My Best Breakfast in London

The best of anything is always going to be a tricky one.

* best film?
* favourite album?

On a Saturday morning and often like a scene from High Fidelity repeated ad nauseum groups discuss "where is best for breakfast".

Where is best for breakfast?

Bethnal green has Pellicci's which has got to be in anyones top london cafes but  my best breakfast in London involves the last thing most people want when they crawl out from the night before in search of someone else to cook breakfast for them: a journey.

Peddling out, leaving Bethnal and heading up Kingsland road often past the previous evening still spilling out onto the road picking up various people on the way.

We head up to Church St. passing Clissold park and morning risers, families of joggers.

Then its a switchback of sorts into Finsbury Park leaving the weird Sylvanian Family shop in our wake as we head first to Stroud Green road then a left onto Tollington Park road - I give you the journey as there is something important about it - flushes cobwebs.

Then we arrive at the tree to lean up the bikes and the familiar tables outside - packed in the summer, quieter in the cooler months.  And then we are there at Front Room or Front Rooms. We've all only ever ordered the breakfast, sometimes extra toast. Then we are on our way. Setup for the day ahead.
