E Pellicci. London, United Kingdom

A small, Italian family-run traditional 'caff' or 'greasy spoon' that has been serving customers (including the notorious Kray gangster brothers) since 1900. In 2005, E Pellicci was awarded Grade II listed status by English Heritage for its unique interior design.

After a recent Saturday breakfast here with my husband, we're still telling everyone we know about the overwhelmingly friendly service, ambience and delicious food. It's so rare in London to find all three in one place, and in such abundance too.

I had the full English breakfast (served all day) and my husband the vegetarian version. What's great is the option to add or swap ingredients or simply create your own full English breakfast from a long list of ingredients.

Owner Nevio served us on the day, and his mother Maria kindly gave us some of her delicious homemade bread pudding to take home with us.

Next time we're going for lunch as Maria still cooks all the pasta dishes. And a tip from Nevio - it gets very busy from around 11.00 on Saturdays (when the local hipsters roll out of bed).

Opening hours:
Mon-Sat 07.00-16.00
