The Most Innovative Breakfast in London

It’s official: Tried & True café in Putney offers the most innovative breakfast in the country! The café was awarded the Best Breakfast Award for their BBQ Pulled Pork Benedict when the winners were announced on Monday, and today was our chance to try itmers doing so each wee.


Tried & True entered their BBQ Pulled Pork breakfast believing their popular dish – consisting of spice rubbed pork tossed in their own smokey BBQ sauce and served with homemade jalapeno cheddar cornbread and poached free range eggs with chilli butter and spring onions - is a great start to the day. And it appears the public couldn’t agree more as they placed their votes for this unusual breakfast! We have to say it was quite unlike any breakfast we've had before.

Rob Kelly, Owner of Tried & True, a café bringing a touch of New Zealand to London, said: “We are overjoyed at winning this award. We created this breakfast dish to be the ultimate breakfast with a difference and it is now our signature breakfast offering. It is a combination of Antipodean and North American breakfast cultures. We know our customers love our BBQ Pulled Pork Benedict, it is extremely popular at the weekends but it’s lovely to know that they have taken the time to vote for us and we would like to thank them all.”

We would like to congratulate Tried & True for their fabulous breakfast. These awards set out to highlight the range of breakfasts available when eating out whether that be at a café, farm shop, restaurants or hotel. We know that Britain is great at doing breakfast but Tried & True have shown that there are other countries that are pretty good at it too.

We also delivered Tried & True's dish into national radio stations so DJs like Dr Fox and Chris Evans had the chance to taste breakfast innovation for themselves.

We've got one more stop on our Best Breakfast Awards tour - tomorrow we'll be at Cafe Alf Resco, Dartmouth to sample Alf's Granola - the best cold breakfast in the country.
