JAM London Burrough Market Breakfast Sandwich

Borough Market

Food Emporium

If you're hungry, like we were one morning in the rain, head over to covered Borough Market located next to the London Bridge just south of the river. We had paella for breakfast that rivaled what we ate in Valencia, Spain on a recent trip (birth home of said dish). One highlight was a pastry stand by Bread Ahead and their irresistible mountain of perfect cinnamon buns (with or without cream cheese frosting on top). There are stalls, stands, wholesale, retail, flowers, spices (we found some stellar fun ones at Spice Mountain easy to bring home) and lots of good food!
