For breakfast week (25th-31st Jan) we have put together a list of the finest breakfast destinations in town… with a twist. We have highlighted the top BRINNER hotspots for those who fancy a bit of breakfast for dinner!
THE LIDO CAFE – www.thelidocafe.co.uk
This poolside paradise will be celebrating breakfast week by serving up their legendary brekky every evening. The award winning café is already renowned locally for their exceptional culinary fare and range of dishes – from their more delicate and dainty options to their hearty and hangover throttling English Breakfasts. Their organic porridge with fruit compote has recently been voted one of London’s top 100 dishes by Time Out magazine, and this year they are pulling out all the stops with the genius Eggs 3 Ways. This is bound to satisfy your cravings all in one go by combining eggs benedict, florentine, and royale all on one plate! Now you can get your eggy fix in one swoop…
BREW – www.brew-cafe.com (top image)
Loved for their deliciously innovative Antipodean menu, any time is brunch time at Brew…. and that includes the evening. With locations in Putney, Battersea, Clapham and Wimbledon, BREW’s menu is inspired by owner Jason Wells travels, with particular influence coming from the diverse likes of Israel and New York. Not one to be constrained by convention, Jason favours eclectic combinations of unusual ingredients, so breakfast, brunch and BRINNER guests can expect creations such as Turkish eggs (poached and served with hung yoghurt, hot chilli butter and toasted pide) and pan-fried field mushrooms with aged balsamic and pesto sitting alongside the more familiar brunchy delights of soft-boiled Burford Brown eggs and soldiers (with a choice of Marmite or Vegemite, of course!), home-made granola with roasted plums, and even coco pops! At 8pm? Why not? Brew regulars rave about the Brindisa chorizo scrambled eggs on sourdough toast – spicily satisfying any time of day. The only criteria is the finest fresh produce, locally sourced and in-season wherever possible, and fabulous flavour combinations. The result? Food you want to eat, morning, noon and night!
POLO 24 HOUR BAR – www.polo24hourbar.co.uk
Rise and shine to the London skyline with Britain’s best dish, served by Britain’s best cafe. Polo 24 Hour Bar will be upping their ante this Breakfast Week with their mighty Breakfast Pie. Never one to turn their back on the traditional full English, Polo will be incorporating all your brekky favourites into their classic pie of the day. Think Cumberland sausage, dry cured bacon, cheddar gorge cheese medley all topped with a free range fried egg and crumbled black pudding and encased within a crisp pastry case. This pie is taking no prisoners with its full bodied flavours and hearty portions. So toss out your toast and marmalade and cast aside your cuppa as you embark on a Breakfast Week adventure.
VINGT-QUATRE - www.vq24hours.com
London’s popular 24 hour café & diner prides itself on serving their legendary breakfast menu, featuring everything from bubble ‘n’ squeak to eggs benedict, around the clock. A full Late Night Refreshment Licence means they never have to close, and you can enjoy your breakfast with champagne, wine, or a cocktail.. so celebrate ‘brinner’ at VQ this breakfast week.
