The City is bursting with places to grab a bite to eat, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, the options are endless. It’s always nice to receive a recommendation so we thought we should share some of our most-loved destinations.
You better believe us when we say, Hawksmoor breakfast means business. Steak and eggs, pork chops, or lobster benedict? Just a few of our favourites on the menu and a tough decision every time. If you’re looking for a light breakfast, this is not the place for you. Booking is essential as Hawksmoor gets pretty busy and there’s nothing worse than planning what you’re going to order, then being turned away at the door. (Hawksmoor Guildhall, 10 Basinghall Street, London, EC2V 5BQ)
Meaty breakfasts not your thing? Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen serves up an exceptional vegetarian fry up. Even non-veggies will struggle to turn down eggs and halloumi. Alternatively, if you prefer to start your day on a sugar high, you can’t beat the ricotta pancakes with bananas and honeycomb butter. (Bread Street Kitchen, One New Change, 10 Bread St, London EC4M 9AJ)
If you’re celebrating a birthday or special occasion, why not watch the sunrise over London from 40 storeys high at Duck & Waffle. Easily the most impressive breakfast spot in The City. We recommend the house special: crispy duck leg confit, topped with a fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it. (Duck & Waffle, Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2)
The City is full of street food options, perfect for when you’re feeling adventurous or bored of last night’s leftovers. Every Thursday between 12-2pm, Kerb assembles at the bottom of The Gherkin, bringing some of London’s best street food traders to the Square Mile. The mix of traders changes by the week so there’s always something new to try. (Kerb Gherkin, 30 St Mary Axe, EC3A)
Just around the corner, Spitalfields has a whole street lined with food trucks, and is home to The Duck Truck, the UK’s first ever duck-only restaurant. You’ll be spoilt for choice with their selection of traders serving meat, fish, pasta and veggie options. We’re a regular in the queue for authentic Turkish cuisine at Ebby’s Kitchen. (Spitalfields, Lamb St, London E1 6EA)
For a really good steak, you can’t go wrong with Goodman. High quality meat, truffle chips and a curated wine list, served in a decadent, New York-style setting, is exactly the reason Goodman is our go-to for business meetings and client entertaining. (Goodman, 11 Old Jewry, London EC2R 8DU)
Our initial draw to Blixen, Spitalfields was the super stylish interior we’d seen splashed all over social media, however we’re pleased to say that the food matched up to the hype. The small plates and starters are ideal for sharing, making this a perfect spot for date night. Choose from brilliantly cooked meats, fish, pasta and vegetarian main course options, however the pièce de résistance has got to be the sticky toffee, pear crumble with vanilla ice cream. No matter how full you are, the desserts are a must. (Blixen, 65a Brushfield Street, Spitalfields, London E1 6AA)
A quick coffee
Our favourite coffee hotspot has to be Curators Coffee Studio, located just off Fenchurch Street. The small but trendy “studio” offers a variety of speciality teas and coffees, as well as freshly prepared sandwiches and cakes. Great for quick catch-ups, caffeine on the go and a delicious slice of cake. (Curators Coffee Studio, 9a Cullum Street, London EC3M 7JJ)
