One of my must-visits when in Borough Market has to be Maria’s Market Café, which I consider to be one of long-standing businesses which constitute the heart-and-soul of the ever-evolving market.
Maria Moruzzi of Maria’s Market Cafe is Borough Market’s longest serving trader - her parents started Borough Café in 1961 on Park Street, a 5-minute jaunt from where she operates now. Maria reputedly cooks up the best bubble-and-squeak in the business.

I chose the egg-bacon-black pudding-bubble and squeak combination, washed down with a mug of hot watered-down tea. It was a breakfast to end all breakfasts. I think it’s the ugliest, unhealthiest plate of sheer deliciousness I’d ever had in my life.
Absolutely loved this place for its sense of history and belonging.
