Frankie and Benny’s do a bottomless breakfast from Friday to Sunday. “Enjoy free refills on your favourite breakfast dish when you visit us before noon. So will it be the warm and fluffy pancakes, mouth-watering eggs benedict or the classic British fry up? You might have to put it to a vote!” There are some conditions on this offer though – while there is no limit on reorders, you do have to reorder the same dish each time, you can’t share and you have to finish before ordering more (fair enough!). The offer is not valid at airport locations or Edinburgh Royal Mile High Street. Make sure you get the offer from the website here. You don’t need to order the unlimited breakfast though, you can order regular breakfast too like waffles, pancakes or smoked salmon.

Or why not go for The Works – a toasted brioche bun with grilled pork sausages and grilled back bacon and a fried free range egg. Personally I recommend the sizzling breakfast!
