Restaurant group with many locations in London. you can find The Breakfast Club in places such as Liverpool Street, Soho, Old Street and many more. I prefer the one at Old Street. It was the first breakfast club I ever visited and is really unique, Must order The all American Breakfast, Pancakes with ham, cheese, fried runny egg and maple syrup on top.

This yellow cafe is sort of like walking into a Pinterest board, in the best way. Breakfast options are pretty cheap and include eggs, sourdough toast, avocado, porridge, yoghurts, sourdough toasts, and Scottish smoked salmon and cream cheese. There's a selection of regular cakes, and usually gluten-free and vegan cakes, too. They have great coffee and a selection of leaf teas. It's also a great place to find a gift like a coffee table book or card. And it's not unusual to find a little queue here on the weekend.

This little delight is my favourite local coffee shop - you'll often find me tucked in a corner amongst all the WWII themed art with my head in my notebooks, I go there whenever I want a bit of me-time within walking distance from home. Chilled atmosphere, great coffee and breakfasts and lovely staff. If the weather is good, be sure to check out their outdoor seating area hidden away upstairs.

Floor-to-ceiling glass windows greet you as you take your first step into this cosy cafe at the top of St. John’s Hill. You’ll instantly be met with a warm smile and the lovely smell of coffee. This place is wifi-free, so nestle in with a book, notebook, or sketch pad, and be open to making a new friend or two. My favourite thing about Story Coffee isn’t actually the coffee, although it is second to none. It is their matcha lattes that have me coming back, and the darling handmade mugs that they are served in. A real place for peace and quiet, along with all-day brunch, tucked just out of the craziness of Clapham Junction. Win.

South Tottenham has become one of the neighbourhoods to where the real Londoners escape. So one day we decided to get out of the train station and asked a couple of people "Where do you go to have a good breakfast & to work during the day?" The answer was unanimous: Craving Coffee! We can vouch for their Osaka omelette made with beansprouts, spring onion, sesame, and sriracha.

This is not just a breakfast spot; let's call Brew a cultural hub. They show movies at La Luna Cinema, they organize ping pong tournaments, they help you find exercise buddies. But still, the food is the ultimate winner! Ham, Gruyere, vine tomato, poached eggs & pesto served on toasted pide is a must try!"

One of my favourite spot for a delicious cup of grub. The coffee is really tasty and everything else from coffee to cake selection is authentically Australian, including the staff, a great way to escape London for a few minutes.

For those antipodeans like me, this is a little slice of kiwi nostalgia in the middle of Putney. In addition to an excellent menu and coffee to rival the best Ponsonby cafe, there are down-under favourites like L&P to satisfy everyone. Try the Breakfast Burrito, it won't disappoint!

One of the best brunches in London. The staff here are the friendliest bunch you'll meet, and the beautiful tiled interiors make this somewhere that you can while away a couple of hours alone with a book, or with friends over a coffee and cake.
