From cafes to pubs, there are plenty of decent places for fry ups in Brum. Here are some of the recommendations BirminghamLive readers have made on where to go in the city for a good traditional British breakfast.

City Nites agrees that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and you can’t go far wrong with a good fry up.

The Clock Cafe, Northfield

This is a traditional greasy spoon renowned for its cosy atmosphere.  Lal Kundan, Cathrine Boles,  Heather Handyside all recommend it.

It’s so popular that back in 2015 it welcomed a celebrity diner – politician turned Strictly Come Dancing star Ed Balls!

According to Helen Garbett, Wetherspoon pubs do a great veggie brekkie. But their meaty fry ups look pretty tasty too.
