What are the best restaurants for all-day breakfast in London?

I have already shared my Forever Favourite London Restaurants that are worth the hype for lunch or dinner. But there are so many more London restaurants to recommend! And as I love breakfast food and brunch, I wanted to dedicate a post to some great all-day breakfast restaurants.
Here you can enjoy a breakfast meal no matter the time of day, but also other dishes for lunch, dinner or dessert.
When you are in London for a few days only, it is not always as easy to plan out your whole day and where to eat every meal. Planning which restaurants to visit when might feel like a gamble, like playing at UK Online Casinos. If you are in the middle of Oxford Street on a big shopping spree and start to feel an urgent hunger, you might just go for the easiest/ closest option.
To avoid just picking up an expensive sandwich that is not worth the money, I have gathered some London favourites which are all good for “all-day food”.
Five best London restaurants for all-day breakfast
If you skipped breakfast in the morning, there is no saying you can’t have it a bit later in the day! Check out the all-day breakfast options at these restaurants – or choose a lunch, dinner or dessert dish.
1. The Kensington Crêperie
If you are not sure where to go to eat, I always recommend South Kensington. And if you are not sure where to eat there, I recommend The Kensington Crêperie. (There is also a great Le Pain and Franco Manca there, but you should definitely visit the Crêperie first).
I first stumbled into this magical café in early November my first year in London. Some friends and I took the tube to South Kensington because there is a variety of restaurants there. Following an event, we were all in the mood for some food and drinks. As we walked out of the station, a place caught our eye immediately, with the words “crepes, waffles and wine” (among others) on their sign.
With ice cream, crepes, waffles and drinks, it is the perfect place for a girls night out. But the big menu also has savoury crepes and other dishes, perfect for lunch and dinner. Here you can enjoy breakfast food like pancakes, waffles and sandwiches all day long. Pair your meal with a cup of coffee in the daytime or a glass of wine in the evening.
Kensington Crêperie Details
- The Kensington Crêperie in a Nutshell: Delicious waffles, crepes, and more (sweet and savoury) in a diner-style location.
- Location: 2-4 Exhibition Rd, South Kensington, London SW7 2HF
- My Go-to Order: Strawberry, chocolate and banana waffle (with or without ice cream) and a glass of their house rosé.

2. Le Pain Quotidien
Whenever in doubt, choose Le Pain! Definitely one of my favourite places for breakfast, but also a great choice for every other meal of the day. Their freshly baked goods, homemade spreads, delicious hot and cold drinks and a wide variety of meals makes it the ideal place for a nice sit-down and some food.
Le Pain is a café chain, meaning you can find locations all over London. This is ideal if you don’t want to go through too much hassle of finding an exact location but still want a good and budget-friendly meal. Check Google Maps for your nearest Le Pain – one of the best restaurants for all-day breakfast in London.
Le Pain Details
- Le Pain in a Nutshell: Homemade, French baked goods, and spreads.
- Location: 24 locations across London: Covent Garden, Victoria, South Kensington +++. (PS: Le Pain can not only be found in London!)
- My Go-to Order: Scrambled eggs or a salad, and a bread basket to share (which gives you a whole lot of homemade bread and spread)
- Le Pain Menu
3. The Breakfast Club
I’ve already mentioned the Breakfast Club at this blog once before, but it fits this list too. Serving up delicious breakfasts and lunch dishes all day, it is the perfect restaurant for all-day breakfast in London. Here I have enjoyed pancakes in the early morning hours and late at night – and it is always just as delicious.
Even though it is called “the breakfast club”, you can also go there for lunch, dinner, dessert or just drinks! You will normally meet a queue, especially during weekends and peak times. But with more locations popping up, you can find a quieter spot if you are lucky.
The Breakfast Club Details
- The Breakfast Club in a Nutshell: All-day breakfast, great dishes and delicious drinks in a cool atmosphere.
- Location: 12 cafes across London
- My Go-to Order: Pancakes with berries and cream (the best cream ever) with freshly squeezed orange juice or a cocktail.
- The Breakfast Club Menu
4. Cereal Killer Café
I lived in London when Cereal Killer Café first opened back in 2014 and remember taking the tube out to Brixton to try it out. The concept of eating cereal at a café sounded intriguing – especially for a breakfast lover like me.
Walking into Cereal Killer Café almost feels like stepping into a time machine. You’ll be met with a wall of different cereals and retro, colourful decor. The café isn’t like any other, but then again the menu is quite different from other restaurants too.
Here you can choose from a lot of crazy cereals you might not have seen before, as well as different toppings and milk to make the bowl complete. Choose freely or try one of their recommended bowls. You can also buy boxes of cereal to bring home or join their subscription service.
Cereal Killer Café Details
- Sketch in a Nutshell: Slightly overpriced, but delicious and unique food worth the experience – insane decor and meals.
- Location: Stables Market Mezz, 2 Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AH
- My Go-to Order: A unique cereal I have not tried before with some sweet toppings like Oreos
5. E Pellicci / Pellici’s
When I was living in London, Buzzfeed wrote that E Pellicci had the best full English breakfast in the city. So, of course, I had to check it out. I love breakfast food and had a lot of English breakfast during my three years in London, but nothing was better than E Pellicci. It’s a family-run, authentic business serving up some great, homemade food.
The award-winning breakfast is affordable and you can add on all the sides you might want. Breakfast and lunch is served all day, but they also have a grill menu, pasta, and more. As it is not a chain restaurant, it gives out a lot of hospitality, love and genuine quality which you will not find in a lot of other places.
E Pellicci Details
- E Pellicci in a Nutshell: Homemade, delicious food in a homely atmosphere.
- Location: 332 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 0AG
- My Go-to Order: The full English (served all day) or the waiter’s recommendation.
- E Pellicci Menu
Best restaurants for all-day food in London
The restaurants above are based on an old post I wrote back in 2017. They might not be the most updated (nor are they very unique) but I think they are still all good restaurants for all-day food in London.
Though not everyone will love a chain restaurant, the good thing about them is that you won’t have to travel across London to find a location. And with a mix of chains and one-offs, there is something for everyone here!
