Just had to share a story on London’s best breakfasts from Time Out magazine. The did a feature last April about the best place to find breakfast in London. I usually keep an eye on Time Out because it’s the best source for everything in London: theatre listings and reviews, concerts, restaurant suggestions, and interesting articles about many aspects of London life. This article will show you where to find variations on the famous English breakfast in all of London’s diverse neighborhoods.
I’ve had a number of amazing breakfasts in England. Typical English hotels and bed & breakfasts serve a wonderful sit-down breakfast. Some of my fondest breakfast memories hearken back to my travels in the U.K. I remember the excellent daily breakfast in the tiny basement room of the Avalon Hotel, the cozy home-cooked deliciousness of the Hardwick House in Stratford-upon-Avon, with the BEST. SAUSAGE. I have ever tasted, the Wassells House Bed & Breakfast in Cheddar, in which the middle-aged woman serving us told us to get our elbows off the table, and the Berkeley Arms Hotel in Berkeley, with a blazing hot breakfast and coffee so caffeinated I got an amazing amount of work done every morning. Heck, even the dormitory where I stayed on study abroad trips served a cafeteria-style English breakfast, complete with toast, eggs, bangers, potatoes, tea, and coffee, all with that sub-average cafeteria quality. Oh… now I want to go back to London even more.
