As my last breakfast/brunch post was so successful, I decided to do a revamped version. I pretty much go to breakfast as a career, and there are so many new places cropping up, I thought I'd share my favourites that are worth a visit.
NAC stands for North Audley Canteen, and is based on North Audley Street in Mayfair. My last office was literally around the corner and am so gutted it didn't exist back then! Amazing interiors, gorgeous crockery, great outside seating space for sunny mornings and the shakshuka comes with pitta served in cute striped paper bags. I've only been once but the PR and I both decided it was our new favourite.
One for the South Londoners amongst us (or if you just fancy a good breakfast!). I visited the Tooting branch (they also have in Balham and Clapham) which is inside Tooting market, which is great for weekends. The soya cappuccino was delicious and the breakfast burrito is the perfect hangover cure.

A new place in West London (just up the road from Granger & Co where I saw David Beckham - life made), whose food is sugar, dairy free and supports vegetarian and vegan diets. So, healthy pancakes? I'm in...and they did not disappoint.

This place has been around a while but I've only just discovered it recently. You can't book but the coffee is great and the menu superb - it changes seasonally, too.
6 and 8.
This place has had so much instagram love lately, I was adamant we had to go and see for ourselves. And yes, the interiors are gorgeous, especially the conservatory with floral furniture and green plants everywhere. I have to say, I wasn't all that impressed with the food in general - it was just okay - but it was a lovely start to our day.

Anywhere with pink tables gets a yes from me...Again, I'd seen this place on a few of my fave Instagirlfriends' feeds and tried when I was next in Notting Hill - it's quite a hippy joint but with a bustling atmosphere and delicious home-made cakes (but they serve hot food, too!). Definitely one to do with friends before a wander down Portobello on a weekend.
