Whether you prefer stacks of pancakes smothered in butter and maple syrup or a healthy bowl of granola, there’s plenty of choice on offer with many cafes and restaurants battling to deliver the most out there and enticing options – take a look at our top picks from around the world.

New York City

Where? Sunday in Brooklyn, Williamsburg

What should I order? Be prepared to wait for a table for the ultimate breakfast in NYC. When you do get seated you must try their famous malted pancakes that come with a hazelnut maple praline sauce and brown butter. Finish this off with the number one breakfast cocktail with a twist – Sunday Bloody Sunday. This treat for the taste buds is made with mezcal and Sambal in Brooklyn’s house mix.

“Even though we had to wait for a table we were able to give them our phone number and they got in touch with us when our table was ready, meaning we could explore for a bit. The portions were so large, but I must say so delicious. It took me forever to choose from the menu, I felt like everything was an absolute must! In the end I opted for the pancakes and I was certainly not disappointed.”
