Best Full English Breakfasts in London Highlights
Regency Cafe has been going since 1946 (the original tiling is still intact), is probably one of the most famous greasy spoons in town thanks to it appearance in several films and TV shows. It’s excellent value too with the standard brekkie coming in at just over a fiver. Easily one of the best full English breakfasts in London.
Located in Borough Market, Maria’s Market Cafe is almost as iconic as the market itself. Maria began working there aged seven and has been running the joint ever since. This is the place for a big brekkie – don’t skip the bubble & squeak – a mug of strong tea and a lively atmosphere. Using ingredients sourced from nearby Smithfield and Borough Markets, Terry’s Cafe serves traditional home cooked meals, including a famous fry-up. Choose between ‘the standard’, ‘the works’ or ‘the blowout’. The Hoxton Grill restaurant inside The Hoxton, Shoreditch hotel hits the spot with their half, full, or veggie fry-ups. Available as early as 7am, this is one for early risers. There’s plenty of strong cofee and tea available too.
The Ginger Pig Cafe in Hoxton is the place to go if you want a hearty and high quality fry-up. The menu is short and sweet (saves you wasting time trying to choose what to order), all ingredients are sourced locally and it won’t cost an arm and a leg. We always gravitate towards the bacon and egg naan but Dishoom also does a pretty bangin’ fry-up, with a Bombay twist of course. You get spiced scrambled eggs, masala baked beans and buttered buns alongside your bacon, sausages, mushrooms and tomato.
