INSIDE: Eat Cheap breakfast London style at Pret a Manger. Details of the Pret Breakfast menu & more here.
When we travel, I always try to lock in a hotel that includes breakfast, especially in London.
Breakfast in the London apartment, hotel or London AirBnB gives me the time to indulge in a few leisurely (but necessary) cups of tea before we embark on our London adventure.
God knows THAT is important for the day to begin right.
BREAKFAST INCLUDED are my favourite two words ever, a bonus inclusion vital for budget travel.
Buying three meals a day, plus snacks, for the whole family is the biggest budget killer for travelling families.
When we can’t swing it, and I’ve not been organised enough to have visited a local supermarket in London for bread, sandwich fillers, pastries, or the like, we eat breakfast on the go.
On these occasions, we need a quick AND cheap breakfast in London.
Also, there must be no dilly dallying about when the kids are in tow.
Adventures are waiting.
So the answer to the question “Where can I get a nice breakfast in Central London at 7am?”

Prep café is the best healthy breakfast London has for when you are travelling, (and we all know how hard it is to find healthy food on the road), plus the Pret menu includes a range of Pret gluten free food.

Pret Ready to Go meals
The ready-to-go meals are only ever cooked in small batches, regularly throughout the day, so you know the food-to-go (on the run) is also as fresh as can be.
Our favourite is their Pret ham and cheese toasties.
Roam the Gnome, the kids and I love this place, and dining in was never a hassle with two boisterous boys in tow (unlike other places we’ve been to.)
Pret is committed to sustainability.
Single use plastic has almost gone.
Compostable cutlery is on the way.
They are working towards ensuring all their packaging is 100% reusable or compostable.
They’ve been giving their food waste to local charities supporting the homeless crisis since they opened their first store.
