What's the best breakfast in London

Best english breakfast in London

The fine tradition of "Full English" has stood the test of time and these cafes and restaurants are some of our favorite spots to try the best English breakfast in London, all washed down with tea or coffee. Hawksmoor Guildhall Restaurant, Steakhouse, $$$

Courtesy of Hawksmoor Guildhall Hawksmoor Guildhall is ambitiously aiming to offer "the best full English breakfast in London" and they do well. The steak house is worth the extra cost and delivers both quality and quantity. Lots of dark wood and leather give this place a cozy, old world. The extensive breakfast menu includes a traditional full English breakfast and the more elaborate two-person Hawksmoor Breakfast, which features some of the less traditional breakfast options such as short rib bubble and squeak, as well as grilled bone marrow. Complete the experience with a traditional Buck's Fizz or Bloody Mary and enjoy an extravagant breakfast.

Casual, Quirky Regency Cafe Cafe, British, €€€

Regency Cafe London | © Flickr The Art Deco café, which opened in 1946, is the embodiment of retro Britishness. Formica tables, brown seats, and tiled walls might sound a bit slicker than silver spoons, but this place was voted London's 5th best restaurant by Yelp users in 2013 and was in the movie known layer cake (2004). The full breakfast is huge and very cheap at £ 5.50, and the sausages are particularly good. Extras are 90p each and definitely worth a few bubbles and squeaks or hash browns. The only downside to this amazing place is that they aren't open on Sundays so maybe try it as a midweek pick-me-up or a Saturday treat instead.

Stylish English cafe, British, $$$

The Winston | © Brightly Coffee, Twitter Something about the British breakfast brings war nostalgia in everyone. The Blighty UK Café is cozy, bright and modern. The 1940s details run through, from menu designs to shelf displays. This place prides itself on great coffee, and their full breakfast, aptly named "The Winston," is a huge help for £ 9, served in whimsical enamel bowls and measuring boxes. The attention to detail is what makes this place so special, from the Union Jack in the sausage to the peppers on the eggs. The food is divine and the decor even more. Bread is baked on site, and if you dress in 1940s style, get 5% off your bill. This place is a real gem.
