Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper – that’s how the old saying goes!
Here at The Shankly Preston, we wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment because breakfast is our favourite meal of the day (especially when we’re eating out in Preston).
There are brilliant cafes and brunching spots all over the city, so whether you fancy a healthy smashed avocado or a hearty full English, you’re sure to find some of the best breakfasts in Lancashire right on your doorstep.
From cute little cafes to quirky brew bars, we’ve pulled together a list of the best places in Preston to grab your morning meal…
Town House Coffee and Brew Bar Preston
This award-winning coffee shop is a vegan and veggie heaven. Crowned Independent Business of the Year in Preston for 2018, it serves up specialist coffee and fantastic brunching options for Preston’s hungry inhabitants.
If you’re struggling to chose from their menu, why not treat yourself to a stack of delicious pancakes or try the ‘smashed avo’ dish – it’s the Town House’s most popular breakfast item from their locally sourced menu.
And if you order a hot drink, look out for the beautiful latte artwork that adorns each lovingly-made coffee.

Cure your hangover with the decadent brunch offerings from Fives. Grab ‘The Works’ (a full English) or ‘Steak and a Kiss’ for a hearty breakfast or tuck into their incredible pancake combinations if you enjoy a sweet kick to the morning. Feeling fool-hardy? Request a breakfast cocktail to blow away those night-before cobwebs.
Plus, the Fives Sunday Lunch menu is the talk of the town, so if you’re not out of bed until lunchtime, it’s an ideal spot for serious brunch-ers.
49-52 Guild Hall Street, Preston
Brew + Bake Preston
Located inside Preston Market Hall, Brew + Bake take coffee seriously.
Alongside serving up a seasonal brunch menu, they brew with sustainable beans in the quest to make the perfect cup.

The clue is in the name – if you’re looking for a breakfast that fills all your cravings, Ravenous on Cannon Street might just hit the spot.
From Fish Finger Butties to one of Lancashire’s favorite fry-ups, with decadent cakes and bakes in-between (think Jammy Dodger and white chocolate cake), you won’t be moving anywhere fast after sitting down for brunch at this café!
12 Cannon St PR1 3NR
South American is a rare cuisine to find at a breakfast stop in the UK, but Cafuné will have you wondering why there aren’t more cafes like it around.
This brightly-decorated brunch spot serves the best coffee from the South American continent, including specials such as Brazilian Cappuccino (a coffee with Nutella) and Argentinian coffee (a touch of dulce de leche added).
For a fully immersive experience, try the Cafuné Breakfast, complete with sausage, bacon, black beans, fried egg, tomato, fried plantain, avocado slices and arepa (a bread from Venezuela made with ground maize dough).
Health-food fanatics should indulge in the Açaí Bowl, a traditional sorbet from Brazil topped with granola, or the Avocado Crunch Cream Bowl.

The Shankly Hotel Breakfast Preston
The Shankly Preston is a 65-bed luxury hotel that celebrates the unique relationship between Preston and legendary footballer Bill Shankly. Opening in April 2019, it’s set to be a go-to brunch spot in the city.
Located within the Old Post Office at the heart of Preston, The Shankly will follow its sister hotel in Liverpool in providing luxurious accommodation, an opulent events space and incredible food and drink for visitors and locals alike. Signature Living are renowned for restoring landmark buildings into elegant hotels while retaining their character and rich past.
