London’s Best Breakfasts & Brunch | West London

London's Best Breakfasts & Brunch | West London

 

One of the questions I get asked the most from friends or on social media is where to eat the best breakfast in the city. My answer to that is always …

1. This is a big city and there are so many good places to eat breakfast!

2. What’s your budget? Location? Occasion? Mood?

The breakfast and brunch scene in London has tripled in size to when I first moved to London in 2011 and it continues to grow with a new place popping up nearly every week. Well, it feels like that, anyway! Breakfast has become my absolute favourite meal to eat out and the choice, quality and creativity in London has made that experience so much easier and enjoyable.

I’ve put together a series of some of the best breakfast and brunch spots in each area that I’ve eaten at, loved and would recommend to you hungry lot out there. To make it easier, I’ve also narrowed it down to area depending on where you live or where you are staying in the city.

As well as West London, I have blogs on the best breakfast spots in NorthSouthEast and Central London, so be sure to check them out too!

Here are, in no particular order, London’s Best Breakfasts & Brunch | West London.

 

1. Outsider Tart, Chiswick

Outsider Tart is the home of true Southern American cooking. They do big, hearty breakfast dishes such as stacks of buttermilk pancakes, meatloaf sandwiches and momma’s French toast. Don’t be fooled into thinking its one of those tacky American diners. Outsider is home-cooked comfort food at its best. If you’re on a diet, stay well away. If you’re not, get your butt over to Chiswick for one helluva morning. Stretchy trousers are advisable.

Why go?  For comfort, home cooking.

2. Egg Break, Notting Hill

You’d never just stroll past Egg Break if you weren’t looking for it which makes it one of London’s loveliest hidden gems. It sits on a corner just behind Notting Hill station nestled between West London’s iconic multicoloured houses. As their name suggests they have an egg heavy menu made in every way possible – from omelettes to Turkish eggs. From egg and bacon butties to hearty shakshuka. If you want something sweet, you have to try the Nutella French toast. Go early. By 11 am there is usually a large queue.

Angie’s is a gorgeous Australian brunch spot in Chiswick. West London. It’s actually opposite Outsider Tart that I mentioned at the top of this blog. They’re a chic little cafe on Chiswick’s main road which is light, airy and filled with young families and friends catching up over a coffee. It looks like something you’d find along a beautiful Aussie beach. They have a substantial brunch menu of all your favourites which have been jazzed up a little bit. The buttermilk hotcakes or the wild mushrooms on brioche are two fantastic dishes.

5. Snaps and Rye, Notting Hill

Created in 2014 by husband and wife team Kell and Jacqueline, Snaps & Rye is a Danish cafe and restaurant near the famous Portobello Road. They specialise in Nordic cuisine and Danish delicacies, all the while keeping a very slight nod to the British breakfast staples we already know and love.  There’s the ‘full Danish’ with pickled mushrooms, hogs pudding and liquorice syrup. Alternatively, for something lighter you can have a bowl of high protein Nordic ‘Skyr’ yoghurt with fruit. A great alternative place for breakfast. 

Why go? For something really different.

1o. Happy Sky Bakery, Shepherds Bush

There aren’t many places in London like Happy Sky Bakery. They’re a Japanese bakery who produce bread and pastries using traditional Japanese skills & techniques.
