Hearty Halal Breakfasts in West London

It’s not for nothing that breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, even more so, of course, when it’s Halal and healthy.

This meal ends the overnight fasting period and replenishes the supply of glucose, as well as other important nutrients, to keep our energy levels up right throughout the day.

So to help you kickstart yours, here’s a comprehensive list of restaurants and cafes across West London that offer good Halal breakfasts.

And here’s FtL’s recommendation of Halal breakfasts in North London, East London and South London.

HALAL STATUS Fully Halal

Makan Cafe is a Malaysian eatery that does a variety of all-day traditional and non-traditional breakfasts.

Their signature dishes include Nasi Lemak, the Chef’s Recommendation: Char Kuey Tiaw, and one that’s loved by kids and adults alike: Banana Buttons.

  • I’ve been to cafe concerta in Kensington. The food was good but I have to say the last time I went there I saw cockroaches on the table. Definitely would not go back after that.
