London is packed with amazing spots for breakfast, lunch and dinner, from casual dining to award-winning, Michelin starred restaurants. Breakfast is our favorite meal of the day, so of course we must break down our top 5 breakfast spots in London. We’ve made sure to include the trendy and the traditional spots that you won’t want to miss.
Two words: avocado toast. Granger & Co. is a cute brunch spot in charming Notting Hill. Aside from avocado toast, menu favorites include ricotta hot cakes with banana and honeycomb butter and the acaí bowl. Try the brown rice and sweet miso porridge if you are feeling extra British.
For all of the healthy eaters out there, this is your spot! Take your pick from Farmacy’s selection of “Syringe Shots”. You can go easy on the taste buds with a “Beautify” shot with gogi berries, shizandra berries, silica & aloe vera. Or you can push your limits with the Fire Starter, comprised of ginger, turmeric, cayenne & lemon. If you’re not feeling Synringe Shots first thing in the morning, I can’t blame you. There are plenty of other yummy, yet healthy, items on the menu.
Enjoy your breakfast with a view at the “highest 24-hour restaurant in London”. Duck & Waffle is located in The Shard, the tallest building in London. At the top of the Shard, you can see for miles to all of England. Along with the breakfast classics, you can enjoy a prime selection of sweet and savory waffles. On the savory side, go for the duck waffle – crispy leg confit, fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup. If you’re feeling sweet, the caramelized banana waffle should be your go-to – homemade Nutella, vanilla ice cream and topped with nuts. The entire setting is a dream.
We know it’s not realistic to have a sit down breakfast every day, but that doesn’t mean breakfast should be ignored. Gail’s is the perfect fit for a quick breakfast or a munchie in between. The breads at Gail’s are baked fresh every day. You will have a hard time buying bread at the grocery store after tasting Gail’s. You can enjoy your toast with avocado and egg, smoked salmon, or cheese and jam. It makes for the perfect start to every morning.
This cheeky London spot will transport you to the 80’s. Here’s a snipit from their bio to show you just how much character it has. “The Breakfast Club was born in 2005 when we moved into a small cafe on D’Arblay Street in Soho, painted the front egg yolk yellow and filled the place with junk from our childhood bedrooms. The Lucky Trolls seemed to have worked”. Catch my drift? The Breakfast Club serves up your good, old fashioned breakfast staples – pancakes, eggs, bacon, chorizo and so much more. Grab a seat at the bar and make yourself at home!
What to do after breakfast? Of course, we have plenty of recommendations. You can hit the iconic London spots, explore Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle, or plan a date for high tea. London is your oyster!
