Best Breakfast Winner revealed

After hundreds of entries and thousands of votes we can now finally announce the results of the 2015 Best Breakfast Awards. For the second year running, the winner can be found near the world famous Penny Lane in Liverpool, with reigning champions The Tavern Company’s Full English once again being named the best breakfast in the country.


The Tavern Company’s dish consists of two specialist sausages (made to the owner’s own recipe), lean back bacon, egg, grilled tomato, black pudding, mushrooms and baked beans together with extra thick sliced toast, made with fresh locally baked bread. And if that wasn’t enough, every breakfast is served with bottomless tea or coffee, all of which helped Tavern Company drum up significant support from customers to walk away with the top prize.

We visited them this morning to present the award to owner Keith Gurney in the first stop of our Best Breakfast tour.

Later this week we will be jetting off to Northern Ireland to visit Oliver’s Coffee Bar in Belfast. Their range of Breakfast Scones, including Raspberry & White Chocolate and Pear & Almond flavours picked up the most votes in the Cold Breakfast category.

We’d like to say thank you to everyone that entered and voted in the awards. We launched the awards last year to recognise the huge range of breakfasts available at venues up and down the country. Today some of the best food you can enjoy out is served at breakfast time and we felt it was time this was recognised.

Here is the full list of winners and we would like to congratulate them all – we’d also love to hear from anyone who has visited one of these venues for breakfast. We have one final award to announce on Wednesday – the Most Unique or Innovative Breakfast, as chosen by the Shake Up Your Wake Up team and guest judge Phil Vickery. Stay tuned for more information.
