'While I still like to indulge once in a while, nowadays we are more than spoilt for choice when it comes to breakfast in the capital.
As an Australian, I take breakfast very seriously, so I wanted to share a few of my top restaurants and my go-to breakfast dishes at each of them.'
Dishoom is known as one of London’s best restaurants for brekkie with four locations in town (my favourite being Shoreditch). The crispy Ginger Pig bacon is placed between freshly baked naan, smothered in chilli-tomato jam, cream cheese, herbs and topped with a fried egg... It is always the most tempting thing on the menu and for that reason I’m yet to order anything else!
If you’re looking for something cultural, The Globe could very well be the place for you. Located on the Southbank, surrounded by plenty of bars, The Globe is the home of some major thespian activities! This summer, the venue is set to spoil us with some of the playwright’s best work including Romeo and Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night and King Lear. With celebrated industry names including Idris Elba, Judi Dench and Orlando Bloom often gracing the stage, you’ll certainly be in for a treat. Tickets are available from £5 and you can choose from an 8pm or midnight performance. Take a picnic, sit under the stars (with the blankets provided) and enjoy watching history inside one of London’s most iconic buildings.
What can I say? I love this place! Just a short walk from Notting Hill Gate, hidden away from the main strip is this homely café serving fiery dishes. From their Mexican Omelette to Shakshuka, there is sure to be something to tickle your taste buds. They even have four original takes on the renowned breakfast cocktail, the Bloody Mary, and their Bloody Maria will be sure to blow the cobwebs away, made with tequila, tomato juice, spicy tabasco and salt. The Smashed Avo is a frequent occurrence on Instagram and it tastes just as good as it looks.
Sitting on the stunning Regent’s Canal, this venue is hard to beat in the summer. At the weekends, they serve hungry locals their signature ‘Breakfast in Bread’ which sees a home baked sourdough loaf filled with all sorts of ingredients including vegetarian and smoked salmon options. The mighty ‘original’ perfectly combines smoked bacon, Cumberland sausage, roasted tomatoes, leeks, oyster mushrooms and spinach leaves - topped with a free-range egg and generously sprinkled with cheese then baked... HEAVEN.
If you’re not from London, this is a little off the beaten track. Situated in a residential street down the road from Arsenal station, you will usually find locals here. It was recommended to me by a friend and I have been a regular ever since. Matt, the owner, serves up great coffee as well as his version of Avo toast - Smashed avocado, rose harissa & a slab of chèvre or, if you’re feeling daring, ‘The Fondue’ - Gruyere, Red Nose Emmental, Ham, Béchamel and white wine sauce is impossible to look past. Sit back, relax with the locals and if it’s a sunny day, you’re in for a real treat.
