The best bacon sarnies in London

Good morning 

I hope you are all well. 

How has the start of the week been for you?  Did you have a great weekend and struggled to get up for work on Monday morning. 

As you are all busy this week I am sure that there will be some vino enjoyed over some evenings.  Now, if you are not feeling so bright and breezy the next morning why not pick up the perfect brekkie in the form of a bacon sarnie. 

Whilst surfing the net I have found the best cafes in London for the bacon sarnies. 

If you try them out let us know what you think.  Would be great to hear what you think. 


Miss Jones 

St John Bread and Wine

Smoky, salty and seriously satisfying. The rashers (Gloucester Old Spot) are as good as you’d expect from St John, the bread is toasted on an open-flame grill and the homemade ketchup knocks the socks off Heinz.
£5.90, from 9am-11am daily, 94-96 Commercial Street, E1 (020 7392 0236); stjohngroup.uk.com/spitalfields


Shoreditch’s Bombay café has teamed up with meat maestros The Ginger Pig to create a limited-edition bacon naan roll. It is made with smoked streaky bacon, giving a sweetness and depth of flavour and served with tangy tomato-chilli jam, cream cheese and coriander.
£5.90, available until Nov 2, 7 Boundary Street, E2 (020 7420 9324); dishoom.com

The Lido Café

Brockwell Lido’s restaurant sells a bacon bap that even the gluten-intolerant can enjoy. The rashers (Gloucester Old Spot again) are juicy, and you get a lot of bacon for your buck.
£4.85, served until 11.30am on weekdays, 12.30pm at weekends, Dulwich Road, SE24 (020 7737 8183); thelidocafe.co.uk

Lantana Café

Sourdough toast + HG Walter’s organic streaky bacon + Lantana tomato relish = heaven. Add a fried egg for £1.50.
£6.50, served until 11.30am weekdays and until 3pm at weekends, 13 Charlotte Place, W1 (020 7637 3347); lantanacafe.co.uk

The Regency

This greasy spoon in Pimlico serves up the ultimate comfort food. Its bacon sandwich might knock a few days off your life expectation but boy will it be worth it.
£2.30, served all day, 17-19 Regency Street, SW1 (020 7821 6596)
