Let's call it a morning

Ten years ago today, I launched this blog. Today I'm Closing it. Well, not closing it so much as letting it be. The 522 reviews (and op-eggs) it contains, written by 106 contributors, will still be available to read, but this will be the last new post.

By way of goodbye, here's a 'best of' list of sorts. Not of the best places to eat breakfast, but a very small sample of personal favourites from the countless surprising, funny and strangely touching pieces that have showed up over the years.

Although I hope it has sometimes proved useful, this site has only ever been roughly fifty percent about breakfast. The rest has been about seeing what we could get away with. This annoyed some casual readers. 'Your spry and flippant musings are irritating, and irrelevant,' one complained. Spry, flippant, irritating – fine, maybe – but irrelevant? Impossible. The point has been that nothing is irrelevant when it comes to breakfast.

So here's the list. It was difficult to compile, and I compiled it too quickly. And if this website still attracted comments other than from users with names like 'Car Service Gatwick', I'd ask: 'what were your favourites?':

Cereal Killer Cafe, Shoreditch by Haulin' Oats

Cora's, Montreal by Poppy Tartt

Daiwa Sushi, Tsukiji Fish Market, Tokyo by Hashley Brown

The Dervish, Stoke Newington by H.P. Seuss

First Great Western Railways, Swansea to London by Moose Lee

Frank's Cafe, Southwark by Evelyn Waughffle

Maison Bertaux, Soho by Gracie Spoon

Paper Moon Diner, Baltimore by Joyce Carol Oats

Republican Party Pancake Breakfast, Brunswick, Ohio by T.N. Toost

Yummy's Cafe, Spitalfields by Blake Pudding

Workers Cafe, Archway by Fi Tatta

You know what – just look at the full list. They're all great. Click one at random. Do it. Now.
