Start your working day well: The best breakfasts in town.
One of the best things about living in the city is going out for breakfast. Whether you just want to grab a croissant and coffee, or treat yourself to something more sustaining, make the most of weekday city living and head to one of our favourite places.
Oxford: The Jericho Café http://www.thejerichocafe.co.uk
Excellent full fry up or good vegetarian options such as grilled tomatoes and roasted Portobello mushrooms, stacked on toasted ciabatta on a bed of wilted spinach with basil pesto balsamic dressing.
Bristol: Spicer and Cole https://www.spicerandcole.co.uk
Head to one of 3 locations for great food and terrific coffee. Pastries, granola, avocado on toast and lots else, as locally sourced and organic as possible.
Birmingham, Cheltenham, Exeter and lots of places in between: Boston Tea Party http://www.bostonteaparty.co.uk
The ‘epic soulful café chain’ where each café is a one-off. AND they’ve stopped using plastic straws and bottles and are banning single use cups. But you can bring, buy or borrow a reusable cup and drink your coffee without shame!
London (Covent Garden): Dishoomhttp://www.dishoom.com
This is breakfast with a difference – and a fantastic way to start the day. Bacon Naan Rolls or, if you’re really hungry, a Big Bombay! Or settle for a drop of Chai and a Bun Maska.
London (Balham): Foxcroft & Ginger https://www.foxcroftandginger.co.uk
The bakery might supply many of the high-end cafes and restaurants across London, but visit the new F&G café in Balham and you’re in for a breakfast treat. Scrummy sourdough, perfect eggs and more.
