Whether you're stumbling in after a drunk night out or stepping in before work in the morning, Polo Bar has what you need: breakfast all day errry day. See, this place is open 24 hours a day, serving brekkie and alcohol at all times. So if you wanna go fancy with a champagne brunch or dirty with a pint and a full English, you can get it here. If you're wanting something a little more... transatlantic, their American breakfast combines everything that is great about American food: pancakes, maple syrup, hash browns, streaky bacon. And if you're not feeling an all-day breakfast then there are other light bites and dinners you can try but you should try a breakfast at least once - it's what they excel at.
Where is it? 176 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4NQ Great Britain
How much is it? Pretty much all the breakfasts will cost you under £10, which is an absolute barg in our eyes.
The name of this place might be slightly misleading, because Bad Egg is anything but. Their all-day breakfast has eggs every which way, as well as some interesting Mexican twists on a classic breakfast - Huevos Rancheros and breakfast tacos stand out in our minds. If you like your eggs with a bit of spice, this is your kind of place. And if you don't have time to sit in the restaurant, you can sample their takeaway breakfast menu, which has plenty of choice. NOM.
Where is it? City Point, Moorgate, EC2
How much is it? A Huevos Rancheros will set you back £9.50, but most other meals on the brekkie menu are cheaper.
Riding House Cafe
For those who often have breakfast meetings around Oxford Circus, Riding House Cafe will likely be a familiar haunt. It doesn't have a huge selection of breakfasts but what they do do is made to perfection. They take a classic and make it classy - for example, their pork and beans consists of slow-roasted pork shoulder, barbecue beans and fried eggs. It will set you back in terms of costs, with a simple avocado on toast coming in at £6.50, plus more for a side of eggs.
Where is it? 43-51 Great Titchfield Street, London, W1W 7PQ
How much is it? Well, it ain't cheap, but it sure is worth the treat to self - once you try the chorizo hash from the brunch menu, the £12 will seem worth it.
You can already tell by the name of this one that it's a super trendy place - the website is so chic in fact that it contains no information! - but luckily the food at M1LK still puts substance over style. The kurdish eggs are killer and, in true hipster fashion, it caters to those who are gluten intolerant. Banging.
Where is it? 18-20, Bedford Hill, London, SW12 9RG
How much is it? Sweetcorn fritters with bacon will set you back around £10, and most food starts with a base which you can add to for an extra cost.
Tried and True
Based in Putney, Tried and True is perfect if you're trying to keep it healthy but need your breakfast fix. Organic eggs, toasted muesli with greek yoghurt and porridge is there for those who don't want to over-indulge, whilst those hungry for a big breakfast should try the pulled pork eggs benedict: Spice rubbed 15-hour roasted pork shoulder, tossed in hickory hoisin sauce, served on homemade jalapeno cheddar cornbread & topped with two poached eggs, chilli butter & spring onions. There are no words.
Where is it? 279 Upper Richmond Road, Putney, SW15 6SP
How much is it? Prices are rather standard, but if you fancy splashing out on the pulled pork eggs benedict (which you definitely should), it'll cost you £13. Ouch.
My Old Dutch
If you live in London it's highly likely you've already been to My Old Dutch. Dotted around several spots in central London, MOD is undeniably one of the best places to go for pancakes at any time of the day. They do old classics like banana and nutella, which must be tried at least once in your life, but if you're not fancying the sweet stuff, they also do savoury pancakes - chilli con carne and lamb curry are two of the weirder ones, but worth trying if you're feeling adventurous.
Where is it? Holborn, Chelsea and Kensington
How much is it? The sweet pancakes avergage out at around £8.50, but the savoury prices go much higher.
If you've always had a hankering to try the American classic of fried chicken and waffles, then The Lockhart is the place for you. Chef Brad McDonald is a Mississippi native, and so his classy breakfasts have a hearty southern twist - shrimp and grits, for example. The restaurant itself has a quirky, classic feel with all the furniture hailing from vintage antique markets. Decor and desserts for breakfast - what a time to be alive.
Where is it? 22-24 Seymour Place, London, W1H 7NL
How much is it? We won't sugarcoat it: The Lockhart is expensive. Eggs Benedict are priced at £10.50, and it's only up from there, but you are paying for a seriously top quality brekkie.
This is breakfast with a twist. With options like wild mushrooms & poached eggs on grilled seaweed bread and avocado, feta & olives on grilled sour dough with poached eggs & chorizo on the menu, it's safe to say if you're not adventurous, you'll totally want to be at Apero. With delicate flavours and calm surroundings, this is the ideal place for Sunday morning brunch.
Where is it? 2 Harrington Road, London, SW7 3ER
How much is it? Pretty standard prices - eggs benedict will set you back about £8.50, which isn't bad for a South Kensington eatery. Pull up a pew already.
Brew is a modern, clean place for your morning eats, but luckily for all of us the breakfast doesn't stop at 11am. It has something to cater all tastes - even coco pops, if that takes your fancy - but the turkish eggs are the winner in this place. The toasted banana bread with hung honeyed yoghurt and pistachios is a close second for those with a sweet tooth. Plus, the staff are lovely and the place feels nice and homely.
Where is it? There's a few dotted around south of the river, in Wandsworth, Wimbledon and Battersea.
How much is it? It's expensive, but the detail that goes into the making of these breakfasts is an utter tastebud treat. Buy now, think later is our motto for this place.
The Breakfast Club
You don't get more hipster than The Breakfast Club. A cluttered homage to 80s nostalgia, TBC has a large array of breakfasts to choose from, so if you're really hungry you can get the Full Monty (a full english breakfast with all the trimmings), and if you're only a little hungry you can just order a Half Monty. If you fancy something a little more spicy, there's plenty of brekkies with a hot mexican twist - try the breakfast burrito.
Where is it? There are plenty of them in London so no doubt there will be one reasonably close to you: Soho, Spitalfields, London Bridge, Hoxton, Canary Warf, Battersy and Angel.
How much is it? It's pretty reasonable. A Full Monty costs £10.50, but it's one of the biggest things on the menu.
