From hideaway holes to Indian cafés, King’s Cross has everything you could want for breakfast and brunch, and so much more. Culture Trip’s guide to the very best spots will have you heading straight to North London.
Formerly the home of London’s more libertine residents, King’s Cross has transformed into one of the capital’s slickest and glossiest districts, welcoming innumerable restaurants and businesses into its corner. Whether you’re waiting for the Eurostar from St Pancras International, exploring leafy Bloomsbury, or heading over to the Wellcome Collection gallery in Euston, there’s no shortage of perfect brunch spots for you to stop off at.
This buzzy sandwich spot is the latest venture from James Ramsden & Sam Herlihy, the duo behind the award-winning Pidgin in Hackney, and despite being open for a relatively short amount of time, their creations are already developing cult status amongst London foodies. Their breakfast muffin, stuffed with creamed eggs and smoked tomato (with bacon or sausage, should you be inclined) prompts a clamour at the counter every morning, whereas their all-day offerings, like merguez sausage and pickled onion, or mortadella on focaccia with taleggio cheese, keep their punters coming all day long. Head down and find what the fuss is about.
