London Love: Bill's

St Martin's Courtyard off Longacre, WC2E 9AB

Bill's is good for breakfast. I have also been assured by friends that it is good for lunch and dinner too, but I started with breakfast, and it was goo-ood. Eggs Florentine, full English, porridge, French toast, juice, smoothies, Bloody Marys, take your pick, everything we ordered (and there were six of us) looked and tasted delicious. Okay, so we didn't order the porridge, it was a Sunday morning and a birthday breakfast for chrissake, but everything else was delicious and I am sure the porridge would have been too, had we been feeling a little more restrained.

Bill's also sell grocery items, and it is worth a visit for the beautifully stacked and wonderfully colourful shelves alone. Also, branches in Brighton (the original I think, never been, but told it's fab), Cambridge, Lewes and Reading, so if you are not a Londoner you can still get your fix.


  1. Oooh yummy, I'm salivating. We used to go the one in Brighton when we lived there- the best breakfast ever!

  2. Mmmmm, going out for breakfast is my FAVOURITE.

    I had to laugh at "we didn't order the porridge, it was a birthday breakfast for chrissake"...

    Next time we're in London, I am so absolutely going to Bill's. Thanks for the recommendation. That, and your photos, has me drooling!

  3. OMG.. want that breakfast right now.. in fact want the whole menu! Looks like a well cute find - will have to check it out at some point!

  4. Love the look of this spot and yes - that food does look goo-ood! I also read a bit about the history of the stores - very inspirational! :-)
