  • English Breakfast

There’s nothing quite like a hearty English breakfast, usually consisting of bacon, fried eggs, sausage, mushrooms, baked beans, toast, grilled tomatoes, and usually accompanied with tea or coffee.

But who's to say this meal is for the morning? Many cafes, pubs and restaurants offer this serve at any time of day as an "all-day breakfast". We've done our homework and compiled an up-to-date list of your favourites spots around town. Image Credit: Food For Thought - Facebook Page​​​​​​​

Freshly roasted coffee is a rarity in cafes and Sarnies is one of the rare ones. Awaken your senses with a brilliant cup of coffee followed by Breakfast of Champions - steak or salmon, scrambled eggs, mixed greens, guacamole and tomatoes. There are plenty of other equally delicious options for brekkie including Bacon & Egg Sarnie, Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagel, Ham & Cheese Croissant and for those in a rush, Breakfast Wrap made with eggs, roast tomatoes and shrooms.

It started way before, with the decision to take a leap of faith.  For Franck, the founder - a consummate F&B expert, it was a challenge to be on his own. But a challenge he doesn't face alone. He inspires everyone in his team to serve awesomeness, as he does, all the time. My Awesome Café is a business, as much as it is a playground, a school, a home. In their own little way, they hope to share with you the familial spirit that puts a smile on your faces that keeps us going everyday.

Our grandmothers were right when they said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And you’ve probably noticed that over the years, breakfast has grown beyond the simple human need to ‘break the fast’ after a night’s sleep to something that is almost ubiquitous. You could say that breakfast is the very essence of the modern meal.

Wild Honey is created way back in 2009 because of the simple love of breakfast.

They love the limitless and delicious possibilities of breakfast – sweet, savoury, spicy, chewy, gooey, crunchy, simple and elegant – and are passionate that breakfast can and should be enjoyed all day.

Inspired by the travels over the years they bring you a beautiful collection of breakfast dishes that evoke the sensations of our childhood or take us to far-flung places as diverse as Paris, Mexico, Turkey, Yemen, Australia and beyond.
