• The Tradition Of All-Day Breakfast In UK Cafes

    Breakfast as the first meal of the day should be substantial and nothing does it better than a full English breakfast, also known as a fry-up. It is a time devoted to a leisurely sit-down affair with steaming coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, and buttery toast as a side to fried eggs, beans, and sausage.

     

    The idea of a full breakfast was first introduced by the gentry in 14th century England. Those who were better off could afford to add cold meats, cheese, and dripping to their bread and ale. Today a traditional English breakfast usually consists of fried eggs, fried beef or lamb sausages, grilled bacon, a slice of fried tomato, buttered toast, a serving of baked beans, fried mushrooms, often accompanied by black pudding a type of blood-wurst, and rounded off with a cup of tea or coffee.

     

    Brunch Breakfast Lunch is a term that became popular for a meal that was eaten later than the normal time for breakfast but earlier than lunchtime. Soon it became evident that some people enjoyed the hearty food served as a fry-up at any time of the day and not only for breakfast which is where the all-day breakfast concept was born. Having breakfast at any time of the day is associated with holidays and being sociable, however, it also fulfills the need for a good hearty meal without being restricted to breakfast time.

     

    The holiday season in the UK increases appetites for long breakfasts in sunny locations or cozy cafes. Restaurant owners quickly realized the importance of offering an all-day breakfast menu for lovers of breakfast fare. It provides an opportunity to showcase new ways of cooking phenomenal egg dishes, present new cuts of meat, and brewing exceptional coffee.

     

    No longer is breakfast a quick start to the day but a prolonged time when food, traditionally associated with breakfast, can be enjoyed with friends or family at any time of the day. Nowadays cafes and bars serve ale with breakfast type dishes that make for a unique type of bar cuisine and people can check out their menu.

     

    Breakfast cafe fare in the United Kingdom is alive and well as evidenced by the many sidewalk cafes where hundreds of patrons can be found ordering a full English breakfast at lunchtime, tea time, or dinner time. Spectacular breakfasts and brunches are served all over the UK from the reliably traditional fry-up to joyfully lawless dishes that completely break with tradition.
