English pubs that serve breakfast and good coffee

The Economist, 18-24 September 2010, reports on J.D.Wetherspoon, a chain of 775 pubs that opens in the morning to serve breakfast and coffee.  Wetherspoon serves more breakfasts than any other chain except McDonalds and more coffee than any other chain than Starbucks and Costa.    By opening in morning to serve non-alcoholic food and drink, Wetherspoon hopes to avoid the fate of other pubs that are disappearing at the rate of 39 per week.
