Prepare yourself for the day ahead with the best breakfasts and brunches around the world
Published on 11 Jul 2019
No matter which time zone you wake up in, a delicious breakfast is guaranteed to put a spring in your step and set you up for the day ahead. Here, we chat with several bloggers about where to get the best breakfast around the world:
“The best brunch spot in Denmark is Café Korn,” says Karalee from Tales of Belle. “At the weekend, Café Korn offers a brunch buffet filled with delicious food made with quality ingredients from local producers including plenty of vegetarian options. The selection of food includes scrambled eggs, yoghurt with syrup and muesli, pancakes and pastries, bread and buns served with a selection of cheese, meats, jam and avocado slices, as well as fruit. The food is served in small-sized portions to help reduce food waste.
“I enjoyed all of the food I tried and I could tell it was made with a focus on quality. The atmosphere at Café Korn is unique, it’s decorated like a farm shop since the owners previously operated an agriculture and production company with potatoes. Even though the café can be busy, especially during the weekends, I found the atmosphere to also be cosy with natural lighting and the staff friendly.”
A two-course brunch at Karma Sanctum is an ideal way to set yourself up for a day of sightseeing around London. “We tried lots of things we hadn’t had before and enjoyed them all,” Haydy from Squibb Vicious explains. “The receptionist offered the warmest welcome and there was plenty of music imagery around the walls. The staff were very attentive, our glasses never went empty and you really don’t feel like you’re on the doorstep of one of the busiest parts of London.
“We started with the smoked salmon and avocado pot, then we had ham, egg, chips and peas with a slight twist. For our second course, we had chia pancakes stacked with spinach, chorizo and a good drizzling of red pepper sauce. We also had the eggs royal which, for those who don’t know, is made up of an English muffin, smoked salmon and a smothering of bearnaise sauce.” Delicious!
“The brunch at Dishoom was one of the most fabulous I’ve ever had,” Melanie from Two Plus Dogs told us. “We planned the visit after drooling over the picture of a bacon naan on social media. I chose the egg and sausage naan roll which consists of warm, freshly-baked naan bread with just a touch of cream cheese, chilli tomato jam and herbs wrapped around peppery Ayrshire sausages and a rich fried egg which had a runny yolk - it was delicious.
“The combination of the bread’s tandoori flavour with the delicious filling made this a taste sensation. Hugely satisfying and comforting to eat and a feast for the eyes. It is not every day that you eat whole naan bread for breakfast, is it? I was in heaven! We sat back, full and content, to enjoy the sight of the restaurant which is spacious and set over two floors of a large historic building. The decor pays homage to Irani cafés and is full of quirky and cool touches.”
“This iconic New York breakfast joint is famous for its fish, which is traditionally added to a bagel with cream cheese. This is known as a bagel with lox and a schmear. Russ & Daughters is a family business that is more than 100 years old and still stands today,” explains Karen from Wanderlusting K. “Like in the old days, you have to wait in line at the counter prior to paying for your bagel. The interior is straight out of a movie, with several movies actually being filmed inside this New York institution. Staff are friendly although brisk, so be sure to know your order before your enter.
“Luckily, they also own a café just two blocks away where you can sit down to order your favourites without the rush. A true New York bagel with lox and a schmear is often messy due to the heavy amount of cream cheese but it is very savoury due to the fish with a bit of sweetness due to the cream cheese. It’s a hearty breakfast, enough to last you for most of the morning without a snack.”
