Breakfast out with the Kids?

What do you do when the kids are up at literally the crack of dawn and tearing up the house by 8am? Here are a few ideas for child-friendly (and parent-friendly) breakfast places which we've updated with some recent finds.



Our new find is the Coach House Restaurant at Hatfield- open from 10am. A scrummy selection of home baked cakes, decent coffee and tea in tea pots- heaven on a plate and a treat for a Sunday morning.




Vero Cafe, Woodside Park

For something more local, we are regular visitors at Vero Cafe in Sussex Ring, Woodside Park. Delicious coffee, and reasonably priced breakfasts make this an ideal pitstop with the kids for breakfast. 



Feast on the Hill, Muswell Hill

A quirky cafe with delicious home made food. An extensive breakfast/brunch menu should satisfy the fussiest of appetites, all at reasonable prices. And once you've enjoyed a fabulous cup of strong coffee you can dive into Fagin's Toys with the children.


The Brew House Cafe, Kenwood House



The cafe serves a range of cooked breakfasts, pastries and homemade granola and muesli. Not cheap but a fun treat for a Sunday morning, especially when you can sit outside in the sunshine. Time Out gave The Brew House 4 stars (see full review here).

North London Toddler thinks Kenwood House is "Windy Castle" and most enjoys having a run/roll down to the lake before filling up on toast and jam.

The Waffle Cafe, Belmont Children's Farm


The Waffle Cafe offers (as you would expect) a range of waffles plus other breakfast and light lunch options. There is a kids meal option which includes a juice. Located at the entrance to the farm, this is a good option for breakfast before heading off to visit the animals.

Gail's, Crouch End/Hampstead/St. John's Wood


A real treat for parents, Gail's artisan bakery (now in 8 locations) serves a delicious range of breads, cakes and pastries.  There is a fantastic breakfast menu featuring highlights such as homemade granola with yoghurt or brioche french toast with roasted quince. Breakfast is available in all branches on weekdays, and in Hampstead and St John's Wood on weekends.

Boulangerie Bonne Matin, Stroud Green

This relative newcomer to the area has proved a hit with locals. In addition to the tantalising selection of pastries the cafe offers a good breakfast menu, including delicious French toast which was a hit with North London Toddler.

Banners, Crouch End


A firm family favourite serving excellent breakfasts and extremely child friendly, this is an excellent place to come any time of day. The menu is very wide ranging and we particularly like the refried beans. Yum.

The Blue Legume, Stoke Newington and Angel Islington

Possibly the most child-friendly restaurant in North London, this is a super place to come for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have an extensive kids menu including kid-sized fresh smoothies and juices. Both are in great locations for post breakfast shopping and strolling.

Do you agree with our selection? Have you got a favourite breakfast option for the kids? Do tell us what you think and tell us if you visit any of these places that you haven't been to before.
