Stony Street Cafe

Just a stone's throw from a couple of Starbucks and the other big name establishments squeezed between Southwark Bridge and London Bridge is a homey little reprieve - the Stony Street Cafe. On Stony Street (duh) across from Borough Market, this bakery/cafe/sandwich shop with its large wooden tables and view of the market is a topnotch spot for contemplation over a cuppa. The staff is exceptionally friendly - if somewhat lackadaisical - and the place exudes an overall feeling of bucolic calm ... on a weekday morning anyway. With the Saturday market on, however, I can only imagine this cafe would be brimming with patrons.

I can vouch that their bacon sandwich really hits the spot and that their soups look and smell very appetizing.
