Where to Breakfast in Southwark

Albie Restaurant Bar, The Hoxton

Hotel restaurant


Open from - 7 am

Serving hungry Londoners from 7 am on weekdays, Albie Restaurant Bar at The Hoxton Hotel is a predictably stylish place to breakfast in Southwark. With cosy furnishings and a welcoming décor indoors, Albie delights customers with a comforting menu of breakfast classics, including smoked salmon on rye, porridge oats with apples and cinnamon and a vegan chickpea omelette for a meat and dairy free option.

Albie’s central location makes it an ideal destination for clients who are visiting you in the city, and the luxury hotel setting offers a leisurely yet professional way to start a day of important meetings and negotiations. With breakfast served until 11:30 am, you and your guests can greet the day at a slower pace.


Bakery & café


Open from - 8 am

A local favourite for informal breakfast meetings or a pre-workday coffee boost, Caravan boasts an extensive menu which is perfect for big groups with differing tastes and diets. Housed in an old metal box factory in Southwark, Caravan has maintained the same industrial chic décor through exposed brickwork and original 19th-century features; beyond that, it’s a modern, spacious venue ideal for professional gatherings.

Breakfast is served from open until 11:15 am, and the menu is globally-inspired and imaginative, from fresh fruit bowls, to fried jalapeño cornbread and a veggie fry-up, as well as a drinks menu encompassing kombucha, fresh juices and juice shots. With a custom-built espresso machine and new coffee brewing technology, expect a good cup of coffee as well to fuel the workday ahead.

The Table Café

Bakery & café


Open from - 8 am

Another favourite with local professionals, The Table Café has earned its impeccable reputation over the course of 15 years to become a stalwart of the Southwark breakfast scene. With a focus on sustainable sourcing and a strong community ethos, this is a stylish but informal spot to introduce clients to London’s breakfast scene, or treat your employees to a celebratory breakfast after a big success.

Specialising in brunch plates in particular, The Table Café is open to serve food from 8 am Monday to Friday, offering tempting dishes including eggs in a variety of styles (eggs royale, Florentine and Benedict) and served on an English muffin, classic and vegan full English breakfasts and indulgent pancakes, waffles and French toast.

Where The Pancakes Are

Pancake restaurant


Open from - 8 am

A Southwark breakfast wouldn’t be complete without a mention of Where The Pancakes Are which, as can be expected, serves exceptional pancakes for a sweeter start to the working day. Residing in Flat Iron Square and a short walk from London Bridge station, this charming pancake house is centrally located making it an excellent destination to meet with colleagues or clients, all for an affordable price.

Served up are a variety of sweet and savoury buttermilk pancakes, and with a vegan and wheat-free batter option also available, there’s something for all tastes on the menu. Highlights include the Hummingbird pancakes with cinnamon poached pineapple, banana marshmallow pancakes and the pulled beef pastrami savoury pancakes.


Australian-style restaurant


Open from - 8 am

Just south of the river and close to foodie haven Borough Market, Lantana is a slice of Australian sunshine in Southwark and an ideal option for a workday breakfast meeting, or a laptop-friendly space for freelancers and solo entrepreneurs. This is a spacious setting with two floors of tables available, with the same laid-back atmosphere typical of its Aussie café culture heritage.

For a quick fix before the working day begins, the house blend makes an excellent cup of coffee. Or, for a longer solution to a breakfast meeting, Lantana offers up a menu which showcases Australian favourites such as corn fritters with halloumi or bacon, as well as plant-based options such as oat milk porridge with poached pears. Fresh juices and smoothies also add a healthy sugar boost to an early morning meeting.
