Hi there. I wondered if anyone knew of a cheap Cafe/Greasy Spoon within about 5 mins walk from Tooley Street or any other inexpensive food places in the area? I've seen a couple on the Food/Drink pages but they're both quite limited and I'm sure there must be more.

How about The Cat & Cucumber at the corner of Tower Bridge Road and Druid Street?

Second that vote for the C&C. Good value, nice staff, 'caff food' done well.

The cat & cucumber offer a decent veggie/vegan dish - the falafel option.

Maria's in Borough Market.

Al's Cafe on Bermondsey Street for breakfast/lunch. 4.50 for a huge breakfast, including tea.

If you wander along to Shad Thames, there is a decent cafe / sandwich bar called Shades Piazza Sandwich Bar tucked in behind the Starbucks on the eastern side of Tower Bridge. They do a good range of food and outdoor seating. The only downside is they are not open on the weekends.

I think Maria's is OK, actually, though a bit rough and ready. Depending on where dronid is based, the Cat and Cucumber could be quite a hike, and if he/she is nearer the London Bridge end Maria's would be an accessible option.

Personally I think the best breakfast locally is at El Vergel, but since Lant St got blocked it's become less accessible, and it's certainly not 5 mins from Tooley St.
