At this Spitalfields neighborhood eatery, tradition has never been tastier thanks to chef Cass Titcombe and his talented team. The original of what is now a small chain of award-winning cafés, the Spitalfield Canteen sports a sleek, minimalist design with blocky wooden tables, gentle lighting, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Old Spitalfield Market. Simple yet satisfying is also the reigning theme on the menu, which offers classically executed British dishes made with the freshest available local ingredients. All-day breakfast favorites include eggs Benedict and cheesy Welsh rarebit, while fish and chips, succulent roast beef, and savory pies dominate the dinner menu.

Insider Tip:

Beer enthusiasts should pair their plates with a refreshing local pint, such as the orangey pale ale from Meantime brewery.
