Full English Breakfast - lets call it FEB - is one of the best, imho.
I do like croissants and danish pastries. And I very much like waffles or pancakes, bacon, maple syrup, fruit... mmmmmm and had wonderful American breakfasts in NYC.
But nothing quite hits the spot like a FEB, when you're in the mood.
This photo isn't a bad example - its a pub breakfast, could be improved for me by the addition of black pudding and fried bread (I hardly ever ever ever have fried bread, it is so unhealthy and so so very delicious) and the subtraction of the beans - oh, and more mushrooms please. And followed by at least a small piece of hot toast and good marmalade. And of course a large, really hot and quite strong cup of tea. Ideally in a large but fine bone china cup or mug - but I wouldn't want to be fussy.
Good home-made FEBs are the best. (GHM FEBs?)
A lot of eateries in the UK now offer all-day breakfast. (ADFEB) I have mixed feelings about this phenomenon. A FEB is good up till around 11.30, I reckon, but it is segueing into brunch rather than breakfast at that point. (BFEB) (or is it just FEBr?) (that would be confusing) (or possibly even silly?)
My parents ran a guest house in Devon for around 10 years - those were the best ever home made FEBs, (oops, sorry GHM FEBs) cooked on the Aga in the large farmhouse-style kitchen. They developed a system for taking orders, so the "full works" became known in my family as BESTMs.

During the week at home I usually have fairly delicious and nutritious meusli - with lots of seeds, nuts and fruit added (can't be doing with sawdust+floor-sweepings style meusli) - or else porridge. mmmmmmmm porridge.
Saturday mornings though mmmmmmmmmmm possibly even more:
toast or bread (homemade brown/wholemeal) with a little bit more butter than is healthy, homemade marmalade, and blogging. Bliss.
(oh, and of course a large, really hot and quite strong cup of tea (or a few such). Ideally in that large but fine bone china cup or mug - I feel its ok to be fussy at home ....)
