Fodor's Expert Review E. Pellicci
It's all Cockney banter and full English breakfasts at this tiny family-run café and onetime gangsters' lair near Brick Lane and Columbia Road markets. A rowdy hole-in-the-wall, E. Pellicci serves the greasy fry-ups Londoners still adore, like copious scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, baked beans, toast, tomatoes, fried mushrooms, black pudding, cabbage 'n' mash, and scorching hot tea. Matriarch Mama Maria also rustles up Toscana lasagna, cannelloni, and steamed sponge pudding. Your arteries may clog up, but your wallet will survive, as everything on the breakfast menu is less than £8.
