Fill up in the heart of a community cafe
This is an old school greasy spoon cafe on Bethnal Green Road, but one with a touch of class since it has been around since 1900

Still owned by the same Italian family as when it was founded, you can expect some friendly banter when coming in for your cup of tea or full English breakfast.

The service is part of the charm and you will get "young lady" and "gentleman" and a bit of gentle ribbing if you don't finish one of the massive breakfasts!

Massive Hash Brown Breakfast

We went after a big Turkish the day before so suffered this indignity... well, Sophie did anyway.

They do lunches, fish and chips, and so on, but for us it was all about big breakfasts and greasy spoon goodness.

The Menu

The breakfast comes in many varieties and can be customised to your liking. Expect beans, tomatoes, bacon, toast or fried bread, black pudding, hash browns, bubble and squeak, eggs and "quality sausage". The sausage was actually the only thing that was a bit disappointing for me but everything else was great.

It's all very reasonably priced and the decor is art deco wonderful.
