Whatever time zone you wake up in, the best breakfasts will brighten your mood, fortify you for the day, and give you a taste of daily life in that destination. Our short list of memorable breakfasts, part of T+L’s coverage of the Best Places to Eat Like a Local, includes a Middle Eastern–inspired London café where platters of baked breads are served with the morning newspaper and a Tokyo fish market where early risers clamor for the freshest breakfast sushi. Each was chosen not just for its standout food, but also for being a part of its hometown’s cultural fabric. So don’t settle for the hotel buffet; these breakfast joints are worth the trip.
