CUT at 45 Park Lane, Mayfair
Wolfgang Puck's first European restaurant, CUT at 45 Park Lane, offers a slice of Americana in Mayfair. The sleek eatery offers arguably London's best steaks, but for breakfast it's the Buttermilk Pancakes that steal the show.
Served with sett whipped mapple butter and the freshest seasonal berries, these fluffy cinnamon morning treats are delicious. For an added taste indulgence order a side of pork sausage or streaky bacon.

Jackson + Rye, Soho
The diner in Soho lit low with a New York style, the buttermilk pancakes come with a helping of crushed banana and mapple cream but its the added salty bacon that gives the perfect morning feed.
