I'm flying with Cathay Pacific from Sydney to London later this month and have a bit of time at HKG between my flights, what's the best lounge to visit for breakfast?

The Pier or Wing First Class lounge!

An area of my expertise! Obviously if you have access to first class lounges those are the places to be, if only business class then they are a bit the same with The Noodle Bar. It will also depend on how long your transit is and which gate your SYD flight arrives at and your LHR flight departs from. If for example the SYD flight comes in at the higher-numbered gates at the 'bottom' end of the terminal, say 40-70, and your LHR flight departs from the 'top' end of gates 1-20 you need to allow time for that transfer and you might want to stick to The Wing or The Deck instead of The Pier because you can relax and your flight will be close at hand. The Deck gets a bit busy of a morning but it's nice to sit on the terrace area. You could also check out the Qantas lounge which is next to The Deck but its breakfast is very average.

With regards to transits, this article would be handy to read up on and maybe save to your smartphone or tablet for easy reference when you flight from Sydney arrives at Hong Kong: https://www.ausbt.com.au/fast-track-your-transit-at-hong-kong-airport

As AsiaBizTraveller has pointed out the most important factor in deciding will be your arrival and departure gates.
It's simply not worth trekking the 20 minutes+ to get to the Pier if your flight arrives or leaves from the other end of the terminal. It's quite a long walk and the other lounges are very good. Just not worth it unless you have several hours transit.

If you have "a bit of time at HKG", you can then check out all of them one by one and decide for yourself. Personally, I like the Wonton Noodle Soup served at the QF lounge, the taste is very authentic and better than CX's noodles. You need to ask the waiters/waitresses inside the lounge for them to bring one bowl to you.
For what it's worth, I do prefer breakfast at The Wing first class because it has a decent buffet spread alongside the Ã la carte menu – The Pier is a better lounge in almost every other respect (although The Wing has those indulgent cabana suites which can be nice for a pre-flight soak if you have the time and can get one, they do tend to be booked out pretty quickly). See https://www.ausbt.com.au/revisiting-cathay-pacific-s-the-wing-first-class-lounge-at-hong-kong for a little more on my thoughts here...

I've only ever visited The Pier business class lounge and it's great, between the noodle bar and the buffet and barista coffee I am set for a yummy breakfast before my flight!

To extend this slightly. What would be the best (Lounge) lunch venue in HK airport. I’ve got a c5 hr layover before a flight this Friday (11-16:00) and can’t be bothered venturing into town. Very happy lounge hopping. Sadly recently dropped back from top tier one world status due to moving most of my flying to SQ. I’m ticketed on CX business class for this one. So al but the first class lounges should be in play!
