South East & East Anglia
Mange Tout – Brighton
The words ‘greasy spoon’ are enough to send shivers down the spine of the guys at Mange Tout. They’re blazing a trail for café culture showing you can break away from tradition and serve up freshly made delicacies to satisfy all manner of tastes. We’re big fans of guys who break the mould and these kind folk have well and truly shattered it. Bon appetite!
📍 81 Trafalgar Street, BN1 4EB
Best cure 🍳 Les Oeufs de Mange Tout – Two organic poached eggs on toasted sourdough with freshly made hollandaise sauce.
STAKKS – Southampton
We’ve searched far and wide and nothing quite ‘stakks’ up to the breakfast at the pancake house, STAKKS, in Southampton. Pick from a pre-made STAKK or build your own for the ultimate morning pick-me-up. With seven bases to choose from plus over fifty toppings, including savoury delights like caramelised onions and chorizo sausage to sweet treats like Malteasers and Golden Syrup, there’s truly something for everyone.
📍 Marlands Shopping Centre, SO14 7SJ
Best cure 🍳 The Ultimate Weekender – Sausage patties, bacon, hash browns, maple syrup, fried egg and pancakes.
Vaults & Garden – Oxford
Going out for lunch or dinner is always a bit of a special occasion, whereas breakfast doesn’t quite have the same feel about it… well, until now, that is! The Vaults and Garden in Oxford is a rather grand setting for that all-conquering breakfast and they boast a healthy detox mantra which is ideal for combatting the toxins from the previous night out. Set in the shadow of a glorious church, their locally sourced meals will enliven even the weariest gentlemen. What more could you want?!
📍 University Church, 1 Radcliffe Sq, OX1 4AH
Best cure 🍳 Full Oxford – Organic sausages and bacon, mushrooms, eggs, beans & toast.
Applaud Coffee – Ipswich
Whilst people applaud their coffee, we’re gunna go ahead and give them a standing ovation for their breakfasts because they’re, quite frankly, exquisite. This quaint café set up by dynamic-sister-duo Beth and Hannah boasts award-winning coffee to give you that much-needed morning energy boost which accompanies their bites superbly.
📍 19 St Peter’s Street, IP1 1XF
