The Best Places for Breakfast in the UK

egg on toast with dripping yolk breakfast

It’s the most important meal of the day, but it’s also amazing how many of us skip this daily tradition. Breakfast can be glorious, a bright start to the drudgery of our usual existence – gone are the days where a greasy fry up dripping with fat and stale bread will cut it.

Don’t get me wrong, the full English is still alive and well, as is the great cup of tea, but there are a number of places taking the best way to start your day to the next level.

Next time you go to make yourself a dry piece of toast or pop into your local coffee chain for an overpriced milky mess, why not check out one of these destinations for the best breakfasts in the UK?

The Wolseley, London

Not only a London institution when it comes to breakfast but a British institution, this all-day brasserie opens at 7am to serve hungry Londoners with a taste for the high life.

This is the place where notoriously difficult to please restaurant critic AA Gill enjoyed his breakfast so much, he decided to write a book about it (Breakfast at The Wolseley).

And not only that, the grade II listed building, which grandly stands out among the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly serves over 1,000 dishes a day, so you know they must be doing something right.

Check out the omelette, the delightful crumpets with hot melted butter and many more highlights of what is a classic breakfast menu. And if you fancy doing some sightseeing while you’re there, check out our hotels in London.

Market Diner, Brighton

For those that enjoy their breakfast while everyone else is sleeping, the Market Diner is the perfect antidote to a heavy night out.

Open 24 hours a day and a favourite for late night revellers and night shift workers, the Market Diner is famous for one certain type of breakfast… The Gut Buster.

Featuring bacon, burger, eggs, mushrooms, fried toast, black pudding, chips, tomatoes and beans, this is not a breakfast for the faint of heart, but rather the large of appetite.

And where else do you sleep off all that breakfast? In one of our Brighton hotels of course.

Truffles, Cardiff

A mere stroll from the castle and somewhat of a legendary establishment in Cardiff, Truffles has been a fixture in the Welsh capital for 23 years. The full English is a joy to behold while those with a sweet tooth can peruse the fully stocked cake cabinet!

And our hotels in Cardiff are the ideal base from which to explore the city (and Truffles) so what are you waiting for?
