I use this site a lot to find good restaurants etc. One question which seems unanswered on this site is: what's the best cafe in Borough?

I'm looking for a place that serves good coffee and a does a good brunch - nice fry up with decent sausages.

Could try Terrys on Great Suffolk Street, though I don't drink coffee so can't recommend that - great fry up and proper bubble!

For me it has to be the Anatolian on Bartholemew Street, right by the Bricklayers Arms roundabout.

Fantastic fry-up, fantastic value, fantastic tea... door wedge toast

and if the way of assessing the place is by the numbers of brickies, drivers etc, all i can say is that you can't move for luminous jackets at 7:30 in the morning

oh, and the people are lovely too - very friendly.

Dream caff!

Terry's on Great Suffolk Street is fantastic. If you want a good bacon sandwich they do proper thick sliced bread.

Also, the Best Of Bermondsey cafe on Grange Road does a great fry-up too.

Hmmm. Terry's must have changed recently. Both times I went I recall, it stank like old socks and the food was fried to shrivelled oily lumps. Chips were cold. Food took ages. I have seen them produce a huge doorstop of a salt beef sandwich - but I couldn't take the smell so have foresworn it. Has it changed?

Jade - further on up Borough High St. does OK food. Again, though I was put off - this time by a scene at the front (where some of the food is 'prepared'). Where this huge baked potato came up from the subterranean kitchens. The guy cut it in half revealing a centre fully rotted through (all brown/black). So he happily cut it out and squashed the two halves together prior to microwaving and serving up. They do nice chips though…

La Palma on Union St. My normal haunt. Service - erratic. The pasta can be good - especially the penne arrabiata, and they are happy to serve it up with chips (see a theme in my diet perhaps?). It is big enough that you can always get a seat even when its busy).

The best caff in the Borough (although it is possibly just outside) is the Blackfriars café - which combines good food with really friendly and swift service. And pretty good chips of course.

<* off to lunch now *>

Borough Cafe was always the best, the bubble and squeak was fantastic. I'm off to Terry's tomorrow morning - I'll report back.

If you get put off by Terry's, pop across the road to the Giggling Sausage - decor not great but the food is good
