The Morning After in S.E. London
|| Depending on the state
of your head, you’ll either need a big greasy
fry-up or a healthy burst of citrus and South East London has plenty of both options in
Firstly, those that like a full hearty breakfast after the night before have a wide selection of cafes
and pubs to choose from, and many offer an “all
day breakfast” option, so it really doesn’t
matter what time you roll out of bed.
Try Al’s Café [map],
Bermondsey Street, which is a great place for a large mug of tea and a fry-up that even a trucker
would be proud of.
Blackfriars Café [map],
Blackfriars Road, is another traditional café offering
that essential all day breakfast. Alternatively,
stay on Blackfriars Road and head to Café Pronto [map] for a caffeine fix and choice of a vast selection
of coffee and tea.
Just around the corner you’ll find the fabulously-titled Laughing Gravy [map] bar and restaurant that
does the perfect Sunday dinner and
other traditional British food. There’s also some
excellent steamed puddings on offer
if you need a sugar hit.
Head to Hobbes [map],
Bedale Street, for some really authentic London food.
We’re talking pie and mash with lashings
of gravy, the perfect way to get over a hangover. If your
stomach can handle it perhaps you’ll also be tempted
by jellied eels. Perhaps not.
If you think that hair of the dog will work check out The Walrus Social [map],
Westminster Bridge Road. The Walrus Social has two large chill out rooms and an ambient mood. There’s
a great menu with a wide selection of panini, ciabatta, jacket potatoes and hearty pies on offer,
as well as a warming stew as part of the specials board.
Alternatively, for some great head-clearing scenery across
the River Thames head to the Blue Print Café,
located at The Design Museum [map], Butlers Wharf, for
a selection of snacks in the daytime and European
cuisine in the evenings.
