This popular art deco cafe, which has been going since 1946 (the original tiling is still intact), is probably one of the most famous greasy spoons in town thanks to it appearance in several films and TV shows. It’s excellent value too with the standard brekkie coming in at just over a fiver.

The couple behind this modern British diner are committed to using only the freshest organic and free-range ingredients but don’t worry, they still know how to whip up a hangover-busting brekkie. If you can’t fit in a full English, they do a half English although we often get tempted by that pork belly benedict.
