Where to find everything from a “full English” to duck-leg topped waffles

Londoners love nothing more than a hearty breakfast. The Brits claim to have invented the word “brunch” for the mid-morning ritual which evolved from the grand “hunt” breakfasts of old; what’s undisputed is their dedication to the meal. In the city, weekday meetings no longer involve wine-laden lunches but instead occur much earlier over a feast of poached eggs, avocado on rye, and cold-pressed juice. On weekends, as suggested by the street-side queues, brunch successfully competes with the nation’s one-time favorite meal — the Sunday roast.
