Mandarin Oriental | 66 Knightsbridge
Popular with residents of the nearby squares and hotel guests alike, the Mandarin Oriental serves a traditional Full English Breakfast with options such as Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine and Parmesan polenta, alongside their more exotic Japanese and Chinese breakfasts which include dishes such as steamed Dim Sum, tofu with ginger, and dried seaweed.
The Wellesley | No 11 Knightsbridge
As one of the newest luxury hotels in Knightsbridge, The Wellesley already have a reputation for being among the best, and their breakfasts are no exception. As well as their Full English Breakfast, they also offer mouth-watering alternatives from the other side of the Atlantic, such as toasted waffles with maple syrup and American pancakes with seasonal berries. But if you want the best on the menu then opt for The Champagne Breakfast, which is accompanied by a glass of Veuve Cliquot.
The Berkeley | Wilton Place, Knightsbridge
Breakfast is served in the well-known Caramel Room under the watchful eye of executive chef Shaun Whatling. The range of breakfast teas are — as you would expect from The Berkeley — well selected. There is a breakfast buffet and a Full English Breakfast available, alongside a Japanese Breakfast and an à la carte breakfast. The latter includes a breakfast that is completely tailored to your liking.
The Lanesborough | Hyde Park Corner
Set on the corner of Hyde Park, The Lanesbough has one of the most diverse selection of teas, offering everything from Lapsang Souchong smoked tea from the Fujian province of China to a top quality Assam tea from the Sibsagar region in India. They also serve English and à la carte breakfasts but it is their Fitness Breakfast that really sets them apart from the rest — perfect after a morning run in Hyde Park.
Harrods Terrace | 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge
The Terrace is part of one of the most famous department stores in London. Set on the fourth floor, guests can enjoy a morning view of London in a relaxed mezzanine conservatory setting that borders the Georgian Restaurant. This is about as traditional as it gets — the breakfast and the setting make this an authentic English breakfast experience.
The Pantechnicon | 10 Motcomb Street, Knightsbridge
Popular with residents of Belgravia, The Pantechnicon is a stylish public house and dining room on Motcomb Street. Located on the corner of a quiet street lined with wonderful boutique stores, this is a good option for those wanting to be close to Knightsbridge but far from the main road. Take a seat outside and enjoy a good Full English Breakfast or choose from one of their famous omelettes.
The Orange | 37 Pimlico Road
If you like The Pantechnicon then you will feel right at home in The Orange. Breakfast ranges from cinnamon spiced plum & fig porridge to a Full English Breakfast, with plenty to choose from in-between. Like The Pantechnicon, there is also a selection of omellettes as well as other cooked options such as the Trealy Farm spiced bubble & squeak. If you have a long day ahead of you then they can also whip you up a breakfast cocktail.
Tomtom Coffee House | 114 Edbury Street
Expert in the art of coffee making, this is the place to go if your morning cup of coffee is the highlight of your breakfast. Set in a quiet location, outside seating is available where guests can enjoy a range of pastries, healthy breakfast snacks, cooked breakfasts, and the signature Tomtom breakfast butties. After breakfast, cigar aficionados can cross the road to Tomtom Cigars, one of London’s leading cigar merchants.
Tom’s Kitchen | 27 Cale Street, Chelsea
Although Tom’s Kitchen doesn’t have a Knightsbridge postcode, it is just too good — and too close — to leave off the list. A few hundred yards from the award-winning Tom Aikens Restaurant, this is a really good find. It was voted Best Breakfast in London by Time Out. As well as The Full English, dishes include Eggs Royale with smoked salmon, crisp Belgian waffles, and homemade granola with mixed berries and Greek yoghurt.
Daylesford | 44B Pimlico Road
Almost entirely self-sufficient and 100% organic, you can be sure that you are being served the freshest ingredients at Daylesford. Breakfast consists of a Full Daylesford and a selection of farmhouse favourites made using freshly laid eggs, as well as freshly made pastries and award-winning breads baked that very morning and made by hand on their farm. There is also a farm shop downstairs selling seasonal produce — so you can buy your lunch on the way out.
