Borough Market

Borough market is one of the best places to eat in the area. The full market is open Wednesday–Saturday, but you’ll find a good selection of street food on Monday & Tuesday as well.

These are some favourites:

Maria’s Market Cafe

Inside Borough market, Maria’s cafe is one of the best places in London for traditional bubble and squeak. Try the full English breakfast or a cheese, bacon and bubble and squeak bap.
Open: Wednesday–Saturday.
Address: Middle Market, Borough Market, SE1


Delicious toasted cheese sandwiches made with Montgomery Cheddar, Pôilane sourdough bread and onions, leek and garlic. The Raclette (melted cheese, potatoes and pickles) is worth a try.
Open: Thursday-Saturday.
Address: Borough Market Kitchen, Borough Market, SE1


If your only experience of a Scotch Egg is a cardboard-like creation from a supermarket, try an artisan one from Scotchtails. Comes with or without sweet potato fries.
Open: Monday–Saturday
Address: Borough Market Kitchen, Borough Market, SE1

Brindisa Chorizo Roll

Temporarily closed
Brindisa, the Spanish food importers, sell a fried chorizo, rocket and piquillo pepper ciabatta roll. People sell something similar at street food markets around London. This is the original and the best.
Open: Monday–Saturday
Address: The Floral Hall, Borough Market, SE1

Absolutely Starving

Near Hay’s Galleria, Absolutely Starving serve a bit of everything — soup, sandwiches, savouries and other hot dishes. Don’t be put off by the queues. It’s worth the wait.
Open: Daily
Address: 51 Tooley St, SE1 2HD

M Manze

Established in 1902, this is the oldest shop in London serving traditional London minced beef pie and mash. It’s cheap, not gourmet food, but the interior alone is worth a trip.
Address: 87 Tower Bridge Rd, SE1 4TW (zoom out to view on map)
