Good breakfast place at Heathrow Terminal 5?

Will have a layover at Heathrow Terminal 5 - any good breakfast place there?

  1. Here's a link to all the choices. To be honest, I've been there many times, and there's no particularly great place for breakfast. If it's possible, I'd walk through the terminal to the Sofitel Hotel (connected) and eat there. It's a lovely place if you have time.,-...

    1. I think Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food is a good option:

      It is also on the list of the world's top airport-based eateries:

        Maybe nice food, but the prices are a bit high just for breakfast... almost £20 for a full English. I wish I had an expense account or my husband still did. :-)

          That *is* rather expensive! I'd quite forgotten how much I paid for my breakfast there whilst waiting for my flight to Edinburgh last year. Just remembered I had very good smoked salmon & scrambled eggs.

            Next time, you can come to our house for lox and eggs. I've been cooking that for many years - learned from my father and grandmother. It'll be cheaper than Gordon's and mine is better. :-) The lox is so expensive in NY, but here it's so nice to find it in every supermarket.

              I'll look forward to that, June :-)

      2. Is there a Cocoyama there now? If so, good pastry options.

        Otherwise, Plane Food is the way to go.

          I didn't see Cocomaya on the list. If it is, I'll certainly buy some goodies to take on my plane ride coming up!
