10 Greasy Spoons In London That Will Fulfill Your Fry Up Fantasies

Bacon and Eggs walk into a bar. The bartender takes one look at them and says: ‘Sorry, we don’t serve breakfast.’*

*All jokes aside, these places do.

 

1. E. Pellicci – Bethnal Green

Portion Size: ????

Presentation:???

Cost: ££

You might not think an Italian restaurant would be the best place to find a good English fry up but you would be so, so wrong. E Pellicci’s produces one of the best breakfast plates in East London with some of the nicest staff handing it to you and if you grab a table outside you’ll truly feel immersed in the vibrant and lively atmosphere that Bethnal Green has to offer.

 

2. Inhabition Cafe, Camden.

Portion Size: ???

Presentation:????

Cost: £££

This beautifully decorated bolt hole is perfect for a cosy breakfast away from the manic surroundings of Camden. Located opposite Stables Market you’ll often find groups of slightly hungover students in there ordering piles of fried egg sandwiches and if I were you, i’d join right in.

 

3. Regency Café, Victoria.

Portion Size: ????

Presentation:???

Cost: £

One Trip Advisor reviewer called this place “The Mutt’s Nuts” and we’re inclined to agree. By far the best value for money on our list, this place is probably the most “English” of all the breakfasts you can try in London so definitely prepare to rub elbows with some *true* Londoners.

 

4. The Breakfast Club, across London.

Portion Size: ???

Presentation:???

Cost: £££

With a name like that, you have to perform and boy they do. With the crispiest of bacon and friendliest of staff don’t hold back on ordering (this is not one of those, “I’ll just have a bit” scenarios missy).

 

5. The Wonder Café, Hillingdon.

Portion Size: ???????????????(no really)

Presentation:???

Cost: £££ (or free)

If you’re like me and you love a good (albeit, somewhat unfeasible) challenge, then look no further than the Wonder Café’s Fry Up Challenge. 4 fried slices, 4 slices of toast, 4 eggs, 6 sausages, 6 rashers of bacon, 6 hash browns, 4 black pudding, plum tomatoes, beans and mushrooms, all to be eaten in 45 mins or you pay £20. Apparently there’s only been one victor thus far so make the next one YOU*.

*Secret London must add that any cardiac malfunctions/cholesterol induced attacks will not be covered by us, nor will we admit to any responsibilities regarding vomiting/crying.

 

6. Terry’s Café, Great Suffolk Street.

Portion Size: ????

Presentation:???

Cost: ££

Right next to Borough Market but without all the hustle and bustle that can be quite draining, this amazing little café is perfect for no-fuss food at its finest. And better yet, everything is sourced locally; the meats are from Terry’s old workplace Smithfield market and other fresh produce comes from Borough market itself.

 

7. Maggie’s Cafe & Restaurant, Lewisham Road.

Portion Size: ????

Presentation:??

Cost: ££

Maggie’s 26 item breakfast platter is not to be missed, especially if you yearn for the taste of good old fashioned fried bubble and squeak (a lost art, some might say) which is one of her tastiest items.

 

8. The Hawksmoor, Guildhall.

Portion Size: ????

Presentation:????

Cost: ££££

For those “You fancy, huh?” days where only the finest fried foods will do. Serving anything in a skillet pan and offering the option of grilled bone marrow (don’t knock it till you’ve tried it) screams splendour but the food here is also well sourced and good-tasting. The breakfast for two is more than enough grub, so split the bill with a fellow foodie and try not to overthink those numbers.

 

9. Bill’s Restaurant, Kensington High Street.

Portion Size: ????

Presentation:???

Cost: £££

Worth booking ahead if you have the time since it can often get crowded come the weekend, Bill’s is a firm favourite with the brunch crowd and it’s fry-ups are yum-my. The staff are very catering and are more than happy to adjust your breakfasts to how you’d prefer, so feel free to be as picky as your mother never let you be.

 

10. The Stockpot, Kings Road.

Portion Size: ???

Presentation:???

Cost: ££

Kings Road is known for it’s cheap, value-for-money, low-cost- OKAY, okay the Kings Road is expensive as hell i get it. But somehow, The Stockpot does actually manage to produce cheap, value-for-money, low-cost breakfasts which taste really good. Down to earth dining at it’s best, The Stockpot is the place to go when you’ve had enough of faint-inducing price tags in some of its neighbouring haunts.
