Recommended Breakfast Spots near St. Pancras?

Hi all

We'll be staying in a Premier Inn near St. Pancras next spring and would be interested in any recommendation for breakfast in the area. The plan is to eat breakfast somewhere close before heading out for each day's "adventure". Any and all recommendations are welcome as we're open to almost any kind of food...well, except liver. lol

Thanks in advance for you time and thoughts.

I was in this situation a couple years ago and had a great breakfast at upscale Le Pain Quotidien chain each morning (food at Premier Inn was disgusting). It's in the lower level of the station where most all the shops and other eateries are located. Also lots of other eateries inside King Cross station next door.

We stayed at the St Pancras PI on our last stay. We usually ate breakfast at the Pret a Manger at the end of the block. As Emma said, their pastries are good, the coffee is very good, and the oatmeal is excellent. If memory serves, we went to the pub next door for a full English breakfast (heart attack on a plate) one morning. But that type of breakfast is a once a year deal for me.

Before you go out for breakfast, take a look at the breakfast buffet at your Premier Inn. These can vary in quality; the one in my Liverpool PI wasn't so good, so I only had it once, but the one in my London PI was good, so I had it every day.

If you don't need a substantial breakfast, you can do what I did in Liverpool, and get food from a supermarket for breakfast (I often got yogurt). Looking at Google Maps, I see several supermarkets near your hotel (one in Kings Cross station).

We stayed in the area earlier this year and enjoyed breakfast at Sandwich Street Kitchen.

Who is the we, if there are kids, Premier Inn has a kids eat free option.

For me, if I’m staying at a Premier Inn, I take the breakfast there 99% of the time unless I have definite lunch plans. For me, it’s just easier and I use the time to plan my day and catch up on emails and social media. I freely admit I’m not a foodie. I eat enough of the buffet that it’ll often tide me over until dinner, I often skip lunch or have a very light one. I’ll stop for a beer or two between my morning and afternoon activities

We stayed at the Premier Inn across from the British Library (one of a few PI's near St. Pancras) two years ago and the breakfast wasn't all that bad.

There are tons of places in the area, you'll not struggle.

A few suggestions turn right out of the hotel and walk down towards Kings X there is a large pub on the same side of the road called the Euston Flyer (a Weatherspoons type, but not if that makes sense). Opposite the EF on the other side of the road there is a smaller pub on a corner called the Rocket that does breakfasts too, last time I passed it I recall a 'full' English was £3.99. You could walk up to Kings X station and there are loads of food outlets in the new foyer, including the Parcel Yard at the top of the atrium. Or you could go the other way to Euston and outside station itself, there are food outlets too. There are stacks of franchise places down or off the Euston Road, Pret a Manger, Burger King etc. You'll not starve.
