Thing ticked boxes, fruit, bacon, sausage, eggs, croissants, coffee, and roughage. So let us help you find the coolest place to start your day. Here's our guide to London's best breakfasts.

Duck and Waffle

First things first. Who doesn't want to be starting the day with a decent breakfast and views over London? Duck & Waffle has become one of the most sought after reservations in the whole of the city and with views stretching out over London, you can see why. The restaurant is open 24 hours (yup, you read correctly!) so turning up before sunrise and settling in for breakfast is a must.

Polpo (Soho)

Who wouldn't want pizza for breakfast? Polpo Soho is gaining popularity and spreading fast thanks to its Venetian bàcaro menu. Polpo describes itself as "bàcaro" a Venetian word meaning a humble restaurant serving simple and good food and this certainly is the case. The warm lighting and relaxed atmosphere make Polpo a great place to relax ad unwind whilst it gets cold and grim outside. If you're after an affordable breakfast, then head over to a little bit of Venice in London.

100 Wardour Street

Along with most places, 100 Wardour Street offers you a bottomless brunch and your standard breakfast (served from 8am – 11:30am). The menu is considered and sophisticated, with surprising flavours and complete, mouth-watering attention to detail.

Sexy Fish

Sexy Fish. The restaurant from the people who brought you The Ivy and J. Sheekey has launched a new brunch menu every Sunday, where the music, food and cocktails flow from 11.30 – 4pm. Sexy Fish have ensured there is enough bespoke twists to keep you wanting more. So let's not look at the old classics, but more so the new adaptations' of the classics.


Sketch. Your answer to an Instagram-worthy hashtag of a breakfast. Sketch may be a little bit out of your budget to become your 'regular', however, this is definitely a place you can name-drop and Instagram to your heart's content. Sketch offers both breakfast and brunch, if you're after something that little bit "egg-xtra".
