Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day and nowhere is that fact more appreciated than at the Wolseley restaurant in London's Piccadilly.

Breakfast at the Wolseley serves up the ultimate guide to producing and enjoying a superb breakfast in the Wolseley style. There is a host of delicious recipes, whether it's fresh fruit and crisp croissants or a full English with steaming high-grade Arabica blend coffee. You can also learn more about the background and ethos of the Wolseley with a description of the building and how it became the icon it is today, including an intriguing look at how breakfast service is run at the Wolseley both at front of house and behind the scenes.
