Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It doesn’t need to cost you a fortune though…

Beigel Bake

The best and cheapest place to get a bagel in London, this Brick Lane bakery is open 24 hours a day, but the breakfast bagels are amazing. They’re also under £5 – even better! 

The Breakfast Club

You can’t really mention a breakfast restaurant and not suggest one with breakfast in the name! They have a mouth-watering menu from a buttie for £4.50 to the BC Breakfast Burrito for £9.50. Whatever your hot breakfast desires, they can satisfy you! 

26 Grains

If you are looking for a vegan breakfast location, then 26 grains might be your new favourite place. Located in Neal’s Yard in the seven dials area, with porridge and cold bowl options, which are beautifully presented and all under £7, it’s a must. 


The Bacon Naan from Dishoom has been raved about throughout London for a while now and we can totally see why – light puffy naan bread, with salty bacon and a perfectly cooked egg . . . this combination of flavours and cultures is a match made in heaven – and it’s only £5.20!


If you love your French cuisine and especially pastries, then this is the place for you. Their breakfast pastries are all under £3, their porridges and light breakfasts are around £5-8, but if you want to really push the boat out, we recommend the buttermilk pancakes and French toast, still under £10!

Beyond Bread 

When you are gluten intolerant, breakfast in some restaurants can be reduced to fruit and cardboardy bread. Not at Beyond Bread. This gluten free bakery offers as many options as any other bakery – take a Danish, muffin or croissant for under £5, or a toastie or sandwich for around £6.

Coppa Club Tower Bridge

This is the perfect place to go with visitors whilst still being in budget. Their weather-proof dining pods on the terrace mean that no matter the season you can enjoy the iconic views of London al fresco. Their menu is amazing too – from light bites to a full skillet breakfast for £9.95.

Farm Girl Café

Another beautiful bijoux café, Farm Girl is the place to go for filling, wholesome food. It’s the place to go for porridge, acai bowls, smashed avocado on toast. Oh, and they market their Notting Hill café as “notoriously dog friendly” – lovely!

The Electric Café 

You’d be forgiven for thinking The Electric Café was one of the new hipster café’s desperately trying to look like it’s been there for the last 50years. But it’s not. This café has actually been open for over a century. Definitely the place to go for a proper week-day fry up. 

The Wolseley

Somewhere to go when you want to push the boat out, their pastries, fresh fruit, smoothies and toast are all under £10, but if you can stretch to £12/£13 you can try their specialities which include grilled kipper with mustard butter or salt beef hash with duck egg.
