Best hungover breakfast
Christina's Pub


Just outside of the Richmond gates lies Christina's Pub - breakfast central to everyone from first-year students to Western graduates to old, rich couples walking over from their large house on Victoria Street. But most importantly, Christina's is a haven for those students who drank hard the night before and are looking for a big, greasy breakfast to satisfy their hangover-hungries and soak up any remaining alcohol. Always packed Friday to Sunday mornings, Christina's serves it all - fried eggs, seasoned hash browns, bacon, sausages, pancakes and, of course, "french toast lovers" - providing the perfect hangover breakfast for Western students who are on a tight budget. A major reason Christina's is the best place in London for breakfast doesn't even have to do with the food. One must give credit to the restaurant's patient, friendly waitresses (a couple of them are even called "mom" by their regular customers) who serve table after table of hungover customers - many who often ask for only a pitcher of water to drink and a couple refills on their coffees. A night out drinking just wouldn't be complete without including that morning after breakfast - and, for that, Christina's is just around the corner.
