Another East Durham favorite when it comes to Irish cuisine, McGrath’s Edgewood Falls celebrates 50 years as a well-loved mini resort. While you can book a room to stay at the inn to explore the Irish culture of Greene County, you can also stop in to dine on authentic meals for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Opt for the original Irish breakfast to satisfy your craving for farm-fresh eggs, Irish sausage, white and black pudding, fried tomatoes, breakfast potatoes, beans, and freshly baked Irish soda bread.

New to the Hudson Valley culinary scene, Moreish is a British-inspired eatery that just set up shop in Beacon’s Hudson Valley Food Hall. The restaurant has all the classics, from bangers and mash to Cornish pasties to sausage rolls, but the full English breakfast is by far the star of the show. If you’re dying to try the fry-up but you’re not too keen on meat, Moreish also offers a veggie English breakfast to accommodate dietary restrictions.

Housed in a building that was constructed sometime around 1736, The Olde English Pub certainly lives up to its name. The Albany eatery serves an eclectic English menu that focuses on pub fare and classics like fish and chips or shepherd’s pie. If you’re coming for brunch, indulge in the full English for two sunny-side eggs, baked beans, sausage, bacon, toast, mushrooms, blistered tomatoes, and home fries.

Honorable Mention

Florrie Kaye’s Tea Room


At Florrie Kaye’s, it’s all about the experience. The tearoom will transport diners to England immediately after stepping inside, and a cardboard cutout of the Queen is even there to greet visitors. Victorian furniture, antique décor, and assorted china all add to the illusion of royalty at this Carmel hotspot. Even though the restaurant doesn’t offer a full English breakfast as a mainstay, the coveted fry-up makes an appearance on the Sunday brunch menu every so often, so be on the lookout. In the meantime, stop in for high tea, complete with British scones, sausage rolls, or tea sandwiches.
