London: breakfast and brunch...
What are your latest and greatest for the first meal of the day?
Previously we have enjoyed nice breakfasts at The Table and a cracking brunch of Turkish eggs at Kopapa. Still on the "to try" list is Modern Pantry and Caravan.
Where do you head for a killer breakfast? It needn't be posh or even a sit down affair.....anything you grab from street vendor/market stall/hole in the wall etc.....all recs much appreciated.
Caravan is stellar, very interesting brunch and superb coffee. Dubious service but we can all deal with that at brunch.
St Ali more excellent coffee, had the most extraordinary pumpkin muffin there.
Modern Pantry is interesting and good - I know what dcatki means though.
The Gate does interesting vegetarian brunch but quite a limited menu.
St John Bread and Wine
The Wolseley and the Delaunay are not for every day but wonderful places to go once every so often.
As always, I'll offer up this website for breakfast reccs - and a right good read.
My best pick from them - Diana's Diner, Endell Street (near Covent Garden). Superb greasy spoon.
I'd also add in the caff at Borough Market (Maria's) which will serve you up the full fry-up complete with the London speciality of bubble & squeak.
And, assuming you are happy to regard the Brentford/Kew border as London ('tis all the same to us northerners), then the Bridge Cafe, just off Kew Bridge, does the fullest of full breakfasts for around a fiver. And does a very good looking Polish breakfast (which I've not yet tried) - which seems to be the standard Brit fry-up plus fried onions and chips.
Tough to find in London...
St Ali/Workshop Cafe for the beans on Toast
Caravan for the honey roasted muesli (I add salt for some reason)
G&T for the veggie breakfast
Great eggs at the Pavilion Cafe in Victoria Park
Modern Pantry always good for brunch but I don't crave anything there
Banana bread at Salvation Jane
Porridge at St John Bread & Wine
Breakfast/brunch looks good at This Bright Field but haven't tried
The pizza in the schoolyard at broadway market
Lebanese bread in brockley farmers market
Kopapa on my to try list
Another vote for Caravan -- I've had better meals att the King's Cross branch but haven't done any systematic comparison; is there any difference in quality between the two?
Also like Workshop Coffee in Clerkenwell.
If only they were open earlier, Royal China Club for dim sum.
Anyone tried the breakfast at Maltings Cafe?
