Where to have breakfast in London

Whenever visiting a new city, finding good food can become a bit tricky. You do not know where you are or what is near you, or even if the restaurants around you are worth it. The most important meal of the day, however, is pretty easy to manage and enjoy. You simply find a bakery or cafe you want to visit and start your day from there.

We have gathered some of the most delicious cheap-eat cafes for a great breakfast. Some of them are quite famous and a MUST when you are in London, while others are hidden gems that you would never think of visiting.


The Breakfast Club


By far the most famous breakfast spot in town. With more than 6 locations it is considered a must. The cafe pays homage to the John Hughes movie with posters on the walls, creating a warm and fun space. The dishes we recommend for you are the Salted Caramel Banoffee Pancakes and the Huevos Al Benny.
