The Lodge - Balham
The Lodge is Balham’s newest breakfast destination. In fact its Balham’s newest restaurant, it only opened on Friday! The 6 month residency on recently pedestrianised Hildreth Street is the brainchild of London’s King of the ‘pop-up’ – Jimmy Garcia. The c...

I really struggled to find a Swiss breakfast in London (plenty of breakfasts in Swiss cottage) that was until I discovered the Delaunay. You get a sense of 'old world chic' as you step through the door, as though it was the 1920's and you are staying in The...

Merrybox Kitchen - Waterloo
You guessed it, I have struggled to find anywhere in London offering the full Ivory Coast breakfast experience. Surprising right?! What I have learnt however, having done some research is that the people of the Ivory Coast aren't that fussy when it comes to...

Garufa – Finsbury Park
Argentina is generally considered home to the best steak the world has to offer, so I was hoping that their love of red meat extended to breakfast time. So I headed to North London to the long and winding Blackstock road which connects Finsbury Park and Hig...
