Breakfast at the Tate Modern Restaurant, South Bank, London

Panoramic views encompassing St. Paul's Cathedral, the Millenium Bridge and the skyscrapers of the Square Mile make it well worth hiking up the stairs to the seventh floor of the Tate Modern or queuing for the lift. If you come on a weekday morning, you should be able to get one of the high black seats lined up against the bar, overlooking the river. As you would expect, the decor is minimalist and stylish, particularly the exceptionally slimline floorboards. Although the lattes are pricey, tepid and small, the fresh orange juice is good and the Danish pastries are light and tasty. 7/10
