Let's call it a morning
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

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