MARIA’S MARKET CAFÉ
Maria Moruzzi serves the best full English breakfasts to stallholders and visitors alike at her café in the middle of the market’s Three Crown Square. Maria Moruzzi, a true Borough Market stalwart. Her parents opened Borough Cafe on Park Street in 1961. Maria began working there as a seven-year-old and eventually took over running the place. She has been part of the fabric of Borough Market ever since.
At Maria’s Market Cafe, her bubble and squeak, hearty breakfasts and strong tea have been served up to everyone from market porters to Hollywood film stars. Maria’s Market Café, The Market Porter, 9 Stoney Street, Borough Market, London
A British steakhouse and cocktail bar chain. The original establishment is in Spitalfields, near to where the architect Nicholas Hawksmoor built Christ Church. Subsequently, there are four other restaurants in London: in Seven Dials, Air Street near. Hawksmoor has finally brought its winning steaks and cocktails combo to a warehouse space around the back of the market. And it’s all very delicious! Hawksmoor Borough, 16 Winchester Walk, London Bridge, London. Thehawksmoor.com
Where is the nearest Underground train station? – Borough Market Nearest Tube
London Bridge is on the Northern and Jubilee line is the nearest tube underground to Borough Market. You also have Bank and Monument on the Circle and District line just a short walk to the market. Borough Station on Northern line (Bank branch) is also a short walk to Borough market.
Essentially you have London Bridge station in the middle and you have Monument/Bank station and Borough station on either side of London Bridge Station. So depending on where you are coming from either of those stations are fine and it’s a short walk. So don’t be tempted into thinking about changing stations so you can come out of London bridge is quicker. It may be quicker to actually walk from the other stations.
