you leave the house has now become one of the best (and most exciting) meals of the day. Whether you’re an avocado aficionado or a fry-up fanatic, we’ve put together our best breakfasts in London for National breakfast week.
The Breakfast Club
There are a few Breakfast Club venues over the city and with good reason too. As the name suggests breakfast is their forte and when looking for breakfasts in London they don’t disappoint. Tea is served in chunky smiley face mugs and they’re not scared of big portions. This is breakfast how you like it at home – but way better. Don’t leave without trying their pancake stack and the potatoes on the full English are reason alone to head there.
Where: Multiple locations (see here)
This is a venue for the more health-conscious among us and serves a whole range of delicious wholesome porridges, mueslis and toasties. Alex Hely-Hutchinson’s scandi influence is evident in the clean, white decor and the coffee mugs – which don’t even have handles. Make sure you try one of their health bowls and a smoothie; it’s also rumored to do one of the best chai lattes in the city.
Where: 1 Neal’s Yard, London WC2H 9DP
Ask for Janice
Ask for Janice are a laidback bar and restaurant right in the hustle and bustle of Smithfield Market. Enjoy a freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and bowl of porridge with figs, hazlenut and honey for a healthy and delicious start to your day. The spot is cosy and chilled with comfy sofas and generous mugs of coffee. A great space to pop before work or to share with friends on the weekend.
Where: 50-52 Long Ln, London EC1A 9EJ
Darwin in the Sky Garden
If you are looking for breakfast with a view to start your day, look no further than Darwin. 36 floors up, the views alone make it one of the best breakfasts in London. Ingredients are seasonal and home-grown where possible and the laid-back but luxe vibe inspired by nature makes it perfect for a breakfast date both before work or on a Saturday morning. Choose from a continental buffet packed with muffins, pastries, cereals and fruits or a number of hot choices such as wild mushrooms on sourdough, smashed avocado on toast or a pancake stack.
Where: Level 36, Sky Garden, 20 Philpot Lane, London EC3M 8AF
Coppa Club London
You may know the Coppa Club for its pop-up igloos, but it also has one of the best breakfasts in London. Right on the riverside, it has amazing views all year round – be sure to sit outside when the weather is nice. The vibe is glam and chilled and they have a whole range of dishes from eggs benedict to toasted muffins, waffles and a delicious ‘super bowl’ packed with healthy grains, seeds and fruit.
Where: Three Quays Walk, Lower Thames St
