  • anyone know a good place to get a good, traditional, full english breakfast round Waterloo? Will have to be available around 10.30 on Sundays (ie non-pub).

    such are the strange challenges of my job.

  • lots of places on Lower Marsh..i think ..

  • The Blackfriars Cafe on Blackfriars Road. It's on the corner of the junction with Pocock Street. Next to Imbibe if you went to the Rapha Roller Race there.

  • there is a posh French place just across from the station at waterloo rd and the cut, and some yuppie cafes on the cut

  • yep chris Cut probably the best - sorry guys, didn't say - this is not for me and the people won't be on bikes. And are foreigners who don't know the lie of the land - so near waterloo station itself.

  • There was a good one I used to go in on the Cut when I lived there but it was 11 years ago and I can't remember the name, useful eh.

    Seem to be loads on Lower Marsh and maybe the Cut though:

    I've noticed Marie's going past and it looks good, not tried though:

  • Pajies! I know you said this isn't for you, but still - are you in town for the weekend?

  • Thanks all, blackfriars rd. lower Marsh, the Cut all great suggestions...TTIED.

    Horatio....Yes, I will be in town tomorrow!!!!! Hopefully be at the jumble for 11, or otherwise if you're not doing Dunwich I take it I'll hook with you at Brick Lane pm....?

  • Proper breakfast... not a greasy spoon with those cack non-descript sausages and bendy bacon and those filty sliced mini-mushrooms and supermarket white bread swimming in baked beans. I want proper like... I want posh sausages, nice bacon, fried tomatoes with some fucken green stuff sprinkled on top, a great big field mushroom and poached eggs cooked to perfection on a piece of grainy toast.

    Will travel for said breakfast. Any suggestions?

  • There is a place round canary wharf! Had the biggest selection of vegie stuff for the missus! I have taken my time to choose from over 20 types fo sausages they had, I'll I ask my missus what the name of it was, oh and I went on a saturday so didn't have to deal with all the twats that occupy the spot during the week ;)

  • This link is all you need for your breakfast requirements:

    Two of my faves:

    The Pavillion Cafe in Vicky Park - Balki that place ticks your boxes for an upmarket brekkie.

    There's also a great Italian Cafe in Borough (think it might be Rossi's but not sure) that does a superlative traditional. I'm going to go back there this week so I'll confirm.

    The best breakfast however is the one you cook yourself.

    Jam St Cafe, South Manchester.

  • Cook it yourself you lazy shit. :p

    seriously though ts the only way to get it Just right!

  • Not technically a greasy spoon, but my fave. Underneath arches Waterloo Road.

  • It doesn't tick some of those boxes, but any breakfast/burger at Mess Cafe'(hackney central), deserves any minute of your life, any pence from your wallet. Winner!

  • Mudchute City Farm on the Isle of Dogs is nowhere near WaterlooN but the breakfast is stonking if you can hack the wait and the Fatface pramathon.

  • Zed - you serious? Always avoided as it looks so off-putting. Look at it.

    Although i would have said the same about Bolu in Camberwell if not knowing different.

    EDIT: not for brekkie obviously.

  • Making bacon butty right now.

    Greasy spoon best I've been to is the one, Ace cafe, across the road from central middlesex hostipal

  • Jam St Cafe, South Manchester.

    BRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP­PPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!
    loves gaea.

    Mocha Joe's in Glen Waverley.

    Er, not being funny but where the hell is that?

    Melbourne.

    Cool - I have a friend who emigrated to Melbourne.

    I'll ask for his opinion - he's english so should know what's what.

  • He probably won't like it. It's not a greasy spoon type cafe. It's more a continental coffee cafe but with some slightly 'merican additions like pancakes. Go there for post-ride sugar frenzy :)
