5 Of The Best Breakfasts In London

Deliciously Instagramable


We don't know about you but breakfast is our second favourite meal of the day - after brunch which is practically the same thing anyway.

So it will come as no surprise that this epic daily ritual is celebrated in a huge way at J&L HQ. Forget Christmas, Hanukah and Valentine's - its all about National Breakfast Week.

From the 24th - 30th January, National Breakfast Week will be taking place up and down the country.


The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the wealth of wonderful breakfast produce in the UK.

So what better way to celebrate than by giving you the low down on our favourite London breakfasts?

For The Egg Lover: Granger & Co


Known as the egg master (great title), Bill Granger is the champion of breakfast and has built an international empire on his scrambled eggs and ricotta hotcakes alone.


The All Day Graze: Rawduck


One of the most celebrated brunches in Hackney, Rawduck’s breakfast and brunch takes a magpie approach to breakfast featuring flavours and styles from around the globe 

The Indulgent Breakfast: Lobster Bar


Lobster for breakfast – yes, please! We are real fans of the Lobster Benedict, indulgent but totally delicious


The ‘Continental’: Casa Brindisa


Hands up, this is misleading. Cast your minds away from the cold cuts and prunes of the 80s continental buffet.

Anywhere we can eat doughnuts before noon (we’re looking at you, Churros con chocolate) and call it breakfast is a winner for J&L. We also love their take on a Spanish full English - Ole!

The New Kid On The Block: Kricket


We know, we know - Dishoom does excellent breakfasts and don't get us wrong, we love their bacon naan, but Kricket is the new name to know. Get their Duck Egg bhurji with smoked haddock and a Spiced Rum Masala Chai to wash it down - unbelievably good!
