Take a look at our recommended list of places to get an American breakfast in London and fill those bellies right up.

The super-cool New York City-inspired Dirty Bones is normally one of the best places to get American food in London, but come by for brunch and you can get some start-of-the-day treats too. Pick from your choice of chicken and waffles, grilled fish tacos or the crumpets topped with short rib, avocado or salmon for a bit of a British twist. Try out their other venues in Shoreditch, Canarby, and Kensington too.

Sitting right next to Canary Wharf station, Smollenskys is one of the best places to eat American pancakes in London for a couple of reasons. Firstly, their alfresco dining terrace looks over Reuters Plaza, which means you get a great view while you eat. Secondly, these guys know their modern American food, so expect stacks of pancakes that go above and beyond the usual stodgy fodder.

Maxwell's pretty much bleeds red, white and blue, from its bright diner-esque interiors to its menu that consistently delivers North America hits. If you're after a London American breakfast, head here, and not only will you fill your belly on delicious food, you can wash it down with smoothies, cocktails… or even a freakshake.

Blues Kitchen Brixton

Blues Kitchen Brixton isn't just about delivering the sweet sounds of music in one of the coolest venues in the city, they also boast one of the best American breakfasts in London. Channelling traditional and Deep South cuisine, you can munch on pancakes, a 'full American', or even some delicious creole crab.

If you ask anyone where to eat an American breakfast in London, there's one place that'll pop into everybody's head: The Breakfast Club. The retro-style diner has everything from Elvis waffles to pancakes to an All-American breakfast, so if you want the full North American experience, pop in here. And if you stay a bit later, their secret bar Dr Kluger's Olde Town Tavern opens up for some seriously cool drinking.
