Based on our adoration of the breakfast sarnie we speculate that the average human probably eats at least one bacon butty a week, if not more. With that said we bring you a round-up of where you can find the best bacon butty’s in the city. For the good of your health we advise you try them all.

Jack’s Clapham

Jack’s Clapham pride themselves on being purveyors of posh nosh and honest grub. An independently run café just a hop, skip and a jump from Clapham Junction station, Jack’s will give you the closest bacon butty to the one you would make in your own pan. Whether you are a crispy bacon connoisseur or strictly a tomato sauce addict, Jack’s staff take care in serving your bacon butty exactly how you like it. You can eat in or have your bacon butty to go, either way you are in for a hearty treat.

Le Swine

After one year of research founder of Le Swine James and his comrade Bruno decided to take the ultimate bacon butty to the streets of London and beyond. Le Swine serves up porky goodness in a 1960’s Austin Morris camper van at Spitalfields, Broadgate Circle or Broadway Market. A reinvented camper van selling bacon butty’s, with their bacon sourced from a farm that goes back as far as the Victorian era, will be sure to tick all of your bacon buttons. Le Swine home make everything, from their very own recipe of toasted milk and onion baps, to bacon butter, swinez tomato sauce and mushroom ketchup. The topping on their happy pig sandwich is the must-try duck egg.

Toastits aims to feed hungry mouths, stand out from the crowd and subvert expectations of the normal homemade toasted sandwich. Toasting up a gourmet bacon butty is a heart warming role for founder Phillippa Fern. If you want your bacon butty experience to be one of personality and passion, then Toastits will provide all of the thrills. All ingredients used are locally sourced and served on delicious artisan Sourdough bread. Toasits cater for all veggie gobblers or meat eating customers. For excellent bacon butty results, Toastits recommend adding a fried duck egg.

Flour to the People! are a family run business who don’t overcomplicate the cooking process. Their bacon butty can be built using the Toast the People method; choose exactly what you want on your bacon butty, their house beans and wild mushrooms make for a marvellous combination. At your leisure take advantage of getting your Sourdough topped up by your server, and don’t forget to add lashings of their house made butter. You will leave feeling full to the brim but where there is no carb intake, there is no bacon butty satisfaction.

Challenging the café style of bacon butty, Cambridge Street Kitchen offers your dose of bacon in the form of their CSK Breakfast Burger: smoked bacon, sausage, fried egg, herb roasted tomato and field mushroom on brioche. Their modern and fresh setting lends itself for a weekend indulgence; an a la carte bacon butty experience if you will.
