Methodology:

Using TripAdvisor data, we gathered all the restaurants by county location (107 counties) based on type of meal (breakfast & brunch) and price (fine dining). Then, we scraped these URLs (restaurants) with the aim of collating our final list based on 4.5-to-5-star average ratings.

Then we manually checked the online price of the most expensive item across 7 categories from each restaurant’s ‘breakfast/brunch’ menu: coffee, juice/smoothie, tea, cereal/porridge/granola, pastry/toast, fruit platter, egg dish and English breakfast.

We used min-max normalisation to determine the overall ranking (0-100), with 100 being the highest score.

Note: We omitted restaurants that didn’t provide pricing information on their websites and those which only offer a set menu. Some of the menus of these restaurants change on a regular basis, while some just provide sample menus. All prices were correct according to the restaurants’ websites as of April 2021.
