To celebrate the ten-day countdown to the release of Breakfast at Darcy’s , Ali McNamara’s brand new rom-com novel with her trademark filmic twist, we asked our colleagues here at Little, Brown to help us come up with a list of the most memorable breakfast scenes in movies.
Competition was fierce and suggestions were great and some particularly unexpected (the breakfast scene from Alien for example. It didn’t make it onto our list, but is widely available on YouTube, and once watched you won’t forget it, we promise you!). We’ve managed to whittle it down to our top ten, which kicks off today(see below), and we’ll be posting a new scene to this website and the Between the Sheets Facebook Fanpage every day until Thursday 24th November when Breakfast at Darcy’s hits book shops.
The list is by no means definitive, so if you think we’ve missed something out (or want to query the order) get involved using the comments section below, the Facebook Fanpage or on Twitter. We love hearing from our readers!
Breakfast at Darcy’s is available in all good book shops from Thursday 24th November, and is available for pre-order now. An audio download edition of Breakfast at Darcy's will also be available in December.If you haven’t read it already, we highly recommend From Notting Hill with Love . . . Actually for your Christmas stockings too!

If Richard Gere took the liberty of ordering us everything on the breakfast menu we’d sit through his boring talk about mergers and acquisitions too!
