For some reason it’s never very easy finding out about great breakfast and brunch places. Many seem to be local secrets that don’t make headlines.
So we thought we’d crowdsource a few local suggestions, and we did indeed learn about some new places.
This is what we heard!
Carol’s Place Cafe seems to have a great reputation in East Sheen but it’s only open on a weekday. Described as the best Greasy[not]Spoon in the area.
The Albert’s Deli is always popular. Great quality food, always tasty. Belgian Waffle’s, Full English, toasted bagels and even Boiled Egg and Soldiers!
Zoran’s Deli was called out. Situated just by St Margaret’s train station, you said it has the “best Eggs Benedict this side of the river”.
Bills by Richmond Bridge sits just by Richmond Bridge and gets a range of feedback from “never fails – always fresh and hot. Super scrambled egg! Great service” to “really gone off the boil”. Either way it’s well-located to start a walk along the River.
Annie’s earned an honorouble mention… “friendly staff and tasty tasty brunch”. We actually prefer breakfast in their sister restaurant in (shhhh…) Chiswick, but this is still a good option in Mortlake / Barnes.
Arthur’s on The Green in Twickenham “do amazing breakfasts” and “really really good hot yummy food” – and we have also enjoyed their Full English. Perfect when the sun is shining and it’s warm enough to sit outside.
The Greyhound on Kew Green. We didn’t get much info from this tweet… apparently it is “by far the best.”. We had a quick look at their menu and they do all the classics from the Full English (including a Vegetarian version) through to Eggs Benedict.
The Love Food cafe on Hill Rise in Richmond “is great. Fresh orange juice and full breakfast menu.” And “just faultless food. And fab juice” (or so you said)
Jackson & Rye down on Richmond Riverside. We’ve had a good brunch here a couple of times. You originally described it as an “amazing american brunch!” but one of our Facebook fans followed up to say they were not impressed. So the jury is out.
Butter Beans replaced Taylor Street Baristas, famed for some of the best coffee in the area. Breakfasts are reportedly good too.
The Fallow Deer in Teddington is always jam packed whenever we walk by (or stop by). We like it.
And finally we have heard that “Carluccios has the best breakfast everywhere”. Seems like this is also up for debate from some of our readers.
We’d love to hear your thoughts!
