There's nothing like Instagram to put your food habits in perspective. 

We realise we've been missing a trick with our measly excuse of a breakfast. While we tend to make do with a dashed piece of toast or a pot of porridge on-the-go, the food bloggers of this world have been cooking up delights such as Tahini hot chocolate, orange blossom pancakes and rhubarb chutney toast.

They are fully aware that the day just starts better with an artful sprinkling of pomegranate molasses on blueberry banana compote, or with a fresh batch of bacon flatbread. 

And while we don't always have the time to create picture-perfect breakfasts, we can at least grab some inspiration for that next lazy Sunday morning. So let your stomach rumble in anticipation and your creative juices flex, as you come take a look at a few of the most beautiful breakfasts around:
